Don't use me as an excuse: Honey Singh

New Delhi, Jan 2 (IANS)

Punjabi rapper Honey Singh, who is under fire for the obscene lyrics of some of his songs, has spoken out against the uproar, saying his name has been unnecessary dragged into the controversy.

"All this going on right now. They just needed an excuse and they've found one. CONGRATULATION!" Singh tweeted.

"Before you blame me, blame the government for not taking action against the rapists in the first place! Don't use me as an excuse! #HoneySinghIsInnocent - trend if you're with me! I've admitted that my past was a wrong choice, but now I deliver completely different music," he added.

A FIR was filed against the Punjabi rapper here Monday for his alleged use of vulgar lyrics of his song "Main hun balatkaria" (I am a rapist).

The outrage also led to the cancellation of Singh's performance in Bristol Hotel, Gurgaon, where he was supposed to perform on New Year's Eve, following an active online petition.
