In the clip, Schnapp raps over the line, “Wonder if I can say the N-word,” before Brown repeats the term in full.

The clip went viral online, with people spreading the hashtag “#NoahSchnappIsOverParty.”

Schnapp took to Instagram Tuesday night to address the controversy, explaining that when he was rapping along to the song he replaced the N-word with the word “neighbour.”

“I would truly never say the N-word and I’m not the type of person,” he wrote. “I genuinely have never used that word in my life. Using the word ‘neighbour’ in that song was just something my camp friends and I did.

The young actor apologized for using the replacement word, though, writing, “It is not my place to use one and I should [have] kept my mouth shut. I understand why it is found offensive and I am so sorry.”
