“I am appalled and embarrassed and want to barf that I ever mouthed along to that word.”
Billie Eilish has apologized after a video surfaced of her apparently mouthing along to a song as an anti-Asian racial slur is used. The singer posted a statement on her Instagram account addressing the edited compilation of videos, which was widely circulated on TikTok earlier this month. Eilish says the videos in question were recorded when she was 13 or 14 years old. In one clip, Eilish mouthed the word “chink” — which she claims she didn’t know was a slur at the time — and in another video she apparently imitated an accent.
Seems like sooner or later, somebody always digs up some racist bullshit you did in your young past — whether you knew it was racist or not. It’s like a twisted celebrity rite of passage.
