Former N-Dubz member, Dappy, has prompted a huge backlash online after tweeting some curious statements about the N-word.

The singer uses the word in a new song released yesterday (Monday 28 December) called 'Eros Apollo'.

The tweet has since been deleted but not before a host of people took him to town for his statement, sparking a lively debate about what constitutes racism.

Dappy - real name Costadinos Contostavlos - is of Greek Cypriot descent.

The singer later posted an apology on his Instagram account.

By this point many were making a comparison between Dappy and Rachel Dolezal, the former president of the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People (NAACP), who resigned amid allegations she had “disguised” herself as a black woman.

She was publicly outed as a white woman by her own family.

The whole saga appears to have come as quite a shock to him when awoke on Tuesday morning.
