Harlem’s Joe Budden, Checked For Anti-Sikh Photo

joebuddenJoe Budden, Harlem born rapper and member of the hip hop group Slaughterhouse, is receiving some social media attention, and it’s not because of his music.

On Friday, Twitter user Fateh Singh (@FatedDOE) posted a photo he came across on Budden’s Instagram account depicting a man wearing a turban and standing in an airport security line. Budden’s accompanying caption read, “Not on my watch Homeboy!”

The Redditor offered an apology, saying, “Making fun of people is funny to some but incredibly degrading to the people you’re making fun of. It was an incredibly rude, judgmental, and ignorant thing to post.”

Budden did, however, remove the post from his Instagram account.

The photo may be gone, but it appears the damage has been done (source).
