Joe Budden has apologized for an Instagram post which found him stereotyping a Sikh man.
Joe Budden posted an image to Instagram yesterday which gained him a lot of negative attention. The Slaughterhouse rapper put up an image of a Sikh man-- seemingly going through customs at the airport --with the caption, “Not on my watch Homeboy!”, suggesting the man was a terrorist.
Obviously, Twitter exploded following the post, with one twitter user, Fateh Singh reposting the image and calling it “racism and ignorance at its finest.”
The post received over a thousand retweets, and Budden removed his image from Instagram within 30 minutes.
The rapper later offered an apology for the post via Twitter, saying, "I apologize to all Sikhs and any1 i offended w my tasteless & stereotypical post yesterday, it was ignorant & in bad judgement. Never again. Hopefully ppl can find it in their hearts to forgive me, my God is a forgiving 1… today is a new day, here’s to moving forward !"
