[Trans]150504 Taecyeon RTed f(x) Amber’s Tweet

@taeccool: When you mock someone’s weird accent, do you even realize the person can speak another language fluently?ㅋㅋㅋ The mentality when you go to America and they mock you for greeting the gathered fans in English is just wow…

f(x) Shoots Ice Cream CF without Sulli, SM Entertainment Clarifies

Members of f(x) excluding Sulli recently shot a commercial for ice cream brand Baskin Robbins.

The SM Entertainment group has been chosen to be the models for the ice cream brand’s bingsoo, and they will release a “Bingsoo song” for the summer. The group’s leader Victoria posted a sneak peek of the commercial on her Instagram account.

The fans consequently picked up on Sulli not being present in any of the behind-the-scenes footage released so far, as only four members can be seen.

Regarding this issue, SM Entertainment told the media, “The reason why Sulli is not in the CF is because she was on a hiatus when we signed the contract with Baskin Robbins. There isn’t another reason behind it.”

A representative from Baskin Robbins also clarified, “Sulli was excluded from the contract since the beginning. When we were finalizing the contract, her scandal with Choiza blew up. After discussing the issue with SM, we decided to go ahead with the project without her.”

f(x)’s video for Baskin Robbins, as well as the photo shoot, will be released via the brand’s social media sites.

(soompi) + Amber & Luna will be singing for the song, and f(4) will be in the web CF.

ppl harassed, bullied, bashed ssul to the point that she couldnt take anymore and got sick and they’re still acting like she’s the guilty one in this whole mess

YOU WERE THE ONES WHO DID THIS SHIT, YOU ARE THE GUILTY ONES

and now everybody just keep demanding stuff from her when they almost destroyed her carrer, leaving it in pieces right now

what the fuck ssul did wrong to deserve all this hate? and ppl keep saying that she should just leave the group already but still got mad when she doesnt take part in the almost-non-existing f(x) activities!!!!!!! WHAT THE HELL

fuck you very much and good luck with all your hate for ssul because SHE WILL COME BACK AND THERE’S NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT THAT

….I wasn’t gonna say anything but.  This is beyond ridiculous.

So there’s a difference between making fun of an accent of a single person who 1) often appears on shows where her accent is a part of her appeal, in bits where she’s always a part of the joke, 2) is not being made fun of as a representative of her whole race, 3) is not seen as incompetent or stupid because of her accent, and 4) is white and in a country where there is no history of whites being seen as racially inferior (pretty much everywhere).

There’s a difference between that and growing up being made fun of for your accent and your race and your culture, in a country where you’re never in on the joke because you are the joke, where having an accent is synonymous with being inferior, stupid, and backwards, where it can keep you from being taken seriously or getting a job, where it can make you feel ashamed of your parents.

Amber is Asian American, she would know how that feels as much as any of us. And if you knew how that felt you would never be able to compare it to the Christina thing.  

Sure, it’s possible that Korean prejudice against foreigners could be a factor in why Christina and her accent are funny there, but Amber herself is a foreigner, often made fun of for her Korean, so if anything it’s actually less sketchy coming from her.
