Aaron Carter criticized for 'racist' post described as 'ignorance at its finest'
Singer Aaron Carter has been criticized by social media users this week for making a 'racist' video and posting it to Instagram.
The offensive video shows Carter making a telephone order for Chinese food, putting on an exaggerated Chinese accent while he does so.
Carter states: "A plain lo mein, orange chicken, sesame chicken. Large order. Crab rangoon two order. General Tso’s chicken, pork fried rice."
The musician captioned the post: "When your friends can't order Chinese food chicken in NYC AND you have to SHOW THEM YOURE cultural status #satire [sic]"

However, a number of people took to the comments to express their disappointment with the video. For instance, one person wrote: "Aaron Carter you need help. Serious help." Meanwhile, someone else added: "That’s not even any language you’re just mocking his accent you racist fool 😂😂😂"
The musician later took to Instagram live to post a foul-mouthed rebuttal to his detractors, threatening to block followers who had criticized the footage of him making the order.
Carter stated: "I ordered Chinese food last night and nobody could talk to the guy and order the food, so I was like 'watch, I got this and I ordered the sh*t in, like, five minutes."
Check out Carter's angered response in the video below (Warning: Strong Language):
He continued: "'Racist b*tch?' f*ck you, f*ck you b*tch. Tell me how I’m a racist, please. How the f*ck am I racist? Because I’m cultured, and I know how to speak to people? People are so sensitive, you ever heard of satire humor? 'Oh my god, he’s so racist, he hates Chinese people.' Really, why am I ordering Chinese food then?"
The troubled performer has previously claimed to be "scared for his life" after revealing he has had a stalker for the last two years.
