BamBam shows support for Lisa + talks racism against Thai K-pop idols

GOT7's BamBam showed support for Black Pink's Lisa

Recently, fans shared #RespectLisa tweets after the Thai idol was attacked with racist comments about her appearance after the 33rd Golden Disk Awards. 

In a recent interview with Thai media outlets, fellow Thai idol BamBam is asked if he is aware of the issue. BamBam replied, "Yes," and said, "I'm actually friends with Lisa noona so I already contacted her to give support."

He added, "It isn't a big deal actually because it originated from only a few people. Just like 10 people, so it won't impact Lisa noona and also because she has more people who love and support her."

BamBam also shared Lisa isn't too stressed about the issue. When asked if he also experienced such racist attacks, BamBam answered, "It's common for Thai idols," however added, "I just disregard it." BamBam explained he received racist attacks often in his rookie days but he tried to stay positive. 

You can watch his interview in the clip below.

They're the same age but he's always been calling her "Noona" because she was taller than him when they were kids. And it grew into a habit, so he always calls her "Noona".

Some people from the US are racist towards mexicans, and they are from the same continent. Racism has nothing to do with the continent, check the definition.

Racism is discrimination against someone of a DIFFERENT RACE. As in a group of asians can't be RACIST against another group of asians, they're both asians. Same RACE. It's not racism. It is discrimination of a kind, Xenophobia for example, but not racism

OK, I checked it in English, seems like we have different definitions, becasue in my language i's only about races.

Google traslated wiki:

Racism

It should not be confused with chauvinism - discrimination of people by nationality.

Racism - a set of ideological views, which are based on the provisions of the disparity of human races and the decisive influence of racial differences on history and culture.

It's the same definition in ANY language. it is a scientific term. There are only three races. You are completely right. It isn't racism. Disgusting but not racism. These little snowflakes who still need to finish kindergarten like to cry racism all the time but they have no knowledge whatsoever. It is sad and pathetic. One wonders where their parents are. Probably off sucking some d in a dark alley.

Are you stupid. One is korean and one is thai, they are different ethnicities. How is it nationalism when they aren't the same nationality, If bambam was born in korea and thus a thai korean , and other ethnic koreans discriminated against him because of his thai blood, that would be nationalism you dumb bimbo

Noona (and all the other honorific's) are technically more about respect than age, in Korea they are taught to respect those older than you which is where its most commonly used but it can be said about anyone whom you respect.

what you say is actually pretty racist lol

Being a french girl, british people are pretty racist toward french people... "french bashing".

We are all white, but this is still what we call "racism" : it's a form of discrimination against a group of human for being different physically or culturally.


I correct you : "not racism they are all humans it's discrimination"

"Racism" is actually an absurd term, it means we are from different races but we are all from the human race. This is a wrong term but it shows this dangerous and absurd ideology. Because this is not about "race" but about "ethnicity".

Why it is so that when knetizens who Mamamoo Hwasa (a Korean) for her inappropriate dressing, nobody care. But when Knetizens criticised Lisa (a Thai) it is deemed racism. Not only in Kpop industry, even in normal office situation. It is normal for a boss to scold a local, but become a racist when he scolded a foreign worker.

They are literally attacking Lisa for her features, saying they are too South East Asian, and telling her to go back to her country, that she doesn’t deserve what she has achieved in Korea. That’s literally xenophobic. Hwasa gets loads of hate, but they are sexist and colorist comments (which are just as wrong), not about her nationality.
