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

USER CONTENT


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
