Noah Schnapp Apologizes for Seemingly Singing N-Word in Leaked Video
Noah Schnapp has apologized for seemingly singing the N-word in a newly leaked video.
The Stranger Things star trended on Twitter on Tuesday (August 25) after a video of him singing along to Lil Dicky and Chris Brown’s “Freaky Friday" leaked.
The lyrics to the song include the racial slur numerous times throughout the track. "Wait, can I really say the n-word? What up, my n---a, what up my n---a?" Schnapp allegedly sang along in the video.
Soon after #NoahSchnappIsOverParty became a trending topic on social media, the 15-year-old actor addressed the video in an Instagram Story.��Schnapp explained that the video was from last summer and claimed that he used the word "neighbor" instead of the actual racial slur.
“I would truly never say the N-word and I'm not the type of person [to do so],” he wrote. “I genuinely have never used that word in my life. Using the word 'neighbor' in that song was just something my camp friends and I did.”
“I hope you all understand I could never even think about doing that,” he continued. “My friends also would never post a video, or support me, if I was saying that slur without hesitation.”
"I apologize for using a replacement word. It is not my place to use one and I should [have] kept my mouth shut. I understand why it is found offensive and I am so sorry," Schnapp concluded.
