I’ve recently seen that people are accusing Yugyeom of making a colorist joke on vlive.
The joke in question was “what is burnt rice in English? Bobbi brown”
The joke isn’t racist or colorist, but a play on words, if you listen carefully you’ll see that “burnt rice” and" Bobbi Brown" sound really similar.
I understand why some people may think that the joke is colorist, if they don’t know Korean. But I find this situation embarassing…
And, since I know that some of you will keep pushing this situation regardless of the explanation, I’ll also clarify two other things:
1. Yugyeom DID NOT make the joke, his friend did. This misunderstanding could have been avoided by simply watching the vlive… 2. Yugyeom didn’t even UNDERSTAND the joke. In fact he also asked “Why is the burnt rice Bobbi Brown?”.But obviously this part was cut out from every screenshots and clip that are circulating around.
This whole situation shows how antis are hitching to find a chance to drag EVERY GOT7 member. And also people in general. I’ve seen loads of tweets calling YG racist and all other sorts of name.
I’m honestly tired of this, if this same situation was to happen with any other idol I’m pretty sure that before jumping to conclusions people would have tried to verify the situation, instead of believing random screenshots taken out of context.
