    I don't understand why people are offended when someone says dog-eater. Dogs are delicious. And no...I am not Korean.

    i also don't understand why eating dog is inherently barbaric. Like we eat chicken, pig, cow, some people eat frogs. so why is it so bad that some cultures do eat dog?

    Maybe wild dogs, because you can basically fry any shit and it'll taste okay, but dog-eater is supposed to be an insult. Not a literal thing.

    It's because people associate Asians specifically, and how dogs are so close to humans. It's not a good thing to be called that. It's pretty much on the same spectrum of calling someone a oreo.

    but how is dog-eater an insult? eating dogs isn't a bad thing. As an asian i don't take offense to it because it doesn't apply to me. and if it did that wouldn't be an insult

    Well...you don't really keep chickens, cows, frogs,pigs as pets do you? If i had any of these animals as beloved pets, i wouldn't have eaten them too.

    But those aren't considered household pets, and it's basically cannibalism to people . And it's because it's meant as an insult. It stings when people say those racist things

    Animals that are farm grown can be eaten. Cats and Dogs aren't farmed grown are they? That just basic common sense. Certain animals are meant to breed to produce foods. Not Cats and Dogs. Chicken gives us eggs. Like Cows give milk. Where do cats and dogs fit in in providing any food? I don't care if I offend anyone it's just wrong to eat them, and disgusting too. And no I never call an Asian that stupid remark.. Since I'm part of a minority group that always gets label as such and such. I don't use stupid racist labels. I am an avid cat and dog lover and I hate what happens to them in certain countries.

    ok and? people can eat whatever they want. literally eating any animal is the same as eating a burger or steak. you're just raised differently so you assume it wrong. but to many cultures it isn't.

    eating an animal is not basically eating a person. We don't have the same culture so clearly we have different views. but why try and use something from someones culture as an insult? Thats like like calling a mexican person a taco eater and suddenly its offensive? like yeah you tacos thats not offensive. I don't take offense to someone saying "dog-eater" because I'm not offended. eating something is not offensive.

    Well if it degrades you into a common stereotype, then it is offensive, and I do not want to be called that.

    Finally, a normal reaction from an idol. So happy this isn't one of those overreactions or else this article title would be "JAY PARK AGENCY TO TAKE LEGAL ACTION AGAINST MALICIOUS COMMENTORS.".....I'm happy Jay Park brushed this off so easily. It's sad for the FB commentors to behave in such a pathetic way, but in the end it shouldn't affect you so much.

    it should affect us so much because we're Asian. Why do you think the black community is so strong? they protect their people and culture. Most of us LIKE YOU (not trying to say anything mean) just ignores it and that's why it's so normal for it to not be a "big deal" when it should be.

    I know what you mean, but at the same time, being angry and lashing back at the online commentors has never solved anything. If anything, it makes things worse. Black community is strong, but often you will see them say something like "white people smfh, obviously retards." Though the video they comment on usually shows white people being stupid, it doesn't help ANYTHING when people say stuff like that. It makes a lot of white people reply and say "Yeah cuz black people are savages and need to go back to the jungle to eat shit." Now, both races start hating each other even more, increasing the tension. If you don't believe me, go to any video on facebook about race, and you will be disgusted by the comment section. There really is no way to educate these kinds of people unless you see them face to face.

    I understand what you're saying, but I'm just disappointed that the Asian Americans that has a VOICE is choosing not to raise it. Therefore, common people like many in the US just stay quiet. Quite shameful imo :/

    I say that he really didn't do anything wrong at all and he doesn't deserve all of those nasty and vicious racist comments.  And therefore, all of those people really need to get themselves educated before opening their big fat mouths and spit out such crazy and dumb nonsense for no reason at all.

    For someone who made a racist remark himself, I don't think he could say anything about it.
