Lil Pump is causing some trouble! The rapper recently released a tease of a record he’s working on called, “Butterfly Doors.” There’s a line in the song that has caused some backlash, which consists of, “Butterfly door, they call me Yao Ming cause my eyes real low, ching chong.”


Lots of people have perceived this line as a mocking the Asian community. To make matters worse, in the lip-syncing video, the rapper made a racist gesture where he pulled the corner of his eyes to make them slanted. This act is seen as extremely offensive.

Chinese hip-hop rappers have responded! Numerous Chinese rappers have released diss tracks targeting the “Gucci Gang” rapper. The notable Chinese hip-hop group, CD Rev, released a track “F**k Lil Pump.” In this track, there’s a line targeting Pump, which consists of, “The fact is you and white racists the same/Respect yourself, you’ve suffered the pain/ you don’t know anything ‘bout the history/ ‘Cause you a nation of immigrants, and if you really won’t take it serious, check it out on those Indians.”

One of the members of CD Rev, Li Yijie, AKA Pissy, explained in an interview how disrespectful Pump’s track was. Pissy explained in the interview, “My first reaction was anger. Not only were the lyrics insulting, he made the face gesture, the whole package. It means that he understood what it meant – understood that it is discriminatory language. It’s quite irresponsible.”
