(AllHipHop News) "Crazy Rich Asians" star Awkwafina has reportedly slammed Lil Pump in a now-deleted Twitter message over his use of a derogatory term in his new song "Butterfly Doors."
Pump, real name Gazzy Garcia, released a preview of the song on Instagram and in the video on the social media site, the rapper is seen pulling at the edges of his eyes.
"They call me Yao Ming 'cause my eyes real low," he spits, referencing the retired basketball player, before he is heard uttering, "Ching chong."
After posting the promo, rapper/actress Awkwafina took to social media to express her disgust over his lyrics in a tweet that has since been deleted.
"Always nice to hear a new song with a Ching Chong adlib," she wrote on Twitter at the time. "Guess it's better than 'eyes chink' like some other verses I've heard. But can we at least think of some more creative racist epithets? @lilpump."
Lil Pump has yet to comment on the controversy, but he is no stranger to negative headlines, following his arrest for disorderly conduct on Thursday, after he and a member of his entourage were kicked off a flight in Miami, Florida.
[The rapper had already boarded the Los Angeles-bound plane at Miami International Airport, but he was approached after the Transportation Security Administration baggage handlers noticed a strong smell of marijuana emanating from a bag bearing Pump's legal last name.(
Garcia was asked if he was carrying any drugs by the pilot and he insisted he wasn't, but the exchange became heated.
He was kicked off the flight and met with police. The situation continued to escalate, landing him in custody for disorderly conduct, but there were no illegal substances found in his bag.
