Billie Eilish defends herself against racist allegations, apologizes to Asian community for old video

15:31, June 23

American pop singer Billie Eilish has defended herself against racist allegations on her Instagram, apologizing to Asians for mocking their accent.

A video of Eilish performing Tyler the Creator’s song “Fish” on TikTok and using the word ‘chink’ in the song (in English, the word ‘chink’ is a nickname that offends Asians). Besides that, Eilish’s fans thought the singer was mocking the Asian accent.

“There’s a video edit going around of me when I was 13 or 14 where I mouthed a word from a song that at the time I didn’t know was a derogatory term used against members of the Asian community. This song was the only time I’d ever heard that word as it was never used around me by anyone in my famly. Regardless of my ignorance and age at the time, nothing excuses the fact that it was hurtful, and for that I am sorry,” Eilish wrote, adding the following:

“I have always worked hard to use my platform to fight for inclusion, kindness, tolerance, equity and equality. We all need to continue having conversations, listening and learning. I hear you and I love you.”
