‘Stranger Things’ Star Noah Schnapp Denies Saying The N-Word In A Viral Video

The young actor Noah Schnapp, portraying ‘Will Byers’ in the Netflix series ‘Stranger Things’ denied all the allegations that he said the n-word multiple times in a viral video while singing along to Lil Dicky’s ‘Freaky Friday (feat. Chris Brown).’ Schapp posted a message to Instagram Stories intending to reject the claims and apologizing for his offensive action.

The 15-year-old actor, who won a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, began his statement by stating that he did not use the n-word in the video:

“Recently a video from last summer has gotten out of me dancing and singing a song while singing the word ‘neighbor.’ I would never truly say the n-word and I’m not the type of person. I genuinely have never used that word in my life. Using the word ‘neighbor’ in that song was just something that my camp friends and I did.”

After claimed that the actual word was ‘neighbor,’ Schnapp stated regarding the video that was posted by one of Schnapp’s friends:

“I hope you all understand I could never even think about doing that. My friends also would never post a video, or support me, if I was saying that slur without hesitation.”

Even though he defended himself about not saying the n-word never ever, Schnapp apologized for the video anyhow:

“I apologize for using a replacement word. It is not my place to use one and I should have kept my mouth shut. I understand why it is found offensive and I am so sorry.”
