Billie Eilish has come under fire for allegedly saying “ch*nk” and using a mock Asian accent in a series of clips posted on TikTok this week.

The allegation: TikTok user @lcxvy compiled the undated clips and captioned the allegedly problematic parts on Monday.

  • In one of them, Eilish can be heard seemingly saying the word “ch*nk.”

  • Another shows the 19-year-old singer speaking unintelligibly and in what sounded like a mock Asian accent.

  • User @lcxvy also included a clip in which Eilish’s brother, Finneas, allegedly calls her out for “talking with a blaccent.”

What people are saying: As of this writing, the TikTok video — which was also reposted on Twitter — has garnered nearly one million views and drawn mixed reactions from users.

  • Some accused Eilish of being racist and demanded an apology.

  • Others came to the singer’s defense, claiming she was only 14 in the clips compiled and wondered if it was a tic from her Tourettes syndrome.

  • Meanwhile, others pointed out that the clips lacked context and urged Eilish to address the accusations.
