Holidays are a time to give, receive and in some cases excuse offensive offensive text. On Christmas Day, Lil Pump and 21 Savage – in completely separate events – both returned to their last songs. Unfortunately, in expressing remorse for their racist texts, it became clear that both rappers would use a similar tactic – referring to their proximity to each marginalized group – to refrain from the ignorant comments.
In early December, Lil Pump launched a teaser of its new song "Butterfly Doors" on TwitterYao Ming: "Smokin & # 39; on his dope (damn) eyes. Nine days later, after sitting back, Pump sent an apology on Instagram.
"I saw the whole thing online and all that," Pump said. "I came here to tell you from my side I'm sorry and I'm sorry to post it. It wasn't my intention to hurt anyone or do anything about it, deadass. I have Asian homies, you know. everyone, and I have nothing against anyone. It's all love. "
21 Savage similarly apologized for their controversial texts on "asmr:" "We've got the Jewish money, everything is Kosher (On God)" from his latest album, I am> I was. "The Jewish people I know are very wise with money," 21 Savage posted to Twitter. "So I said we had received Jewish money. I never thought anyone would take it. I'm sorry I insulted everyone, never my intention, I love all people."
The lyrics came into the popular consciousness when LeBron James cited them on Instagram. James later apologized and said, "It was certainly not the intention to obviously harm anyone."
