After getting clowned by some for dressing up like a woman in the video for YG's song "Run," Tyga has once again raised eyebrows after being in newly released visuals.

This time, it's over the video for his song "Ay Caramba," which some believe perpetuates Mexican stereotypes, including American Cholo host Gill.

So, the two men sat down on Power 106, where Tyga apologized.

"When I dropped the video, I wasn’t in L.A. I was in Europe,” said Tyga. “Then I started seeing a lot of people offended by it and I was kind of confused, so that’s why I didn’t respond. I took time ... I didn’t comment on anything, I didn’t like any posts. I kind of like tried to do my research a little bit. I tried to ask a lot of my friends that I grew up with that were Mexican."

"I want to apologize to the Mexican community and my fans that are Mexican," he continued. "I have a lot of Latin fans that are Puerto Rican or Dominican that probably weren’t offended by this video. But my Mexican fans in L.A., there definitely was some that were offended."
