Rapper Black Nut receives sentence for defamation of character against KittiB

Rapper Black Nut (28) has received his sentencing for KittiB's defamation of character case against him.

On October 18, the Seoul Central District Court oversaw the final trial of KittiB's lawsuit against Black Nut, and the courts sentenced him to 1 year of prison and 2 years of a suspended sentence. He was found guilty of defamation of character against the fellow rapper.

As previously reported, KittiB filed a lawsuit against Black Nut in June of 2017 due to lyrics he wrote in his track "Indigo Child". His lyrics state, "I'll be honest. I jacked off to KittiB's picture, but that was before 'Unpretty Rapstar'," and "I wouldn't screw KittiB if she was given to me for free." He also reportedly made lewd gestures during a live performance of the song.

This is complete bullshit and where is the defamation? His lyrics even though they are nasty are just saying he use to jack to her but now he doesn't want her like that. It's not like when they were calling her PIGGY B on Unpretty Rapstar. She can kiss my a** on this one. I use to like her, but this is plain stupid.

She said the same thing to Jolly V in a diss track. These are some of her lyrics:

''That's your world. Overpopulated with just you. Go masturbate there, out of everyone's interest to your desire''

"You don't have to reject the title of a woman because you look like a man"

Time in prison for defamation on this level is really harsh. I understand reputation is very important to those in S. Korea but why not give him a high fine to pay and a long community service at an organization for abuse victims. I just find this so backwards that someone is given prison time for this when there was a case of teenagers inflicting horrible violence on a female student and the teenagers received no punishment

Black Nut attends his first trial date in defamation case


The rapper Black Nut pleaded innocent on the charges of defamation. The first trial date was held today at the Seoul Central District Court. Final sentencing is expected to happen on 29th of November after both sides have presented their cases.


The feud goes back all the way to 2016 when Black Nut performed the song with lewd remarks towards KittiB. She reported it to the police in 2017 and the case was eventually forwarded to the prosecution.


Black Nut's lawyer argued that such lyrics and gestures are common place in rap culture and Black Nut himself said in his last statement that there was no intent to defame her in anyways and he was surprised that the public received his lyrics like that.


KittiB's intiial case was based on sexual harassment, but those claims did not have enough merits to warrant an indictment. Prosecution office ended up indicting Black Nut officially only on the defamation aspect of the case earlier this year.


Defamation law is notoriously strict in Korea curtailing people's right of speech, something even UN free speech commission have noted and asked Korea to fix. That being said, only in the most extreme and rare cases are people ever sentenced to actual prison. In recent years, the common result is a fine if found guilty.


--------------------------


There you go. And given the fact that I don't speak the language at all and I haven't followed the trial at all, it's abysmal how this original "article" can be so bad.


Also. It's the last time I'll rewrite your shit. It's there just for people reading that original garbage.... know that basically EVERY SINGLE THING in the "akp article" was wrong.

Rapper Black Nut has been recommended sentencing in the defamation suit filed by KittiB.

On October 18, prosecution demanded one year in prison with two years of probation for Black Nut at a hearing at the Seoul Central District Court. This means that Black Nut will be in probation for two years, and will have to serve one year in prison if he violates the condition of the suspension during those two years. The prosecution did not provide any explanation for the sentence recommendation.

I can argue this on certain cases (I'm defending Black Nut even though he should have clearly known this would be a controversy). Freedom of speech doesn't mean you can do whatever and say whatever you want, that isn't what it means, same thing with the free country. Everyone has a right to their opinion yes, but not all opinions matter and not all opinions are meant to be heard. Also it's common sense, there is a time and place to keep your mouth shut, everyone are grown ass adults you should know when to keep shut. Opinions, beliefs, and wanting attention aren't the same thing and a lot of people forget that at times, as said the same thing with Free Country. Free Country doesn't mean you can come to America illegally and stay illegal and not become a citizen and expect to be treated like one, no, it doesn't mean you live off of food stamps and take people's jobs who have been working for years just cause you illegally immigrated here and also refuse to learn English. Free Country means ANYONE no matter what race, skin color, ethnicity, religion you are are welcome here and loved, yes there are racists and prejudice but that's literally life and everywhere and sadly you can't escape that unless a miracle happens. Freedom of Speech does not mean you're entitled to do whatever you please.

Most illegal immigrants don't live of food stamps, they're usually working extreme low wage jobs that other citizens don't want. And this isn't about racism or illegal immigrants it's about free speech and defamation.

Damn! A prison sentence because of words?! South Korea isn't much into freedom of speech, is it? We all know that freedom of speech isn't limitless. There are many situations where we restrict if for good reason. But this guy just expressed his thoughts, and in a musical piece which is supposed to be art. You might not like what he said, maybe you think it was disgusting, vulgar, immature, etc. but those are exactly the kind of views that freedom of speech is supposed to protect. Freedom of speech obviously protects all speech, but it wasn't invented to protect everyday, uncontroversial speech such as opinions about the weather. Freedom of speech was formulated specifically to protect controversial speech, the kind of speech that is bound to upset people. People need to be able to express these kinds of views without the fear of repercussions. All people get upset by something, so without freedom of speech we would have people being sued left and right because of hurt feelings.


Kitti should just recognize that people masturbate, often thinking about someone or with the help of visual aids. If someone masturbates while looking at your picture, you can be flattered, disgusted or don't care, but what are you going to do about it? And sometimes people will tell about it in public. That happens. It's not as if what Black Nut said tarnished Kitti's reputation. We heard some lyrics about her, and life goes on. Black Nut should absolutely be allowed to say what he said. Again, many things we say are restricted, like for example lying in court, or yelling "fire" in a packed theatre, but saying that you masturbate while looking at an old picture of someone, that you don't like the way they look now, and that you would not have sex with them, is not something that should be restricted. It's just an opinion, and you don't have to like it, but that's all it is. The threshold for putting someone in prison for speech should be as high as possible, and restrictions on speech should be done very cautiously.

Dude if Eminem lived in Korea he would be screwed. He got sued for defamation plenty of times but each time he was never convicted. Honestly this sucks. Like lets say your favorite idol rapper left their company. And then they rapped about how bad that company was, the injustices etc. Then that company could sue for defamation. Ya I feel bad for KittiB but the implications of having someone guilty for this are bad for the Korean rap community as a whole.

Honestly, I'm not surprised that KittiB's lawsuit went through, but what surprised me was the prison sentence. I was expecting that Black Nut was going to pay up since it was a defamation lawsuit. But then again, South Korea's laws are different from any other countries' laws. Plus KittiB had the right to sue him considering that those lyrics did harm her repuation and she suffered mentally because people were spreading rumors about her because of this.

In an article from Soompi, Kitti B quoted, “On the outside, I acted like I was fine, but honestly, I felt very angry and ashamed. I recently realized that it wasn’t right to just let it go. I feel hurt, stressed, and traumatized, yet people have been mocking me and spreading rumors. I will no longer put up with this.” What I underline is the main reason why KittiB sued Black Nut for defamation and she has the right to. Even though there were people involved spreading rumors about her based on Black Nut's lyrics, KittiB was better off suing him instead of those people who spread those rumors.

I disagree! He never lied about her, he didn't even say he had sex with her; he just said (in a very disgusting way) that he used to find her hot but realised after she appeared on TV that she wasn't as good looking as he thought. THAT'S IT. If she can't handle insults from rappers then why the hell is she in the rap game! She's said just as bad stuff about other rappers, I used to be fan but this is so hypocritical. I don't think he should've said that about her but go to jail HELL NO! That's a violation of his human rights, people should have the right to say their opinion even if it's bad as long as they don't lie or incite physical harm onto others.

Like you're all on talk about "he was problematic since _" um no he wasn't but if you're going to pull that card she is no damn victim herself. If he's as bad as you say he is, then she is JUST as bad or even worse. There are literally worse lyrics in songs than this.

ONE YEAR in JAIL for BLACK NUT seems a LOT of time. Maybe BLACK NUT can still COURT appeal this ruling.

There is NOT say PHYSICAL VIOLENCE involved here, is one observation that I have it.

NOT saying that I like BLACK NUT much. Just wondering about the LENGTH of JAIL TIME.

I am recalling like the IRON (Rapper) situation with his now ex-GF.

Where some NASTY PHYSICAL VIOLENCE toward HER was involved.

And NOT much JAIL TIME (any?) came from the COURT decisions related to IRON (Rapper).

This is not about dissing in hip-hop anymore. She went on record more than once to express how his 'dissing' is making her uncomfortable and asked him to stop - since the comments were sexually explicit. But he not only ignored her request, he continued and make fun of it.

So yes, BN has every right to his own opinion no matter how disgusting it is and KB has every right to sue his ass off for it. You want to say things, you better be prepared to take responsibility for it should it come back and bit you in the a$$

Oh yeah, oh motherfucking yeah, that's what Black Nut definitely deserves for talking about KittiB like that in his song. And regardless of whether he has made any nasty gestures during his recent concert performance of the song or not, let's just expect him to NOT perform that song in concert anymore in the forseeable future. Plus, in addition to all of that, hopefully Black Nut will be extra careful with his choice of words in his songs from this very moment on going forward because if he dares himself to talk about another female rapper this way in another song, well then, it's definitely possible that he might get another lawsuit like this and go right back to jail. So ummm, yeah, he better be extremely careful from here on out.
