Oh My Girl subunit Banhana is promoting the ironic song centered around the theme of a monkey that's allergic to bananas. However, the lyrics seem to have caused some irritation for some who are suggesting the theme and content are an insensitive parody of allergy sufferers. On April 6, WM Entertainment released a statement, saying, "The lyrics are being interpreted differently than intended by the creator, and we're responding to concerns related to sufferers of allergies."

The label explained, "This new song has a positive message and story of happiness about overcoming through hope despite being different or lacking something. The producer who worked on the lyrics and composed the track suffers from an apple allergy."

What do you think of the supposed insensitivity towards allergy sufferers? Do you think it's silly or nothing to sneeze at?
