Joe Budden Apologizes For Instagram Post Stereotyping Sikh Man

The rapper took to Twitter to apologize for the original post: "I apologize to all Sikhs and any1 i offended w my tasteless & stereotypical post yesterday."

After being called out by a Twitter user for a post he made on Friday, Slaughterhouse emcee Joe Budden took to the platform yesterday to apologize for a recent and since-deleted Instagram post of a man wearing a turban in an airport security line with the caption “Not on my watch Homeboy!” attached.

On Friday (March 28), a Twitter user by the name Fateh Singh reposted Joe Budden’s Instagram post to Twitter with attached commentary calling it “racism and ignorance at its finest.”

Singh’s Tweet, which has now been retweeted more than a thousand times, inspired dozens of other users to criticize the rapper for his comments. One user, Jaskaran Dhanoa, engaged with Budden directly, asking him to “admit [his] fault and apologize.”

Yesterday, Budden apologized officially with a pair of Tweets referencing his own post as “stereotypical” and “in bad judgement.”
