Lil Pump Apologizes to Asian Community for Offending With His Lyrics
Lil Pump sees the error in his ways. Following backlash over racial epithets he used in a song preview last week that angered many in the Asian community, Jet Ski is offering his apologies.
On Tuesday (Dec. 25), the South Florida rapper addressed the issue with his fans on social media. Hopping on Instagram, he issued what seems to be a sincere apology.
"I came here to tell you guys that I seen the whole thing going on on the internet and all that," she started. "I came here to tell you that for my part, I'm sorry and I apologize for posting that. It was not my intentions to hurt nobody or do none of that, dead ass, 'cause I got Asian homies. You know, I fuck with everybody, ain't got nothing against nobody."
Pump was initially catching hell for posting a video preview of a song that was offensive to the Asian community. "Smoking on dope, they call me Yao Ming 'cause my eyes real low! (Ching chong!)," he rapped, while making things worse by pulling the sides of his eyes to make them slanted.
This led to the "Drug Addicts" rhymer being called out on social media and dissed by Chinese rappers CD Rev who released a diss track entitled "FXXX Lil Pump."
