Maroon 5 released a new music video for their song, “Animals,” on September 29. In the four days since it’s been released, the video has almost four million views.  It depicts Adam Levine as a stalker who follows a pretty blonde, played by his real life wife Behati Prinsloo, the Victoria’s Secret model, and fantasizes about gory, bloody “love” scenes.  The internet seemed to implode, saying the video was misogynistic.  While the song is infectious in all the right ways, the internet was right to complain.  Maroon 5’s music video depicted stalking and sexual violence as sexy.  This is a real problem real women (and men) face every day.  When 8% of women and 2% of men have been stalked at one point in their lives (University of Missouri at St Louis) and 80% of women who suffer from physical or sexual violence at the hands of a current or previous intimate partner were stalked (Intimate Partner Violence), maybe Maroon 5 shouldn’t glorify stalking and sexual violence.
