Das Racist Detained & Deported In The UK

Political hip-hop collective Das Racist did not make it to their concert in London on Monday night (December 13th) since the group was denied entry, detained for more than eight hours in the airport, and deported back to Switzerland” after being stopped at UK customs. Contrary to the general assumption, it was not their “political views” that hindered them to enter UK-soil. Das Racist has published an official statement regarding the actual reasons behind this affair.

We were not deported (or removed) because of our “political views,” that was a joke. Maybe a stupid one. We were removed due to paperwork and visa issues that are being enforced more strictly than they had been in the past. ASK MIA ABOUT IT, YA’LL. Also, this happens to musicians (and non-musicians) all the time, we were merely documenting it.

Yesterday, because of some sticklerism on the part of UK Customs regarding paperwork, we were denied entry, detained for 8+ hours in the airport, and deported back to Switzerland.

You can read the rest of the story on the band’s website.
