American singer-songwriter Billie Eilish has come under fire yet again after alleged racist videos from the past resurfaced online. The latest video comes days after boyfriend Matthew Tyler Vorce was called out for old racist and homophobic comments.

In the new video shared by a TikTok user, Billie Eilish is caught saying a racial slur, “c***k,” against Chinese people. The singer has also allegedly mocked Asian accents in the same video.

In a second video shared by the user, Billie Eilish's brother Finneas allegedly calls her out for using a “blaccent” or African American English accent.

A few days ago, the 19-year-old singer got embroiled in another controversy against the LGBTQ+ community. Billie Eilish was accused for “queerbaiting” her viewers in the music video of her latest song, “Lost Cause.”
