“Jet ski” – better known as Lil Pump – may have slid right into a backlash recently over some racial epithets found in his song, ‘Butterfly Doors,’ but now he claims he’s learned the error of his ways.

The video above was uploaded as a preview ahead of the release of Pump’s newest single, ‘Butterfly Doors.’ In one part of the song, he raps: “Smoking on dope, they call me Yao Ming ’cause my eyes real low! (Ching chong!)”
To make matters worse, Pump’s added visual effect – him pulling the sides of his eyes to make them appear “slanted” – only sent many into a further outrage. Once he caught wind of the backlash, he took to Instagram on Tuesday (December 25) to offer an apology:

“I came here to tell you guys that I seen the whole thing going on on the internet and all that,” he said. “I came here to tell you that for my part, I’m sorry and I apologize for posting that. It was not my intentions to hurt nobody or do none of that, dead ass, ’cause I got Asian homies. You know, I fuck with everybody, ain’t got nothing against nobody.”
