Lil Pump apologizes for using racial slur

“I got Asian homies, you know. I fuck with everybody.”

December 25, 2018

Lil Pump issued an apology on Monday for using an anti-Asian slur and gesture in a since-deleted video last week. “I got Asian homes, you know. I fuck with everybody and I don't got nothing against nobody,” Pump said in a new Instagram post before wishing everyone a happy holiday.

The slur came last week while the South Florida rapper was teasing a new single apparently titled "Butterfly Doors." While dancing to the track, Pump sang the lyrics, "they call me Yao Ming cause my eyes real low," while pulling back his eyes to mimic the epicanthic fold which is common among people of the Asiatic descent.

A number of Chinese rappers also uploaded diss tracks in response to Pump's lyrics last week.
