Jay Park trends worldwide as issue over styling one's hair in locs & cultural appropriation resurfaces in K-Pop once again

Singer/rapper Jay Park trended worldwide on Twitter on January 30, as a heated debate over cultural appropriation of locs arose once again in the world of K-Pop. 

It seems the issue first stemmed from Jay Park's most recent Instagram post, sharing a clip of his H1GHRMUSIC artist Avatar Darko rapping to "Truly Unruly". 

Seeing the post, some netizens chose to point out that the issue of non-black people wearing locs in his/her hair for style is still an uncomfortable topic in today's culture, as well as an incessant, negative issue in the world K-Pop. 

However, when more and more netizens added on their comments of agreement to this criticism, Jay Park chose to resond as follows:

Netizens did not receive Jay Park's "response" well, and took to Twitter to further criticize the singer/rapper's attitude. Some commented, "Jay Park said listening to K-Pop is cultural appropriation hhhhh pls he's dumb dumb", "Bruh why is Jay Park like thissssssss I was just starting to listen to his music", ".... can management shut Jay Park up already", "Dog Jay Park, you really messed up man", "Jay Park saying 'pls educate me' but clearly not wanting to be educated ok", "Jay Park said non Koreans shouldn’t listen to Korean music yet home boi wants to do a world tour...", "So do I have to delete all my Jay Park music", "Jay Park should’ve sat down and ate his food", "A lot of Jay Park fans are black so he really is out here biting the hand that feeds him", etc. 

As seen above, Jay Park has currently deleted all previous comments from his latest Instagram post featuring Avatar Darko.

"Jay Park said non Koreans shouldn’t listen to Korean music yet home boi wants to do a world tour..." this one gotta be the most ridiculous comment ever. Jay Park f**king said that AS A F**KING EXAMPLE it's not like he MEANT it smh. So people, let's take a lesson from this and don't forget to read something and understand it completely first before making comments out of nowhere.

That's besides the point. The lesson is that Jay is saying black people listening to kpop is the same thing as him profiting off of black culture while there are literally Koreans still doing blackface in Korea. Korean's who think dreads are dirty because Cjamm's nasty ass went on live television and said he didn't wash his damn hair (which is something that black ppl do because our hair ain't gon fall out). Also, for him or anyone to insinuate that I'm a Koreaboo for simply partaking in Korean music is absolutely absurd when it's that same fucking music that extrapolates from black culture every day. So ain't NO ONE finna tell me what I can or can not listen to. Simple as that.

No, he isn't. People are hating over a multicutural hairstyle commonly associated with the black community. He basically called that just as stupid as stating non asians are appropriating Korean culture by listening to kpop because they "don't understand the struggle" Koreans go through.


"while there are literally Koreans still doing blackface in Korea."


Which is irrelevant to this just like Cjamm's comment.

Bitch. Don't tell us what we should or should not get offended by. I'm sorry I didn't realize I could only be offended if I was being shot in the street.


Also, this is an invasive issue. First of all, our styles have cultural and historical significance. We style our hair this way because it is the NATURAL way to maintain it. And then because we do som we are criminalized, discriminated, and have even been killed of said things. Bc it'd deemed unprofessional, nasty, and simply not adhering to conventional beauty standards. It's really that simple but y'all just refuse to see the reality because...... y'all hate negroes. And that's tea.


Also to all the dumbfucks saing "ermahgawd tHe CeLtIcS aNd ViKinGs AlSo dId it sooonncsenkenfva". Y'all are some uneducated punks. First of all, those weren't dreads. White hair just clumps up when nasty hoes don't wash it. Not the same as our black dreads. Also, are the fuckin celtics being systematically persecuted over their hairstyles? Shut the fuck up. Goofies. All of you.

Honey, it's 2019. Get the fuck over it having "cultural and historical significance", NONE of you wear it for either of those reasons.

Also, the Greeks and Indians were the first to be documented as having locs, neither of them black. Maybe YOU should educate yourself and get that huge ass chip off your shoulder and stop being offended of A NON ISSUE.


Wasting your time being offended over hair rather that actually being offended over shit that matters, like the fact that Flint, Michigan (who has a high African-American population) STILL HAVE NO DRINKING WATER after nearly 5 years.

Get your prioritises straight.


p.s. I also find it hilarious that you instantly resorted to a personal attack. Really showing your maturity and fitting right into the steryotype.

Again with this cultural appropriation bullshit...

It's always funny when these guys get pissed because they think their "culture" is embedded into a fu**ing hairstyle, while at the same time they happily use some actual culture like language, technology, clothing, architecture, infrastructures, utilities, literature, food and anything else that might come to mind that obviously wasn't originated at their alleged latitudes.

So, stop using the Net, wear only a penis-sheath, live into a mud hut and then you can talk. In swahili, of course.

"Actual culture" don't you dare downplay black culture when that's the culture that non-blacks have been stealing for centuries. Most American culture has been stolen and influenced from black culture. Korean music extrapolates from black culture every day. Stop fucking your cousin and go read a fucking book, you racist fuck.


And if you didn't want us to speak English, maybe your ancestors (your whiteness is seeping out so I can tell) shouldn't have kidnapped, raped, and pillaged most of Africa. I'd tell you to go to hell, but we're already there and you people are the Devil.

"Worldwide" on a social media platform frequented by mental juveniles who spend most of their time getting outraged and starting shit. I stopped using it years ago because you can't just have fun and ignore drama on there, you're expected to respond to every stupid thing your social group is shrieking about and retweet the same angry tweets as them. I bet most of the people whinging about this don't have the faintest idea why they're doing it, they are just so trained to respond to things they know they have to be outraged about they've convinced themselves the arguments for why make sense.

Right, and closest thing to cultural appropriation is saying dreads is black only. You have to erase so much of human history for that to be so. Dreads predate the 20s, and to be honest I think we should appreciate the history of hair over the years. From practicality, fashion, religous and/or statement.

The whole dreads thing pisses me off. Dreads have history in every culture it's not just a black thing -_- it's so annoying. People also don't realize they cry cultural appropriation over everything, simply breathing another cultures air. Wouldn't that be segregation? Since their mindset is "if you aren't that culture gtfo, stop culturally appropriating." That's 100% segregation, and they are legitimately segregating themselves from EVERYONE. The whole Cultural Appropriation thing doesn't bother me, it's people who spill bs out of their mouths and don't think before speaking. THAT'S what bothers me. How can you argue and get mad when you don't even use your brain? I don't get it! (Not you, the pressed people who think their opinion matters but ONLY their opinion matters).

This should only be an issue and considered cultural appropriation if he glued fake dreads to his head like some idols have in the past (trying to purposely be trendy). Growing locs or dreads is a long and tedious process that not many would bother to do if they didn't admire the style or respect its origin. This isn't exactly a hairstyle that you do on a whim. It takes a lot of patience and care. I personally don't feel like Jay was out of line.

Glued on locs are certainly problematic in my opinion. Its extremely inauthentic to see someone not bother to take the time to go through the growing process, yet they still want the "cool" factor to apply. It's even more inauthentic when a stylist decides to glue that shit to an idols head for 4 minutes because they want to portray a "rastafarian" vibe while prancing around on stage. Growing locs or dreads is a dedicated process and should not be simply thrown onto someone's head ESPECIALLY when you are not a person of color. It comes off as a mockery and its very disingenuous. Just to be clear, I don't have an issue with anyone growing dreads or locs, I have an issue with people pretending to do so. Either be real about it or leave it alone.

I just don't understand what's all the fuss about? because of a certain hairstyle that originate from a certain group of people? I mean, a lot of rock artists have sported dreadlocks like Korn, AXL, Marilyn Manson & Slipknot. Even rappers/artists in my country (I am Asian by the way) have also sported dreadlocks. It's a really cool hairstyle & I don't think it's an inappropriate fashion or culture in the world of Kpop. Even Rie Hata, the famous japanese choreographer sported dreadlocks. What Jay was trying to say was people criticized about this shit as if it's inappropriate for non Asian to listen to Kpop (which isn't the case as music is universal). I am not a Jay Park fan but I get what his point.

I have no issue with people adopting aspects of black culture so long as : a. They give credit to where it originates, b. they do not credit another culture for those aspects, c. They do not try to use these aspects to imitate/impersonate/make fun of Black people (i.e. "I'm the blackest non-black person you'll ever meet because I like to wear box braids" and this is something I have heard before btw). As long as those bounds aren't overstepped it is chill.

So obviously a lot of these hating netizens are just dumb and can't understand English. Jay Park is pointing out that saying no one but blacks can wear dreds or perform hip hop is the same as someone saying no one but Koreans can speak Korean or enjoy KPop.

He's RIGHT, babies. Cultural appropriation is a ridiculous thing used as it is right now. People don't even understand what it means LOL The real problematic thing is 'cultural misappropriation' BTW. The only time copying someone else's culture is wrong is when you either MOCK it or try to say it's YOURS (you know, like plagiarism).

But stupidity reigns on the internet right now :(

BTW dreds have been worn thru out history all over the world, by any people with tight curly hair especially. VIKINGS had dreds, dolts. I don't think you can get much 'whiter'. I would truly love to see one of these obsessed little whiners go up to a real Viking berserker (yeah, time-traveling here) and complain about his hair LOL LOL LOL

People who talk about cultural appropriation rarely know what culture is. It's not connected to our biology. It's something that we create and acquire in interaction with others. No culture is created in a bubble, but the more anthropologists study it, the more it's confirmed that all culture is the result of borrowing from others. They call it cultural diffusion. There's at least four major problems with the idea of "cultural appropriation". The term implies:


1. That extant cultural differences are precious and worth preserving at great cost. Culture is created as a result of interaction with others and is therefore fleeting and changes over time. Cultural appropriation assumes that whatever cultural expressions that exist now must be preserved as if they are of special importance. This is also very divisive. This thinking leads to the assumption that certain cultural artefacts must belong to certain groups which only enforces the view that we are divided into groups and limits our interaction with each other.

2. That cultural artefacts can be owned. Problem is, culture is not something that one can own. It's just information. One can't lock it away and claim it, since the artefact is the result of borrowing from others in the first place.

3. That the bounds of ownership break cleanly along racial lines. This should be obvious. Where does one draw the line between what belongs to a culture and what doesn't and which culture is responsible for a certain idea and which isn't?

4. That the value of minority cultures is somehow contingent upon how members of dominant cultures treat them. Believing that a minority culture is diminished if a majority culture handles it does not empower the minority culture. This thinking makes it look weak. A minority culture doesn't become worse if others engage with it.

I think Jay Parks comments were totally misinterpreted. No where did I read that black people shouldn't listen to Kpop. I totally get the point he tried to make, and I think if the comment is read literally instead of drawing conclusions, you'd see there was no malice intented. However, the negativity I'm reading here is filledwith malice and barely concealed hatred aimed at keeping people in the same separate state of minds they've historically been. We need this about as much as we need that border wall. Also, if African Americans stop listening to or buying Korean music, I seriously doubt they'll go hungry. Face it guys, we spend more money on hair products than anybody else. Ironic considering this all started because of hair. Is this a priority for us as a people to even be comment about. Hardly.

They proved the point exactly that they only care about themselves and no one else and thing everything is a problem when he mentioned listening to Korean music. IT WAS A POINT. THE POINT WAS IF YOU SO CALLED BELIEVE A HAIRSTYLE THAT LEGITIMATELY HAS HISTORY IN EVERY CULTURE IS CULTURAL APPROPRIATION THEN BEING NON KOREAN AND LISTENING TO KOREAN MUSIC WORKS THE SAME WAY TOO. THAT'S THE POINT. But then again they don't care unless it's them. It's so bullshit and one sided.

I think many of the people reading Jay Park's response have taken the comment out of context. He was comparing the ideology of cultural appropriation, that a person who is none black is not allowed to wear locs or certain styles. He compared that to being a Korean person saying non-Koreans are not allowed to like K-Pop because they are not Korean... He is stating he has never disrespected the black community. He is educating people on dropping the silliness and becoming a world united. Music unites us all and Jay Park is a great example of an Korean-American crossing the ocean to make it in Korea, successfully.

You can't tell black people to not listen to Korean music which has extrapolated from... dun dun dun... black music.

It seems as though you failed to read or understand my comment and better yet, Jay Park's comment. No one has stated that black people cannot listen to Korean music. Please explore reading comprehension options in your school. I am an English graduate who enjoys listening to K-Pop and can help you. Thank you for replying to my comment.

Everyone on this website is a fucking idiot and has probably never spoken to a black person in their lives. Just say "I hate niggers" and go.

Jay needs to apologize. Simple as that and some of y'all really think y'all have the right to excuse behavior that you know nothing about. You obviously don't know the cultural and historical significance of black hair. I think some of y'all don't even know basic humanity. Get off your fucking computers for once and go into the real world. Go to school and get an education because the pure idiocy is astounding.

If I get banned from this website for going off on y'all, it will be a job well done. And I just want to reiterate: you're all fucking idiots.

The people who had an issue weren't black. I know this because (1) black people could care less about how someone choose to style their hair. (2) black people don't listen to jay park or K-pop in general, there MIGHT be a few scattered here and there but as a collective group -NO. When was the last time you saw a black person (in the U.S. or anywhere) at a k-pop concert - never, not even at kcon the people I saw were mainly Asian and white. I am sick and tired of non- black people complaining about something they THINK is a black issue when it's really not.

Are you black?


1. Black people do care... My ancestors have been persecuted for the simple matter is hair, so no I'm not finna let these little yt and Asian boys wear our natural styles in order to look cool.


2. What are you talking about? Jay Park's fan base is mostly black women. Also, I've been to multiple K-pop concerts in my years and have seen hundreds of black people (including my friends and I). I've even been to Korea and met multipe Black people while I was there.

I think the subject here is not about cultural appropriation , we are overseeing the shade that he threw to black people on his comment, maybe he could have find a better way to express his point of view which I consider valid but he could have used a different simile.

i think jay park is a bitch who never takes responsibility for what he does, he thinks he’s untouchable lol. i’m not a fan in a slightest.


but i do agree a hairstyle is a hairstyle. and i’m not going to point out that many different cultures and races have had dreads since forever because yall KNOW this already. just get over it.


and btw, trying to tell anything to a guy with literally NO morals is not going to work so if you got offended then save your breath

I don't particularly like Jay Park, and I definitely don't think he's smart (sorry), but those comments are something else. David Dunning and Justin Kruger would love this.

What he said is fine. But he's 31 years old, why you tweeting such non-sense stuff. You can't win against the internet. Just don't say anything because whatever you say will be used aginst you

If you don't know about cultural appropiation then look for it and inform yourself. The message is nice and all, but this is a large issue

It's interesting Jae protected himself by admitting before the criticism started that if yall think he's a dumbass for his comment then he will accept it. Hmm interesting choice of words, he already knew he was about to get called out because he is still not fully grasping the concept of cultural appropriation and why it still easily offends thousands of people worldwide. I love you Jay but you still need to educate yourself man.

I find it funny how non black ppl got soo much to say when ya’ll don’t even know the half of what black ppl go through. It’s frustrating asf seeing these kpop artists continuously take from black culture but honestly speaking what have they’ve given back ???? I don’t see them saying anything when black ppl is getting killed for no reason or whenever we’re going through something . It’s considered “ghetto, unclassy” whenever a black person does what is apart of our culture but OH? Let these idols do it && “oppa’s so swagy, oppas so handsome” . It pissed me off hearing about how Zico begged to have dreads but he didn’t even know the origin of it, how it came to be, just because it looked cool smh as much as I love kpop, they aren’t any different from the racist white ppl who have taken from us but never gave anything back .

I'd say YOU don't know the 'origins' of dreads yourself. VIKINGS had dreads. Celts did. Melanesians, Native Americans, Australian aborigines all had dreads. It's one of the most ancient of hairstyles.

You're an idiot if you can't understand the historical and cultural significance that dreads have for black people. Plus, white people not washing their hair resulting in it clumping up is different from the natural maintenance style that black people implement. And the fucking vikings aren't losing jobs and their livelihood over their hair. Also, most African-Americans are Native American and Australian aboriginals are black. Read a history book.

Jay Z also worked with a pedo (R Kelly). And this was after R Kelly was accused of being a pedo and after he 100 percent definitely married a 15 year old (Aaliyah). Jay Z also dated Beyonce when she was underage (17). There's also rumors that he dated Foxy Brown when she was 16 and Rihanna when she was 15.

Go off sis. And the fact that this comment had been downvoted to -5, but the "best" comments are literally non-black people invalidating black black culture and livelihood. Someone even said to go back to our mud huts and speak Swahili, but was upvoted 16 time. Allkpop is filled with racist idiots.
