What is Ay Caramba?

Ay Caramba, in its most literal terms, means to surprise, in itself, it was completely normal, even the lyrics were not something that offended them, but the video that accompanied the music was not done properly, as claimed by the section of the Mexican American Community, it was the execution of the music video that seems to have hurt the sentiments, this was the first time when Tyga had decided to go outside the box and create a song based off the culture of the Mexican people, however the song and its video wasn’t something the audience welcomed with all smiles, the singer had faced a lot of backlashes.
