About Shapiro
Shapiro, and its variations such as Shapira, Schapiro, Schapira, Sapir, Sapira, Spira, Sapiro, Szapiro/Szpiro (in Polish) and Chapiro (in French or Spanish), is a Jewish surname which can be either Ashkenazi or Sephardi.

After reading out the song’s lyrics, Shapiro expressed his disapproval over its message. “This is what feminists fought for,” he said of the single’s explicit lines. “This is what the feminist movement was all about, and if you say anything differently it’s ’cause you’re a misogynist, see?”

Shapiro said that ‘WAP’ becomes “significantly more vulgar” as it goes on, before proceeding to recite its second verse, which includes the lines: “Talk your shit, bite your lip/ Ask for a car while you ride that dick/ You really ain’t never gotta fuck him for a thang/ He already made his mind up ‘fore he came“.

“Wanna lose your ability to become horny? Just listen to Ben Shapiro read the lyrics to WAP,” one Twitter user said. Another added: “Ben Shapiro is not fooling me, he just wanted an excuse to watch the WAP music video.”

A third commented: “Can’t believe I finally learned what WAP means through a Ben Shapiro video. Kind of depressing.”

This comes after Cardi B defended the casting of Kylie Jenner in the official video for ‘WAP’ following a backlash from fans, while PETA have also issued a response to the clip’s apparent use of big cats.
