Lil Pump previewed a song called “Butterfly Doors” earlier this month and immediately faced controversy over it.

In the video he shared, Pump at one point rapped the lyric, “Butterfly door, they call me Yao Ming cause my eyes real low, ching chong,” while stretching his eyelids.
On Wednesday, Lil Pump shared an apology video, saying, “It was not my intention to hurt nobody,” adding, “I’ve got Asian homies,” and that “I’ve got nothing against nobody, it’s all love.”

Many were offended when Lil Pump originally posted the video, calling the rapper out for racism against Asians.
“Crazy Rich Asians” star Awkwafina tweeted, calling out Lil Pump on Monday evening: “Always nice to hear a new song with a Ching Chong adlib. Guess it’s better than “eyes chink” like some other verses I’ve heard. But can we at least think of some more creative racist epithets?”
Pump has yet to respond to the controversy.
