Why do people bash rap monster so much?
there are a few facets as to why people hate on him so much. one of the main ones is simply the fact that people don’t find him attractive. they will use this as a bases to stem hate. people tend to think he is not as cute, fun and funny as the other members. I’ve literally seen god damn fucking articles from grown ass adults talking about how he is one of the most unattractive people in kpop which in itself is fucking disgusting.
people think he is untalented as mind-blowing that might be, I really can’t even wrap my head around that. they do not think he should be in bangtan because they don’t think he has anything to offer but rather takes away from the other members. there are often posts and tags talking about how he should have never been in bangtan or should leave bangtan and let the other members go on without him.
and another reason is that people seem to forget that namjoon is actually a real person who makes mistakes, grows and learns from them. he got hate for his ‘plagiarism’ of lyrics, his ‘misogynistic’ lyrics, as well as racial slurs. now you may read just this without looking at these articles, but the thing is has namjoon fucked up? absolutely, no question about it. but has he grown, profusely apologized, shown remorse and more? 100000% namjoon has grown a lot and he was once very ignorant on the colorist remarks because of his lack of knowledge. being korean, living in korea with only 1% of the population being foreign he didn’t know the comments he made were insensitive. this is normal in a society where there isn’t much of a diversity. one is not born into the world knowing all there is to know, you learn by being taught what is right from wrong and what is okay to say and what isn’t. the thing is namjoon had to learn about these things publicly, making him the target for hate.
though many people will batt their eyelashes and think “yeah whatever~,” you must also know that through all this, namjoon has become incredibly open minded and understanding. he is a HUGE supporter of the lgbtqa+ community, even released a song which talks about same sex love the day after korea put a ban on same sex marriage, supports all religions (many interviews saying so) and any ethnicity along with many other things. namjoon learnt from his mistakes and grew up to be an amazing young adult. but everyone keeps forgetting about all the good things he’s done, and choose to simply remember the negative, and all the things he’s apologized for countless times. he is human, everyone makes mistakes and learns namjoon doesn’t deserve to still be reminded of those mistakes everyday and continue to be hated for them, especially with all the positive things he puts out and shows everyday
this is why so many people choose to hate him
