KARD say they will never say anything derogatory + apologize for the misunderstanding

After their tour manager spoke up, the members of KARD also stepped up and shared their thoughts. 


KARD is in the middle of their first overseas tour 'WILD KARD' and after the first stop in Vancouver, Canada, J.Seph and Jiwoo were accused by people on the internet of saying the 'N' word during their performance of "B*tch Better Have My Money" by Rihanna. The tour manager took quick action and clarified that they did not say the 'N' word but said "HITTER/HITTA" instead.


For their second stop on their tour in Chicago, native-English speaker BM stated that they would never ever say anything derogatory and that they respect everyone.



Although they didn't do anything wrong, J.Seph and Jiwoo also personally apologized for the misunderstanding.



It's great to see how everyone involved handled this situation in such a professional manner.


Also, the KARD members revealed that they are filming the music video for their official debut while they're in the United States for their concert tour. Should be very exciting for fans waiting for their official debut!

    It's supposedly a right to free speech and the shock factor. Rihanna and Nicki Minaj are big on cuss words. Miley Cyrus is big on shocking fans with the way she dresses. But they claim the right to act like they are acting. Personally that type of behavior really turns me off and I end up not listening to any of their music.

    My brother would look at you and say "I'm NOT a n***er and I'm sure as hell not yours". Intelligent black folk find that term offensive when it comes from ANYONE. When a black person calls another black person that term, they are saying two things. First, that's what they are. Second, that's what they think of the person they're talking to. Saying only blacks can do or say something simply because they are black makes you a racist. Period.

    No thats you trying to segragate yourself by enforcing steriotypes. The N word has one meaning and its bad. I wonder if Michael Jackson is allowed to say it according to your own arbitrary double standards. Im not from the US but my country was part of an empires low end caste system. So i can relate way more than you can imagine. The thing i dont get is why you arent leaving this horrible term behind but instead trying to reinvent it?Theres no value to doing that.You cant reinvent the term nazi and you shouldnt have to. So why does this derogatory term towards so many people need to stay in circulation in our day to day lives?

    I think as Anythingyg said, the term in question could have several different meanings, such as the word "sick". It's all about how you use it. However I do agree that we should just avoid the use of it altogether: as you mentioned, black people who propagate the use of such a word commercialize, dignify and promote it, undermining the severity of it as an insult. This leads to ignorant people (be it children or Koreans) using it lightly and getting huge backlash.

    You can't expect Koreans to understand black racism/culture on the same level as you do. At the same time, you can't just undermine the hardships they've gone through. Just because they haven't experienced what you have doesn't mean that they haven't suffered equally as much. Of course that applies to Koreans too, which brings me back to my point above: people should just stop using racial slurs altogether. Including the black people themselves. This stops anyone from innocently, ignorantly, accidentally insulting others.

    It's easy to explain. You think you're good enough to say something because you're black. You think that anyone who isn't is less than you are and is not permitted to say it. That. Is. Racist. Intelligent black folk hate the term coming from ANYONE.

    I grew up in a black neighborhood and heard blacks call each other this and other derogatory words. But God forbid a white person said it to them. I never understood the reason behind it as they said it to each other all the time. You seem to have a real chip on your shoulders. Sure ni**a is a bad word but this behavior can be changed and/or dealt with as other people say words like this. It can be also be corrected when you hear kids saying it and other derogatory words like it. There is no need to keep rehashing what happened in the past but to move forward and make something of yourself and other blacks. Education is the key word here. And people who dwell on living in the past are destined to repeat the past.

    The world doesn't revolve around black racism, around black people and definitely not around you. Btw, you're really contradictory lmao, by pushing for black supremacy in terms of exclusivity (i.e. being the only race/colour to be able to use a word or comment on the topic of black racism), you're being racist. If you're so against black racism you shouldn't be advocating racism against other races.
