Lil Pump apologized on Monday (Dec. 24) for using an anti-Asian slur in a recent video. Saying he’d seen what people said online about the since-deleted video — a promo for the tune “Butterfly Doors” in which he pulled his eyes back and ad-libbed “ching chong” while rapping about retired NBA player Yao Ming — a contrite-looking Pump said in the video that “I came here to tell you for my part that I’m sorry and I apologize for posting that.”
The rapper said it was “not my intention to hurt nobody or do none of that… I got Asian homies. I fuck with everybody. I ain’t got nothing against nobody It’s all love.” The apology post had racked up more than 2.1 million views at press time.
