Carter is seen on his own Instagram placing an order for food from a Chinese restaurant. It's clear he's using an Asian accent while saying phrases like "General Tso's chicken" and "crab rangoon."
He wrote with the post:
"When your friends can't order Chinese food chicken in NYC AND you have to SHOW THEM YOURE cultural status #satire."
It seems he thought using the hash tag "satire" would clear him from all wrongdoing, but it clearly does not.
"It’s obvious to everyone around you how mentally ill you are and how you need help. I pray you get it," wrote ibetyoufivebucksyouwont.
"Dude. Get help," said glitterfresh.
"You are such a loser. said ktrowan77.
Carter even engaged with detractors underneath the post. When someone said to him "Aaron Carter you need help. Serious help," Carter told them, "you need some extra duck sauce."
There were some people who defended Carter.
"People can not have fun now days with anything... everything is always something, but at least you got your food lol!" wrote trishamhayes.
The controversy comes soon after Carter announced in late November that he was taking a break from social media due to "stressors building up" as he reached his 32th birthday.
"Taking a break from all social media and some time for myself. There’s been a lot of stressors building up and I’m going to be 32 soon. I have shows coming up. Never miss them. And bills to pay. Lol LOVE YOU ALL!! See you on the road. No more social media nonsense for me. #LMG"
It seems Carter should have kept his word and stayed off social media.
Those on Twitter knew he'd be back. @bsbfan89 wrote "Ha we will see how long no social media takes I give him 12 hours."
But it also came soon after his brother, Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys, said he requested a restraining order against Aaron for alleged threatening.
Nick spoke out in October about his brother.
"I've been very hurt by the fact that my big brother has not made an effort to be a part of my life for a long time. So therefore, I lashed out and said some hurtful things I did not mean to say.:"
"I love my brother. I love my family, and all I want is peace and love for everybody," he said.
