M.I.A. and Bill Maher

Tamil refugee M.I.A. brought attention to the plight of her people in Sri Lanka on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.” The “Paper Planes” rapper got emotional at one point when speaking about the horrific experiences she endured while leaving her country.

“This is the first human catastrophe that’s happened since the Obama time,” she said. “We kind of have to pay attention to what’s going on and talk about why the American public hasn’t been able to get the right information.”
