According to a report from Page Six, Lil’ Pump found out recently that snakes aren’t always easy to deal with. The 19-year-old rapper, who was in the middle of a video shoot for an upcoming music video this Thursday, revealed on his social media account that he was bitten by a snake on set.
Lil’ Pump stated in his IG video that he just got “bit by a snake,” and went on to say he couldn’t let a snake bite him again. The rapper added, “I hope I don’t die,” in all capital letters. In the video, one can see someone handing the snake to the rapper and when he reaches for it and picks it up, it wraps around his hand and bites him.
“Look at my hand bro,” the rapper says in the video, stating, “that n*gga bit the f*ck out of me.” Near the end of the video, another person goes to pick up the snake, who appears to be its handler, however, the snake subsequently lunges at the other person.
At the moment, it’s not clear if the “Gucci Gang” rapper had to go to the Emergency Room, nor whether or not the bite was as bad as he made it out to be. As most know, this wouldn’t be the first time the rapper found himself in trouble.
Near the beginning of the year, Lil’ Pump had to apologize publicly on social media for his music video in which he made reference to Asian slurs. Back in December of 2018, Lil’ Pump released a music video in which he made a racially charged gesture toward Asian people.
In the video, the rapper pulls his eyes apart to make them appear Asian, which made him the target of Asian-Americans and even Chinese rappers. Moreover, one of the lyrics of the track features him stating, “They call me Yao Ming ’cause my eyes real low (ching chong).”
Later on, and as it was noted above, the “Gucci Gang” rapper released a video on social media where he apologized to all of those he offended.
