Fans expressed their anger.

Honey G is facing more controversy after being wrongly accused of using the ‘n word’ during her latest live performance on The X Factor. 

Some X Factor viewers unfairly branded the ‘rapper’ as racist, claiming she used the slur while performing Kriss Kross’ 1993 classic ‘Jump’ over the weekend. 

Watch the performance below:

The incident is said to have occurred around the 50 second mark. 

Despite some fans claiming Honey G used the word – they clearly misheard the lyrics as it doesn’t actually feature in the song at all! 

“Honey G did not use any offensive language,” an X Factor spokesperson told Mirror Online.

“She sang the correct lyrics and said 'kicking the flavor that makes you wanna jump'."

Meanwhile, Honey G has faced criticism from fans and artists alike during her time on The X Factor.

Most recently, Lily Allen claimed her act was offensive, while John Legend appeared to throw shade at her while on The X Factor live show.
