Mr. Ghetto's 'Walmart' Too Hot For YouTube


NOLA Bounce artist Mr. Ghetto had a viral video in his grasp, only to see it slip away. Those of us who attempted, for the 56th time, to bathe ourselves in the glory of seeing honeys get their booty slapped by a Louisiana Purchase card were loathe to find the video wasn't available this afternoon. When clicking play, the YouTube player produces a message that says the video has been "removed as a violation of YouTube's policy on nudity or sexual content." But, really, it's not like there aren't any other Bounce videos on the Tube. Haven't they ever been to Club Caesar's? Luckily, the video is still available via Perez Hilton. Click through to see it again.
