Mukbang star Banzz uploaded an apology for a careless comment he made regarding EXO's Xiumin during an August 7 live broadcast. 


During the said broadcast, Banzz was about to dig into a peculiar instant dish called 'mango chibap,' composed of mangoes, chicken, and rice. 'Goobne,' the brand that distributes this instant dish appointed Xiumin as the spokesperson, and the idol has actively promoted the brand, even eating the dish for himself during a past promotional event. 


Banzz had uttered during the broadcast, "It's because I eat the dish that everyone is cursing me out. But would anyone curse at this picture?" sharing a picture of Xiumin taking a bite into 'mango chibap.' Banzz then said, "It's the same dish but a different vibe, right?" Banzz then dared his viewers to insult Xiumin's picture, saying, "Insult him if you dare. I'll reveal all your IDs in the chat window." 


Though Banzz was only joking and didn't actually want people to insult Xiumin or EXO, fans were outraged all the same, condemning Banzz for using Xiumin as a part of what they believed was a joke in poor taste.

When the criticisms grew out of hand, Banzz was forced to upload an official apology on his Instagram. The mukbang star wrote, "I've said things and behaved in a way that caused misunderstanding by insulting Xiumin without any good reason. I should have blocked everyone leaving malicious comments [against Xiumin] but I didn't respond in a timely manner. I apologize to everyone who felt hurt and displeased by my thoughtless actions."


You can view the controversial statement made by Banzz for yourself around the 43:44 mark in the clip below.
