A BTOB fan reports that she asked for Peniel's thoughts on Trump's win and got a funny response.

The tweet reads, "My friend asked Peniel at the fan event, what do we do now Trump's elected, and Peniel said, sternly, 'America is ruined.' lolllll" 


To Peniel's honest response, Netizens are commenting by saying the following: 





"Wow, that's awesome. I think it's great that a celebrity can speak honestly about politics." 




"His parents met in America and got married, and Peniel was born in the States and came to Korea only because he passed the audition, but it could be uncomfortable for him to talk about it; I like that he can speak straightforwardly." 






"It's okay. Korea is ruined, too."


"I think when he says 'ruined' he isn't talking about economical ruin, but the atmosphere of the society. Someone who speaks in opening racist, sexist way became a president...Yesterday, KKK was going crazy..." 


"Peniel was born in America!! He has an U.S. citizenship! He can say that because to him, American is a home country." 


What do you guys think about idols commenting on politics?

    I'm honestly disappointed more American idols didn't speak out about this or at least remind people to vote. I know they have to be careful with their career but 😓Thanks Peniel!

    Yall we just have to hold each others hand. Doesn't matter what race , sex, immigration ,religion or sexuality we all are in this together. One thing donald becoming president is going to do is pull minorities together. and we will be stronger than we EVER have been. Just take a moment and let's hold our brothers and sisters hand. It's hard on all of us but WE CAN MAKE IT THROUGH THIS!!1
