Many viewers thought he was making a racist gesture where he was pulling his eyes, a move derogatory for Asians, while others thought he was putting his middle finger up at the camera. Either way, the offensive gesture annoyed fans, who criticized not the staff but the bystander for making such a movement on camera.

...but his fingers aren't touching his face. It definitely looks like he's just posing...

If you watch the video, he's definitely doing a slanty eye gesture.

Koreans don't give a crap about racist crap. They have no problems with black face and what not. Why are they crying now?

Many comments from knetizens acknowledged their own racism. That said, they don't plan to do anything about it - one comment was something along the lines of "we can just make fun of white people for how old they look"

blackface?

saro lulzbrooks Monday, August 15, 2016

you don t know what blackface is ?

I remembered it after I posted. But the thing is Korea is a homogenous country. We don't know what's considered bad for other cultures. But you can counter argue saying that it's the 21st century and that they should know etc... I have lived in several English speaking countries but I still didn't know blackface was a thing until I was a senior in HS taking AP U.S. History. To my knowledge, there is no P.R. group or organization in Korea that educates people about black people or their culture, etc.... Look at the LGBT organization in Korea, because of them people are now more aware of what the issues are and are slowly more accepting of them.

It's LA living in the area I am surprised how Koreans walk around more bravely then locals. And being a local I am not surprised. LA is-how should I put it-Interesting.

racism is a global disease

Whether he did it or not, honestly who would even be surprised if it did happen? t's the US, a place where all the races and ethnicity live together but people are still racists. A place where Donald Trump can run for president and actually get tons of supporters.

Racism is everywhere, but no one is surprised at this happening in America.

couldn't have said it better myself

you can CLEARLY see he's posing with his hand in front of his face while making the peace sign or the thinking chin sign thing ( thumb and index finger).
