Wiz Khalifa criticized for the racist lyrics against Koreans in his new song 'Hot Now'

Wiz Khalifa is under fire for racism. 

On July 12, Wiz Khalifa released the new album 'Rolling Papers 2'  including a total of 25 tracks. One of the new songs titled "Hot Now" is gaining criticism, especially by the Korean audience, for a racist line in the lyrics. 

The problematic line states, "Smoke got my eyes lookin' Korean." 

At the 0:49 mark:

Many netizens are displeased with the line that makes fun of Korean eyes and fired criticism against the rapper. 

Comments stated, "They say don't be racist to black people but they're racist themselves", "Wow I'm no longer listening to his music", "Racist", "You think you're cool being racist?," "It's ok to be racist to Asians but if you say the N word, you'll be put to death," "After the stuff he pulled at MAMA, he's never invited again."

Back in December 2016, Wiz Khalifa and Taeyeon were supposed to perform together at '2016 MAMA' but due to some issues ended up performing separately.
