Sean Dolan's death leads to mockery from K-pop fans


Sean Dolan, father of the popular influencers Ethan and Graylon Dolan, passed away on January 19, 2019, after a long struggle against cancer. 

However, Sean still can't rest peacefully due to a few K-pop fans. 

In mid 2018, the Dolan Twins were featured on a YouTube video uploaded by Emma Chamberlain. In the video, the twins made a satirical joke in which they passed out onto chairs, referencing how K-pop idols are commonly overworked without enough rest. The twins were criticized for the joke, and K-pop fans demanded an apology. 

After Sean's death, a barrage of tweets from K-pop fans mocked him, tweeting things like "remember when the dolan twins laughed about kpop idols passing out? who's alive now".

On the other end of the spectrum, many K-pop fans have apologized for their fandom's actions and state that the views of these mocking K-pop fans are only a minority and don't represent the entire community.

    Yeah what they did wasn't nice. BUT THEIR FATHER HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT! And he's dead now! How heartless can you be?! Making fun of the death of someone is disgusting and they should really be ashamed

    The worst thing besides these "fans" being genuine pieces of shit, is that these few people don't realize the impact that their actions have on the community. Some people already think k-pop fans are toxic as fuck and while some are, it's not all of us. It just gives us all a bad rep. Smh. I don't even like the Dolan twins at all. I dislike their content but does that warrant them being mocked cause their dad died of a disease that can happen to any of us? Not at all. If it was the other way around and their fans were mocking a k-pop star whose parent died of cancer, you'd be up in arms. Grow up, guys. It's 2019, it's time to be better. 🤦

    This is literally the most disrespectful thing I've ever seen. I've never been ashamed to be a part of the kpop community but this has taken it so far. People make mistakes and he probably received a lot of backlash and learned from it. Their father passed from cancer. Their father.

    What the fuck is wrong with people. Kpop fans are becoming sick and disgusting. No humanity left. He is Someone's father , someone's husband , someone's son. Have some dignity people. Do you even know what is the feeling to not have a father. And watch your father dying .fuck. no one can know how it feels. It fucking hurts . My father also died when I was very young. Growing up, without father, seeing my mom struggling. Life is unfair, but mostly humans are monsters.

    absolutely disgusting behaviour! just because they made a joke about Kpop doesn't mean they deserve to get treated like this, THEIR Father doesn't deserve this! I'm sure our idols would be just as disgusted, how can people do this especially when someone is grieving i think people forget how to act human sometimes!

    Such disrespect and lack of compassion. We all have or will at some point experience loss and for people to make fun of someone grieving is cruel. As for the asshole who literally went down this comment section and downvoted people who were giving their condolences and calling out those responsible for the nasty comments, you are disgusting. I seriously just upvoted almost every comment here that was in no way shape or form disrespectful.

    So... some guys I've never heard of who are famous on the Internet made an asshole joke, and then some idiots who aren't even famous anywhere made asshole jokes in retaliation...


    This nonsense would have been better left on Twitter to sink into oblivion. It's a rotten time to choose to get back at someone who pissed you off, but I doubt these guys are focusing on checking replies from randoms on Twitter at the moment, all this hand-wringing and screencapping just makes it more likely they will see it later. And why are totally unrelated people feeling ashamed on behalf of a bunch of children whose parents don't police their online behaviour well enough and adults with the emotional maturity of children? Kpop isn't a religion; you share an interest with these people, you aren't responsible for or representative of their actions in any way. Like Hitler I'm a fan of Beethoven but that doesn't mean I feel obliged to apologise for the atrocities of WWII.

    I say we stop fucking joking around and instead of witch hunting idols, we should start witch hunting fans who does not know when and when not to joke about a certain scenario. I can't believe these people ask for fucking respect for the fandom when in fact they don't even have any. Poor Sean, rest in peace.

    I'm sorry but I'm not only pissed someone found the need to make an article about it but I also still side with the Dolan's and the educated fans. 1) they didn't MOCK people for passing out 2) even so THEY APOLOGIZED. There is a HUGE FUCKING DIFFERENCE between someone quote unquote mocking someone for passing out and you making fun of someone's fucking DEATH. TWO VERY DIFFERENT THINGS. You cannot bash them for mocking someone and then go ahead and make fun of someone's death. That's contradicting and extremely hypocritical.

    Yes you are correct SandraScarlet, they are overworked. How many times did Jungkook bendover in pain, trip, fall over the side of stairs, etc at the last awards show! Must have been all those"water spills" that caused all that pain and fatigue and not only him they all look exhausted. As hard as BTS work trying to put on a brave front it shows in their eyes how tired they are. They need a damn break same goes for other groups that work just as hard. It's really sad.

Isn't that even worse than what they did? I am literally disgusted and ashamed to be in the same fandom as you right now.. really hope the Dolan twins haven't seen any of those awful tweets. You should be ashamed of yourselves. May you rest in peace Sean, you will be missed.

    and i mean to be fair, they shouldn't be wishing death on anyone or making jokes about/celebrating anyone's death. the father didn't do anything so he obviously didn't deserve it, but say if people sent death threats to the sons, even though they made an idiotic joke, they wouldn't deserve to be told to die or w/e

    I'm not too sure which universe/space they came from. Why deny sth that's is always known to everyone, including Koreans? It's true that Kpop stars are always facing overworking and stressful environment. So if Kpop stars are not complaining, who are these Kpop fans to complain about?


    And maybe I am being stereotyping, but as an Asian myself, we don't show any disrespect to the dead; so I am wondering is these so-called Kpop fans somewhere from outerspace to make such rude comments!!!
