Jack Harlow has come in for some criticism over his behaviour at a racing event over the weekend.
The rapper was in attendance at the Kentucky Derby on Sunday (7 May), but with it being a pretty muddy affair, he obviously didn't want to ruin his no doubt expensive shoes.
So rather than trudging through the dirt, he had two large men pick him up and carry him across the field.
Sharing the moment to its social media channels, the Kentucky Derby wrote: "Gotta keep the kicks clean for Riders Up, @jackharlow."
However, many who have since seen the clip have slammed Harlow for having two Black men carry him simply to avoid getting his shoes mucky.
Writing on TikTok, one user said: "This set us back a few years."
Another chipped in: "Optics bro optics."
"The second hand embarrassment is real," put a third.
While another added: "You've got to be kidding me."
But not everyone was so quick to judge the singer.
A lot of his fans said they didn't see the problem and thought everyone involved seemed to see the funny side of it.
"How are people upset over this it’s funny?" asked one.
Another put: "The dudes are laughing he’s laughing... just seems like a funny bit that they carried out. Y'all need to chill and look at some context clues."
UNILAD has contacted Jack Harlow's representatives for a comment.
This comes after he revealed what Dua Lipa said to him after he played the British singer the song he wrote about her.
The song is featured on his new album Come Home The Kids Miss You, which dropped on Friday (6 May).
Harlow appeared as a guest on The Breakfast Club podcast where he spoke about reaching out to the star in private.
He said: "I wanted to get her blessing, so I FaceTimed her and played it for her because I didn’t want her to be blindsided by that or feel like creeped out or anything.
"If she had said, ‘Yo, I hate it. I don’t want it to come out,’ it wouldn’t have come out."
However, it was her reaction what is quite possibly the most British reply ever.
Harlow added: "She was like, ‘Oh, I mean it’s not my song. I suppose it’s OK.’
"She was just kinda thrown off and she just kinda let it go."
As awks as the exchange might have sounded, the rapper insists the two artists are 'less awkward' now.
He explained: "We’re good. We’ll see how the record does. I think when the song comes out, she’ll grow to appreciate it even more."
