Super Junior's Shindong weight loss comment

The Super Junior member didn't think twice about uttering this one sided comment. "If someone had to lose weight, I would tell that person to lose weight. Lose some weight, why can't you take care of yourself. When I say this, the person might think, 'Look who's talking,' but I would reply, 'I'm a boy and you're a girl.'" 

EXID's LE said the 'N' word on 'GURUPOP' 

There are countless controversies involving the use of the "N" word, and EXID's LE was no exception. While she may have misunderstood the usage and idea behind the GURUPOP's segment, she still hurt some viewer's feelings and later apologized alongside the show hosts. Check it out at the 13:45 mark.

CL's interview with 'Paper Magazine'

Many fans felt that 2NE1's CL came off a little too stereotypical in her definitions of Asian women after reading her statements regarding their portrayal:

"I think a lot of the young kids right now are looking for something new, and they want to look different. Especially girls, and this is why I'm trying to come out here — to set an example of an Asian girl. A lot of Asian girls love being basic because it's safe. But the thing is, a lot of my fans are those girls, and they want to be bolder, but there's no one they could look up to and be like, 'It's OK to be that way.'"

NU'EST's Aron sexist comments 

While hosting a segment on Arirang Radio with Chocolat's Tia, NU'EST's Aron went ahead of himself and dug a deep hole with his sexist comments about women. Check it out at the 15:00 mark.  

Girl's Day Yura reluctant to date 'mixed' Koreans

EXO members mocking Kai's skin tone

Many groups, such as Girl's Day and VIXX, have a few tanned members and for some reason, these idols can't resist pointing it out in the most belittling ways.

Why bring thing that old rn? I think akp is just a discord seed everywhere

NORM Saturday, October 29, 2016

I feel like some of these things shouldnt be brought up after a certain number of years if the people involved realised their mistakes & apologised...but the ones without apologies, nah you just dumb :(

rapmonie Saturday, October 29, 2016

taeyeon is a fing bitch..

miapie rapmonie Saturday, October 29, 2016

Not as big of a b*tch as you!

rapmonie miapie Saturday, October 29, 2016

but she is racist....

Sophia_Sone4ever rapmonie Saturday, October 29, 2016

It already been clarified and mistranslation like 6 years ago. Only new Kpop fan don't know .

capriciousbitch miapie Sunday, October 30, 2016

@miapie - you are a big bitch, look who's talking. As for Taeyeon, koreans doesnt usuall speak english better so she might not know how big of a context she said.

well for me it´s a joke, I am using it too, I often say that a would beat someone or even worse and it´s not like I am going around beating people. I think that when someone say sth like this it means that he most likely never do it because if you know you would do it you will be too conscious about it so you never say it out loud so people don´t find out what kind of person you really are. But maybe I´m wrong ;-)

I know I'll probably get backlash for this... But I don't care. I don't get offended or mad when idols say the N word. You know why? Not because " oh my beloved idols are the best and nothing they say is wrong" that's not the case. But the fact that some people take a word that's supposedly "offensive" and use it to mean friend. That's stupid. Who takes a word that was used to look down and define black people and make it cool? When other races ( not just idols) say it not to offend but just in normal conversation like some black people do, "oh its offensive, drink bleach you racist.." Blah blah. But it's like your stupid too. Your taking a ignorant word and becoming more ignorant by using it. So if there racist, then your an ignoramus. Now if there like " oh look at that dumb N" okay... Beat them. But honestly I shouldn't have to type.this because the word should be abolished with the 13th amendment.

SuperFly_Snuka SVTxBTSxGOT7xNCT Saturday, October 29, 2016

So are you black or what

SVTxBTSxGOT7xNCT SuperFly_Snuka Sunday, October 30, 2016

Yes I am black. Now what?

SuperFly_Snuka SVTxBTSxGOT7xNCT Sunday, October 30, 2016

Nothing I just couldn't see your point

SVTxBTSxGOT7xNCT SuperFly_Snuka Sunday, October 30, 2016

I'm not saying this to start anything but to understand what your saying, did finding out my race make you understand my point? Or you still don't get it.

SuperFly_Snuka SVTxBTSxGOT7xNCT Monday, October 31, 2016

Yes it helped because sometimes white people say they're not offend by the word, and they believe everybody should be able to say it. *some white people*

FutrEpik569 SVTxBTSxGOT7xNCT Monday, October 31, 2016

Tbh I loved everything that you typed up there.

Read Taeyeon's interview for Kwave

Ciaraexo Friday, October 28, 2016

How many times does the Taeyeon bull have to come up? There are a crap ton of videos that show she was mistranslated.

Sushixxi Ciaraexo Friday, October 28, 2016

Hi so Taeyeon is my ultimate female bias and I loveee her but I've had my korean friend translate it for me and I've seen and heard multiple Korean people say that that is what she said and by listening to the audio they can confirm it wasn't mistranslated

Gallifreyan7 Ciaraexo Saturday, October 29, 2016

For Taeyeon case I think it was a little bit hypocritical. Many people don't find person from other ethnic group attractive. Sure it might be hurtful for some and she shouldn't have say that but I don't think she should be labeled as a racist person for that.

gabigazzi Friday, October 28, 2016

I know that what most of those idols said is ridiculous but this article itself seems to be created just to start fights between fans and to give something for the haters to talk about. Most of those idols suffered a lot and did their best to apologize for saying those things and their fans and the public already forgave them. I'm not even a fan of one of those celebrities above but i think this article is extremely unnecessary.

nctu_127 gabigazzi Friday, October 28, 2016

right? this article is just riling up everyone for things that have been forgotten and stuff. Most of these idols already got the backhand for what they did and now the person who created the article is just causing nonessential feelings.
