Fans were surprised to hear AOA's Jimin say the N-word in a video.




Jimin performed Nicki Minaj's verse in a cover of Nelly's "Get Like Me" ft. Nicki Minaj & Pharrell Williams. The lyrics include, "My n**ga spend money like the coke price free" and she sang that part in the cover which offended some fans.

As the controversy started to brew, a concerned fan sent a direct message to Jimin on Instagram, asking her to take down the video and that the N-word is offensive to black people. Here is the screenshot of their conversation: 




The fan wrote, "Nuna, you should not say the n-word. It is a bad and sad word for black people." Jimin wrote back in English saying that she did not know and apologized. The fan wrote back, "...Please be careful what you say. I love you~" Jimin apologized again, and the video has been taken down. 


However the debate over whether it was wrong for Jimin for say the N-word that was a part of the lyric continues on her Instagram account, as many fans are writing commenting and arguing with one another.
