's mother has gone under fire for her incredibly vulgar words toward gold medalist Olympian Ki Bo Bae

In the post, she wrote, "Uljjang archer Ki Bo Bae: 'Targets are easier to hit when I eat boshintang'. Sorry and I might seem uneducated, but let me curse you out. You crazy b*tch. Are you advertising that Korea is barbaric? If targets become easier to eat, why don't you also stuff your face with your [derogatory term for parents].. Why, didn't you hear that human meat is good for you? You b*tch with your head full of sh*t. Just keep those thoughts to yourself as you stuff your face. #KiBoBaeCrazyB*tch #Don'tShameKorea."
As the post blew up for her incredibly rude words against the archer, the mother posted again, writing, "First, let me apologize for my over-the-top words to Ki Bo Bae. I am a person who likes Ki Bo Bae as well. You might not be able to tell on Instagram, but this story is going around. Everyone is not focusing on that she eats it, but that a national representative is bringing Korea's image down. The reason why I did community service for dogs is because of this same reason. When people go overseas, they all become patriotic... Since I have a lot of dogs, people say, "I heard your country people eat dogs? You beat them up and roast them up?" I was so embarassed and shamed. At least people who are representatives of the country, and those who are for the progress for the country, should be careful with their words. I know I was over the top. No matter what happens, I think the same. However, since apparently it's something her father said, I apologize to her."
However, the fire continued raging and the mother has set her Instagram on private. The model herself has also set her Instagram on private, as the hate has moved to her account as well. Many are pointing out that the mother has basically ruined her daughter's career with the thoughtless post.
What do you think about this situation?
