Fans took to social media to express their outrage over Maroon 5's "disturbing" new music video where Adam Levine and wife Behati Prinsloo are covered in blood and having sex.
The gory video for the band's song "Animals" released Monday stars Levine who plays a butcher who stalks Prinsloo's character, and fantasizes about having sex with her in a meat locker.
Many believed the video was "disturbing" and promoted violence against women.
@gogreen18 PLEASE make a video speaking out against Maroon 5's disturbing new song Animals. It promotes rape & murder culture against women.

Anyone ganna acknowledge the fact that Maroon 5's - Animal is basically the psychosis of a stalker?

Maroon 5's new mv IS disgusting. You'd change your mind if it were a non attractive male stalker bathing in blood with an attractive female.

"We're not really sure why Maroon 5 had to take this video to the disturbing, stalker place they did...-

I doubt there's anything more disturbing than @maroon5 's "Animals"? What's with the serial killer like stalking and the carcass hugging

In the video, an unaware Prinsloo is stalked by Levine who secretly photographs her and keeps the pictures hidden away in his meat locker.
As his obsession grows, Levine eventually confronts Prinsloo at a club and fantasizes about spending the night with her covered in animal blood.
"Maybe you think that you can hide/ I can smell your scent for miles/ Just like animals," Levine sings in one of the creepier moments in the song.
