Rapper Joe Budden is asking for forgiveness after posting a picture on Instagram of a Sikh man wearing a turban at an airport security checkpoint.
According to HiphopDX.com, attached to the picture -- which has since been removed -- was the caption "Not on my watch Homeboy."
After a social media backlash, Budden took to Twitter and apologized to "all Sikhs" as well as anyone else who was offended by his "tasteless & stereotypical post."
He also called it "ignorant & in bad judgement." After asking for forgiveness, he wrote "here's to moving forward."
