Noah Schnapp is issuing an apology.
A video from 2019 recently resurfaced of the 15-year-old Stranger Things actor singing along to “Freaky Friday” by Lil Dicky and Chris Brown.
Noah says that in the video it appears he was saying the n-word, but he actually replaced it with “neighbor.”
“hi guys. recently a video from last summer has gotten out of me dancing and singing a song while singing the word ‘neighbor’ over the n word,” Noah said in a statement shared to his Instagram story.
“i would truly never say the n word and i’m not the type of person. 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,” he continued. “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. i understand why it is found offensive and i am so sorry,” Noah concluded.
