Among the angered viewers was Sam Hammington. The Australian comedian called out Hong Hyun Hee on social media and stated, "Hong Hyun Hee appeared on 'People Searching For Laughter' disguised as a black person... So pathetic! How long are they going to continue this nonsensical act? Is it funny to make fun of a race? I'm embarrassed as a person who used to go on comedy programs!"




In response to the many criticisms, SBS has apologized and took down the controversial clip online.

    HONG HYUN HEE has now appologized for bad behavior ... A couple of comments by others that I agree with them --> ... (1) These apologies just seem like an excuse because Eric Nam has only been in the industry for 3-4 years but still had enough of a mind to refuse to do controversial costumes on 'SNL' like Gandhi or Hong Suk Chun out of respect for those people and their cultures. How is it that so many people on a production team can't amount to one person like Eric Nam? ... (2) This is ultimately an issue with the broadcast companies. The fact that they didn't axe this before they even let it air just means that they don't understand the root of the issue either. They sacrificed their own gagwoman when everyone's at fault. It shouldn't be the gagwoman apologizing but the broadcast company behind her.

    Sorry Sam. You're not a comedian and Koreans never wronged black people.

    And? Does that mean the fact that she did blackface is okay, just because Koreans never wronged black people? Lmao, you don't have to be a comedian to see what she did was wrong.

    Black people never wronged Koreans but do you see them waving the flag of the rising sun?

    by that retarded logic youre saying that a black face is something bad, therefore having black skin is bad?using that stupidity only makes you racist, not this comedian, who just painted her face black, cause that alone is not insulting in any way whatsoever...except, like i explained, when you think being black is something bad...

    Blackface has racist undertones, it's the reason why anyone that does comes under the fire of extreme criticism and backlash. If you don't know why it's wrong, you're better off looking up why it's offensive rather than adding your 2 cents which make little/no sense.

    He's not wrong. How many times are people going to have to call out blackface as inappropriate before they stop doing it?

    I wouldn't put the blame on just the comedian. People forget that there was a group of staff that helped produce this thing, and what about the tv network, don't they check what is going to be broadcasted?
