After receiving various comments on the video about him faking an American accent, Emtee fired back calling it a "hop hop" accent.

“I have something to say. F*ck everyone who says I am trying to be American, I have an American accent, whatever. B**ch you know my accent. And anyways, this accent is not American At least appreciate that it’s an accent from a Black American. Also. it’s not American this accent, it’s hip-hop. I just want you p**sy a*s N**gas, who think you smart and know everything, and who think you are stars of the show to know.”
