WARNING EXPLICIT LANGUAGE IN THE LYRICS IN THIS ARTICLE AND VIDEO
Hasbro's new comic con-style event is intended to be family-friendly, but the special guest performer Flo Rida - who is mainstream now - had in his career promoted drug dealing in songs that are highly misogynistic, violent, and weave the "N-Word" into the lyrics.
Hasbro's HASCON says the event is family-friendly. "From fan favorites to family fun, grown ups and kids alike are invited to celebrate the power of play at this first-of-its-kind "con"!"
The event offers small children the opportunity to try out for a Hasbro commercial, "AUDITION! Youths ages 3-15 can audition to potentially appear in a Hasbro TV commercial or piece of entertainment!"
The three day-event takes place at the Providence Convention Center.
