The 'Gucci Gang' rapper has come under fire after previewing his new song 'Butterfly Doors' on Twitter. Pump is being accused of mocking asians after using a racial slur and hand gesture.
Lil Pump is being accused of racism after releasing a preview of his new song 'Butterfly Doors'.
The 18-year-old rapper took to Twitter to release a snippet of the track, which features the lyric, "Smoking on dope, they call me Yao Ming 'cause my eyes real low! (Ching chong!)"
The video also shows Pump making an offensive gesture by pulling the sides of his eyes to make them appear 'slanted', and, unsurprisingly, people were left unimpressed.
"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," wrote one fan.
"i was gonna say this could be a banger until i heard the ching chong yikes," wrote another. Pump is yet to respond to the backlash for using racial epithets.

Earlier this month, the rapper was forced to cancel a show in Copenhagen, Denmark following an altercation with the police and taunting police officers.
Pump was recently kicked off a flight after officials thought the rapper had drugs in his bag, before he and his team were arrested after they allegedly became "disorderly during the argument with TSA agents."
