Wheesung under fire for making a violent comment about junior singers and apologizing in a mocking tone


Singer Wheesung is under fire for his Instagram posts. 

On February 1, Wheesung shared a post showing several junior singers preparing for his upcoming concert. In the caption, he wrote, "They'll singer better than this when I beat them with a bat."

A netizen criticized Wheesung's violent comment, and said, "How can you say hitting with a bat and what not even if it's a joke? You probably can't say this if you've been watching the news lately." Wheesung fired back, "I am watching the news."

Wheesung's reply led to more criticism. In response to the hate, Wheesung made another post, stating, "I have deleted the post~ (No more) Satire or jokes, I'll be uploading just photos and performance videos from now on. I'm sorry for making you uncomfortable often ^^"

His apology led to even more anger. Netizens claim Wheesung's apology was mockery and insincere, they continued to heavily criticize the singer for his rudeness. 

Ultimately, Wheesung decided to make his Instagram account private.

you cant use violence in a comedic way.

there is trainees out there getting molested and beaten its not wise to joke that way

but also it doesnt have to blow up to this point and to make his acc private it was a bad joke he apologized move on and stop throwing hate, i feel like knetizens get thrilled to latch on others honestly

Lol wtf... even if people thought the joke was in bad taste considering recent events, it was clearly a joke, and a pretty mild one
