Social media platforms have changed the way people communicate and the speed at which they do so, which comes with advantages as well as disadvantages. For celebrities especially, sometimes the disadvantages can greatly outweigh the advantages as their every move and every post are watched by critical eyes. CL's latest post seems to demonstrate that point with her photo instantly sparking arguments among fans from all corners of the world.

CL shared the above snapshot on her Instagram, showing the rapper blowing smoke after using what seems to be a water pipe, or also commonly known as hookah, at a hookah lounge or bar which is becoming more prevalent in many parts of the world.


The Instagram post rapidly gained comments of varying nature with some commenting, "You are public figure so why did you post this?", "What are you doing?", "It's bad for your health", "I can't believe she's smoking", "So disappointed in CL", "Just leave her alone, it is her life", "It's just hookah, calm down everyone", and more.


What do you think about the situation?

Ohh, well yes CL has a public figured but that doesn't mean that she have to pretend somebody whom she is not. What's with smoking? of course, you do worry a lot to her but also keep in your minds that its her choice. If she want to smoke cigarettes or weed then let her be. She's a human and am sure she also have vices (like you). Don't treat her like a pet or what for commenting such negatives opinions or commanding her to do things what people like. If you don't want her to be like that then leave.

Even celebrities have a say in their own lives and the things they choose to do. It's a little disheartening to see public figures like CL posting things like this online though. In a sense all these celebrities set examples to those who watch them, meaning that many of their actions will influence others in the society. It's not fair to jump to the conclusion that she's smoking something unhealthy etc however the act itself just gives the society the idea that doing these kind of things is no big deal. It's sad to see that people disregard these activites as "no big deal" because "everyones doing it". It's like the korean culture where drinking lots of alcohol is no big deal even though it's known to be unhealthy but no one seems to really care because everyone does it. Just because everyone does it doesn't make it right or healthy. What people choose to do is their own business, their own choice, but I think it's wrong to be encouraging or influencing others to also do it. I know the lives of celebrities are not easy but they are the face of the country, many people look up to them and want to be like them and often imitating their actions is one of the ways to do that. I just wish people cared a little more about others and for not just their health but the health of the people around them >.<

why is everybody making the deal out of this... coz she's a public figure??? oh please grow up!! it's not like you haven't seen people around you smoke water vapor.. oh wait you dont coz it's the real smoke you see around you and for gods sake everybody smokes(except to those vegan and people who has a healthy lifestyle XD)... ok.. let me tell you what i think.. CL offers us her music.. we listen, she's famous because we follow the music she gives us.. THAT"S IT.. she's famous because of her music same goes for everyone in music industry.. and why would some people follow what CL's been doin? we have our own lives to take care of.. she has her own life...CL's a dope, cool, everything but she's not perfect at all.. nobody is.. everybody change.. CL smokes... so what? it's not like it would harm you.. and for her antis---> your criticisms will make her even famous.. u hate her music? but i know you check it out on youtube and it will add more to her million viewers.. u hate her becoz of her face? huh.. u can check ur own face in the mirror.. and if you see urself more beautiful than her.. try auditioning in any entertainment and we'll see if you'll be accepted.. just sick of reading some fanwars here... realtalk: CL's a talent.. a hardworking person... respect... same goes to all music industry artists u like.. *hats down*

Let her live her life.  "Controversial" lifestyle does not make or break the quality of music.

I (personally) think that this picture only benefits the ANTI-2ne1 "fans"... it doesn't help her, her popularity, or Blackjacks. I just hope she doesn't become one of those messed up celebrities... it can happen (*NO hate intended, just my thoughts and opinions)
