Fans are angry about Time Magazine's EXO-KFC comparison article

Time Magazine recently posted an article entitled, "The Internet thinks EXO dressed Like Colonel Sanders for the Olympics Closing Ceremony." This article sparked some anger from EXO-Ls due to the insensitive nature of it. 

The article states "People thought their getups were strikingly similar to the formal attire that the Colonel wears, and the internet couldn't get enough about the stylistic similarities between the KFC mascot and the K-pop band. The observation raged like wildfire on Twitter, with users agreeing the resemblance is uncanny. So what to do with the fact that EXO may or may not look to the Southern gentleman and fried chicken lifer as a style muse? Or maybe the Korean franchises should release nine new sauces based on EXO's various alien personas?" 

Time's mocking tone got the Twitter EXO-L community heated. K-Pop fan bases are known to be extremely protective of their favorite groups, so the magazine is being heavily criticized for the publication of this article. Fans are rightly mad, considering the EXO members were wearing matching white Gucci suits. They were not trying to replicate the Colonel's style. What do you make of this debacle?
