Wanna One's Kim Jae Hwan criticized for allegedly using N-word?

Wanna One, Kim Jae Hwan
Wanna One's Kim Jae Hwan is currently under fire for allegedly using the N-word in a short clip for 'Show! Champion'. 

Viewers of the music show and other K-pop listeners are noticing what the Wanna One member allegedly said and pointing it out as inappropriate. As you can see in the clip below, Kim Jae Hwan seems to say, "Yo n-word what's up?! Come on!" However, 'Show Champion' subtitled it as, "Yo I'm what's up?! Come on."

One allkpop user sent in a tip, commenting, "The video editors covered it up by adding slightly different subtitles from what was actually said. Problem is the subtitles make no sense that way, which makes the cover up much more obvious."

However, other fans are stating Kim Jae Hwan was actually making a play on words, saying, "Yo, I'm here?! Come on!"

What are your thoughts?
