“I don’t know if you know this about me, but I’m the type of guy who likes to make statements. I spoke out against another artist who represented a terrorist group in Sri Lanka in 2008. I did a video, and that video went viral. It had over a million views overnight, and then I had CNN and all these people calling me. About five hours later, everything of mine was hacked….My website was hacked, my e-mail was hacked… I was getting death threats on my phone in three different languages. It wasn’t long before the Secretary of Defense (of Sri Lanka) called me, asking to meet in Sri Lanka.” – DeLon (Full Interview in Video above)
