“You don’t need an Arabic mix, you’re an NTT mix. You don’t need to be fancy using an Arabic mix. Your face is really NTT,” said the celebgram in his upload while laughing.

Apart from that, he also revealed that he had met NTT residents with sentences that were offensive and tended to be racist. “I’ve ever met little black people, I’m not a racist, they seem really stupid.
