On April 14, Korean Englishman released a teaser for the upcoming reaction video he filmed with the actors of 'The Avengers'.
The trailer was heavily focused on Tom Holland, Tom Hiddleston, and Benedict Cumberbatch. Actress Pom Klementieff was left out of the picture. Netizens criticized Korean Englishman for "discrimination" and claimed the edit was inappropriate and rude to the actress.
In response, Korean Englishman posted an apology, stating,
"Lastly, everyone here at the Korean Englishman team would like to express our heartfelt apologies regarding the trailer for this video, that was uploaded on Saturday.Rather than making excuses, we would like to acknowledge our mistakes and express our deepest remorse.
We've taken the trailer down now. It wasn't right to focus on Tom Holland, Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch, but not on Pom Klementieff in the introduction. No matter how excited we were personally about meeting those actors, it is no excuse to leave one of them out. Pom Klementieff was a pleasure and honour to meet, and absolutely does not deserve to be neglected recognition in favour of her colleagues, or in any way.
We have always sought for our channel to be a positive place, promoting cultures that we genuinely love and bringing people and cultures together. That is our whole purpose and why we do what we do. And so it is heartbreaking for us to look back on something we've said in a video we've made and see that it has caused so much upset and hurt. We ask that you believe us when we say we are truly sorry. We will do our best to learn from this and be better."
