When Lil Pump initially teased a snippet of what would go on to be “Butterfly Doors” last month, the South Florida rapper faced backlash from the music community and alienated much of his Asian fanbase with multiple racial slurs in the song. A few weeks later, Pump returned with the official “Butterfly Doors” visual, featuring a few tweaks to potentially defuse his detractors.
The updated version of the track finds Pump flexing in front of an exotic fleet of sports cars and censors his use of former Houston Rockets center Yao Ming, while removing him saying “ching chong” altogether. “They call me… ‘cause my eyes real low,” the 18-year-old now raps throughout the CBMIX-produced tune. During the rest of the clip, Pump dances around surrounded by a plethora of lightly dressed women at his side, as neon lights fill the makeshift garage.
Following the adverse reaction to him previewing the song, Pump issued an apology. “I seen the whole thing going on on the internet and all that. I came here to tell you from my part that I’m sorry and I apologize for posting that. It was not my intentions to hurt nobody or do none of that, deadass. I got Asian homies, you know,” he explained. “I fuck with everybody and I got nothing against nobody. It’s all love.”
