On May 23, GOT7 members Jackson, Youngjae, and Jinyoung broadcasted on V live to interact with fans before their M Countdown comeback-stage for their newest release ECLIPSE.
While reading the comments a netizen commented, "So funny, when Jackson speaks in Korean still sounds Ching".
Allegedly its thought that Ching refers to Ching Chong, which is typically used by non-Asians towards Eastern Asians.
Jackson handled the situation well and responded seriously,
"You know what? No negative comments okay? Let's stay positive, let's show a lot of love. Let's love more than hate, alright?"
Since then Jackson is currently trending at #1 on Weibo hot search for "Wang Jiaer responds to racist comment"
This has caused people including Go Fridge, a Chinese variety program with Jackson as MC, to comment on this matter on Weibo.
"[WEIBO] 190523 Go Fridge
Let's embrace the world with a more positive attitude and more love like @JacksonWang852 does!
Hope that everyone can spend every day happily~ Goodnight"
The post trending has already gained 140 million views and 33.000 comments.
