Chen under controversy for racist remarks?

Article: Amidst Starbucks racism controversy, EXO’s Chen earns attention for derogatory remark on blacks “Kunta Kinte, Michael”

1. [+208, -10] This is why character is so important. These idols are always causing scandals and they need to realize that popularity isn’t everything, having good character is first~

2. [+198, -13] These kids have so many controversies… didn’t one of them call someone a retard??

3. [+168, -7] I have nothing to say ㅋㅋ.. didn’t he wear a t-shirt against racism but now goes around saying stuff like this? And can his fans please stop shielding this, this is nothing to be shielding

4. [+23, -0] This is way worse than Seolhyun’s ‘kinddokkang’ statement;; because Seolhyun’s statement came out of a pure lack of knowledge whereas Chen knows exactly who ‘Kunta Kinte’;;;; you’d have to be insane to think that’s okay… To all you stupid fangirls shielding this… imagine if a foreign celebrity made fun of our freedom fighters?

5. [+19, -0] It honestly concerns me seeing people shield instances like this to no end. Do you realize that this doesn’t help EXO in any way? If this isn’t racism, then what about when Starbucks drew slanted eyes on the cups of Asian customers? Is that not racist either? Or when foreigners slit their eyes and laugh? Shielding anything and everything isn’t always the solution~ I’m sure there are a lot of black EXO fans and ‘Kunta Kinte’ wasn’t just some light movie so of course they’re going to feel hurt by this… This is racist.

6. [+13, -0] What do you expect from the fandom of such a group… SM’s male idols are always causing scandals and their fandoms are just as bad

7. [+13, -0] Honestly if you said something like that in America, you wouldn’t even be able to go outside in case someone shot you for it

8. [+9, -0] If this isn’t racism, then what is? How is laughing about blackface any different from foreigners slanting their eyes?

9. [+8, -0] Wow, that ‘Kunta Kinte’ statement’s really bad ㅋㅋㅋ

10. [+8, -0] I’m an EXO fan and just speechless…

11. [+8, -0] First Taeyeon in the past and now this guy, something wrong with SM kids

12. [+5, -0] Haven’t they had several of these controversies? Isn’t there something wrong with their brains if they’re still making remarks like this fully knowing that it’d be controversial? Or are they purposely trying to say “I’m trash~~~”

1. [+152, -6] Honestly that was so disrespectful to say; please, stupid fangirls, don’t think of shielding this..

2. [+148, -6] I think this is the best thing about ‘V App’… it shows you the true colors of celebrities. Farewell~~~

3. [+129, -4] Is he insane???

4. [+18, -0] That Baekhyun guy has a loud mouth, now this guy too

5. [+18, -2] He’d be beaten so hard if he ever said this to a group of black people ^^ Only then will he realize what a mistake he made

6. [+16, -2] Can we please get some decent people as idols? How many controversies has EXO had already? Is being handsome all that really matters?

7. [+15, -0] EXO’s on the decline now… tired of them

8. [+15, -0] Enjoy your hiatus now

9. [+14, -1] He’s insane, he has to be

10. [+14, -0] Been a while since I’ve seen someone so utterly dumb
