Noah's friend recently shared the video on Instagram, reminiscing on their time together in camp.

In the clip, the star is heard singing along to Lil Dicky's Freaky Friday.

The n-word is repeated in the song.

He wrote, 'Recently a video from last summer has gotten out of me dancing and singing a song while singing the word "neighbor" over the n word.'

'I would truly never say the n word and I'm not the type of person. I genuinely have never used that word in my life'

The 15-year-old continued, 'Using the word "neighbor" in that song was just something my camp friends and I did.'

'I hope you all understand I could never even think about doing that.'

'My friends also would never post a video, or support me, if I was saying that slur without hesitation.'
