EXO's Chanyeol has edited his apology on Instagram after scores of harsh criticism toward its "poor quality"

On July 18, Chanyeol addressed his actions of illegally downloading Pokemon Gold and Silver. However, the idol star continued to be criticized by netizens for his poor grammar, writing skills, and lack of sincerity. 

Netizens claim that Chanyeol sounded inappropriately joyful and excited, judging by his use of exclamation points. He was also called insincere for uploading a random picture of him along with the apology. In addition, he referred to himself using the third person, which made the overall writing sound childish and unprofessional.

As a result of the harsh criticism, Chanyeol first edited his post by taking out his photo and exclamation points. Soon after, he further edited the post by removing the use of the third person. However, despite the changes, netizens and even some fans have turned against Chanyeol for his continuous "inappropriate behavior"



안녕하세요 찬열입니다. 오늘 이렇게 글을 올린 이유는 여러분들께 사과를 드리기 위해서 글을 몇자 적어보려 합니다. 우선 저도 게임을 굉장히 좋아하는 사람이고 공인으로서 이번 인스타그램에 불법으로 게임을 돌리는 영상을 올린 행동은 굉장히 경솔했던 행동이라고 생각하고 정품을 애용하는 유저분들 및 불쾌하셨던 모든분들께 사과드리겠습니다. 앞으로도 항상 많은 부분에서 조심하고 정품을 이용하겠습니다.

No hate..just my opinion...just wondering why edit the apology if he'sincere the first time he posted it. It's like he defeated the purpose of the apology but instead he tried to make it look good for people to read..again just my opinion. No hate for him ☺

He made a mistake, which wasn't all too serious IMO, and apologized for it in a way that matched his mistake, I think. Does he have to act as though someone died in order for his apology to come off as sincere? There's worse problems in this world than that.

This is such a stupid thing to get mad over, like netizens haven't illegally dl something before? Or illegally dl pokemon go before it was available in Korea, there where alot of tutorials going around for that, I'm sure they used it. The only way to get that rare "gameboy" version (pokemon gold, silver, crystal) of the game he had was to dl through an emulator, this isn't hard to understand. He made a mistake, he doesn't have to re-edit his apology. There are more important things in the world to worry about.

Are you fucking serious? LET THE BOY LIVE. God! How he stays so happy with all this bullshit going on is beyond me.

To be honest the fact that he edited it is probably just going to make netizens more upset. He should have just left it they way it was.
