“Gucci Gang” rapper Lil Pump is currently receiving a lot of backlash from the Asian community – Chinese especially – for using mocking Asian in his new song.
The 18-year-old Colombian-American rapper has unveiled the preview of his latest song “Butterfly Doors” on Instagram. The video consists some racists gestures and lyrics.
In one part of the song, the lyrics read, “Smoking on dope, they call me Yao Ming ’cause my eyes real low! (Ching Chong!)” To make matters worse, during this part, Lil Pump even pulls the sides of his eyes to make them appear “slanted”.
Many people are angered by his action and demanded for an apology. Some even asked the rapper to take down the video. “Crazy Rich Asian” star Awkwafina also voiced out her opinions on the song.
@lilpump I was your one of Chinese fans. When I heard you R a racist and said ching chong, I'm so so DISPPOINTED. You will be unforgivable.

“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,” she wrote on Twitter. “But can we at least think of some more creative racist epithets?
Lil Pump has yet to respond to the controversial post, nor has he removed it from his social media accounts.
