Watkin Tudor Jones and Yolandi Visser of Die Antwoord perform during day 3 of Southside Festival on June 21, 2015 in Neuhausen, Germany.

While the Rick Ross and Skrillex collab “Purple Lamborghini” from the Suicide Squad soundtrack is totally and utterly dope, it seems that might be the best part of the film. It's getting rough reviews from critics, fans, and South African rave-rap groups for being a lil bit too uninspired.

Die Antwoord's Yolandi Vassir got on Instagram and pointed out a few things that had her and partner Ninja wondering if director David Ayer didn't copy their look. She also told how Ayer hit Ninja up during the filming process but didn't ask permission to take visual notes from the group. Check her argument below.

 

yes David Ayer u jockin our style. callin ninja up before your movie came our pretendin 2b down, so it looks OK when u bite our black & white graf style & our opening sequence to umshiniwam & an all da lil tiny details u nibbeld dat other people wont see but we notice. Cara & Jared told us how much u were talkin abt us on set but u never asked our permision to rip us off. An when ninja texted u sayin wassup wif dat u said nothin like a scared lil bitch. U were jus flauntin our names pretendin to b down. u aint down an u never will b. but before we knew da extent of ur two face nature - u invited us to ur movie premiere(which i didnt wanna go to) but ninja went , tinkin ur solid guy an mayb there was jus a lil "misunderstandin". Den poor ninja had to sit thru dat hole bullshit movie. An u even got da nerve to say wassup to him smilin - an ninja has to b nice cus he is there wif his kid. But we all tink u wack. U shud start a crew called:,"im a fake fuck" ask kanye if he wants to join u. Cum show ur pretty face at my studios. U know Muggs & u know where da Soul Assasin Studios at. we watin for u. @djmuggs_the_black_goat_ @zef_alien @boojie_baby_ @ragingzefboner @_dark_force_ @dejanvisser @djhitekisgod @jipsi518
