Lil Pump has released a track he had to previously apologise for back in December. When Pump teased “Butterfly Doors” late last year it featured racist lyrics which prompted backlash against the rapper.

Now “Butterfly Doors” has been officially released without the racist lyrics. The original version had the line “They call me Yao Ming ‘cause my eyes real low, ching chong.” Now the new version mutes both “Yao Ming” and “ching chong” in the track, making the line “They call me… ’cause my eyes real low.”

Whilst it might not make much sense now (let’s be honest it never really did), at least the lyrics aren’t racist anymore. Check out the video for “Butterfly Doors” below.

The rappers apology for the original lyrics was posted to his Instagram where he said “I seen the whole thing going on on the internet and all that. I came here to tell you from my part that I’m sorry and I apologize for posting that. It was not my intentions to hurt nobody or do none of that. … I got Asian homies, you know. I fuck with everybody and I got nothing against nobody. It’s all love.”

Lil Pump was set to appear at FOMO Festival which kicks off today in Brisbane, but pulled out “due to recent arrests and a failure to comply with Australian work visa application requirements”. Oh well.
