Canadian-American actor Noah Schnapp has been at the receiving end for singing N-word to Lil Dicky and Chris Brown’s “Freaky Friday” while on the road with his friends. The video of Noah Schnapp singing N-Word has gone viral across on all social media platforms.
The ‘Stranger Things’ star is receiving backlash after a leaked video showcasing him screaming the N-word confidently as he enjoyed a road trip with his friends.
The lyrics go: “Wait, can I really say the n-word? What up, my n***a, what up, my n***a?” he sang his heart out, bouncing his head up and down. “Bigs up, my n***a, we up, my n***a. You p***y a**, n****s, man, f**k y’all n****s. ‘Cause I’m that n***a, n***a, n***a.”
As soon as the video leaked on the internet, Noah promptly apologized for his actions and claimed that video was shot last year and he was actually singing “neighbor” over the N-word.
“I would truly never say the N-word and I’m not the type of person,” Noah wrote.
“I genuinely have never used that word in my like. Using the word ‘neighbor’ in that song was just something my camp friends and I did,” he added.
He further said, “I hope you all understand I could never even think about doing that. 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 of kept my mouth shut,” Noah said. “I understand why it is found offensive and I am so sorry.”
Meanwhile, there are people who are calling him a liar as they pointed out at the time when Noah said, “I do not support racism or homophobia. I have never said the N word and I pride myself on that.”
A user on social media said, “LOOOOOL fake woke,” while someone else wrote, “ew the fact that he would even pride himself in it even if it were true…”
This is not the first time, Noah was also accused of using the racial slur in the past as well.
