"Stop excusing and justifying the actions of pea-sized brain rappers."

Lil Pump just dropped a teaser for a track which makes offensive references to Asian culture and the internet is dragging him. The Gucci Gang rapper – who is of Columbian heritage – posted a snippet of his new song "Butterfly Doors" on Instagram, which saw him dancing and making offensive gestures.

Lil Pump – born Gazzy Garcia – then mimes to the lyrics: "They call me Yao Ming because my eyes real low," before ad-libbing the phrase "ching chong". And just to make the song a little more problematic he drops the N-word a few times too.

Needless to say, the comment section was an absolute mess. Lil Pump was called out by Crazy Rich Asian's actress Awkwafina and rapper China Mac, while Asian Instagram users flooded his posts with comments and "fuck Lil Pump" pages were even set up dedicated to trolling the 18-year-old rapper.

Meanwhile on Chinese social media site Weibo, thousands of users posted screengrabs to prove they have reported Lil Pump for inappropriate content on Twitter and Instagram.

Lil Pump hasn't apologised yet or taken the videos down and people are understandably fuming.

It’s been a bad year for the controversial lyricist. Earlier this month, Lil Pump was arrested in Denmark after giving police officers the middle-finger and was forced to cancel a show in Finland. He claims he's also expected to do a couple of months in prison for violating the terms of his probation.

No more problematic rappers in 2019, please.
