Summer Walker is completely Over It, just like her chart-topping debut album.

The “Playing Games” singer, who’s known to spark conversation about various topics on social media, has now deleted all posts on her Instagram account after being called a “racist” for re-posting a viral video, regarding the COVID-19 coronavirus.

According to the gossip site Hollywood Unlocked, Walker was accused of “’spreading racist anti-Asian rhetoric’ for posting a video which allegedly showed people in China intentionally spreading the coronavirus.’

The now-deleted video, which was viewed at least 141,000 times, included people of Asian descent with the headline, “People in China Seen Spreading The Coronavirus to The Public.”  Walker captioned the video, “That’s some trifling nasty a** s****.” When a fan alerted her that the video was “fake news” and from two years ago, Walker responded, “and they trifling & nasty af too so what’s your point?”

Walker than responded to the ensuing backlash with a post on her Instagram story. “Lol People so dumb, talking about I’m racist and that video was from a long time ago,” she wrote.  “It don’t matter if it was from 20 years ago, bottom line that S***nasty & IDGAF if a black white yellow or green person did that s***, it’s stil nasty…period…why I an here about none of this ‘xenophobic s*** when MF’s had Ebola? lol” 

Walker then appeared to have moved on from the topic, posting screenshots of her boyfriend and producer London on the Track and his new car. Hours later, she added, “Lmao I literally don’t give a f*** anymore this is app. It’s not that serious…For my lable Ima delete all this s***..Goodnight.”
