Chaeyeon is super sweet, she's been through a lot but always stayed nice and humble. She was my fave during produce and i was so happy when she made it.

I know that when people do this they genuinely mean well, but honestly this just comes across as kinda patronizing from the disabled person's point of view. They probably don't want everyone they meet to be crying over their fate, they would prefer just to be treated like any other ordinary human being.

And just to be clear, I don't think that Chaeyeon has done anything wrong here, the interaction with the girl was super cute, I just think that the crying part shouldn't be singled out as something to be praised specifically, which is something that I've seen people do in the past multiple times.
