The 19-year-old singer denied that she intended to make fun of Asians.
After the release of the singer’s new music video for the song Lost Cause, Billie was subjected to a flood of criticism due to the use of allusions to the LGBT movement in the video. Subscribers were outraged that Eilish is not a representative of this society, but at the expense of homosexuality, she decided to increase the views of the clip.
Then a video was found on the Network where Billy tries to mimic the representatives of the Asian race. Eilish calls them the word chinks, which is derogatory to the Asian population. Netizens again attacked the singer and began to accuse her of racism.
“Bullying Asians is disgusting,” writes one commenter.
19-year-old Billie made her public apology in the story Instagram. The girl said that she did not want to offend the Asians. She writes that in the provocative video she is 13-14 years old, and at that time the singer did not know the meaning of the words that she utters to Asians. She also points out that it was just pampering.
“I have never parodied people, language, accent, or culture. It really hurts me that I am now being labeled as hurting people,” Billie writes.
