LOS ANGELES:- South African musicians Die Antwoord has accused “Suicide Squad” director David Ayer of ripping off their unique visual style. Yolandi Visser, the rap-rave outfit’s lead singer, posted a lengthy, blistering rant on Instagram, which began by telling the director of the Warner Bros. super anti-hero film: “Yes David Ayer u jockin our style.” She went on to claim that she had learned through the film’s stars, Cara Delevingne and Jared Leto, that Ayer had been enthusing about Die Antwoord on set, adding: “but u never asked our permission to rip us off.”–AFP

 The 31-year-old alleged that her bandmate, Ninja, had raised the issue with Ayer in a text message but that “u said nothin like a scared lil bitch.” Visser and Ninja - real names Anri du Toit and Watkin Tudor Jones - rose to fame after popularizing the Afrikaans “Zef” counter-culture through three rap-rave albums. They also starred in Neill Blomkamp’s 2015 sci-fi feature “Chappie,” which made over $100 million worldwide, alongside Sigourney Weaver and Hugh Jackman.
