Die Antwoord Slams 'Suicide Squad' Director David Ayer For Plagiarizing Their Style

“yes David Ayer u jockin our style. Den poor ninja had to sit thru dat hole bullshit movie. “

Shared via an Instagram post, Die Antwoord accused Suicide Squad director David Ayer with plagiarizing their style. Within the post, a video is shown featuring side-by-side comparisons that include Jared Leto’s Joker and Die Antwoord’s Ninja and Yolandi vs. Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn.

They claimed not to know about their likeness being used until the movie premiere:

“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.”

The post also claimed Cara Delevingne & Jared Leto made comments about “how much u [Ayer] were talkin abt us on set but u never asked our permissionn to rip us off.” Watch the video and read the livid caption 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.
