The MAMAMOO member uploaded a goofy photo of herself on the group's official fan cafe with the caption, "I take weird photos sometimes.... Because that's how I can feel I'm no different than non-celebrities... This is the only tool that I can use to hide myself...."




Many netizens found her post offensive as they interpreted Whee In to be degrading non-celebrities. 


Comments stated, "Did she have to make that goofy face to show that she's no different than non-celebs?'', "What's so different about being a regular person..'', "She looks like a non-celeb. What is wrong with her?'', ''You guys are not on the A level yet. How dare you use the term non-celeb/regular person lol Is being a celebrity that big of a deal?"

Gee.....peopl...im sorry, NETIZENS, are always ready to jump on idols throats. She clearly meant celebs are known for looking pretty all the time and dont have many intentional funny photos. Real people would not hide an embarassing photo...they take pride in it. I hide my funny pics bcuz im not real on social media...that's honesty

Mamamoo seems to be under a lot of fire lately. There was the blackface issue, then the whole racist thing with the bindi, now this. They're so talented, but they're often misunderstood.

Am I missing something? Where is the offensive part?! She's just saying, she feels less like an idol and more normal when she takes weird selfies. As opposed to the kept up, composed look most celebrities have. But now all of a sudden "she's no A-lister" or "being a celeb isn't a big deal" when they hold idols to a whole nother level any other day. Stop being so offended!

I don't get it.

Stupid. I believe she meant that she able to relax and be goofy like an ordinary person, because idols don't really have this right.

blackjack_doomey Friday, June 23, 2017

Lol. What is offensive about it?

EivaCake Friday, June 23, 2017

Don't yall have lives. Get out, have some fun. I seriously can't believe knetizens have the time to insult other people because their 'celebrities'. Knetizens said it themselves, they're just regular people. Don't you realize your being invasive and rude to another 'normal person'. Where'd you learn to live such a hateful lyfe???
