On March 29, Mad Clown shared a screenshot of a comment about his new track with San E titled "Butterfly".
The comment stated, "Seeing the yellow album cover reminds me of those fishcakes."
'Fishcakes' is a derogatory term used by Ilbe users to refer to the ones who lost their lives in the Sewol ferry tragedy. Yellow ribbons were used as a symbol of hope after the tragedy. A link to the song "Sewol Ferry" was also included in the post.
Seeing the inappropriate comment, Mad Clown stated, "Usually, I just laugh over the malicious comments but I'm going to take all the action I can against the jerks who go over the line in regards to the Sewol ferry. I can dig up all the information with just the Melon ID, so what was this asshole thinking."
Netizens are applauding Mad Clown for boldly speaking his mind and encouraging him to take strong legal action.
