Last week BTS received racist comments on an Australia TV show. MONSTA X has now become another K-pop group who received rude comments from an Australian broadcast.
A couple of days ago, MONSTA X became a hot topic on an Australian Radio when the host was being rude, disrespectful and unprofessional. The host, Angus O’Loughlin, made a comment on the radio show called Trending Twenty “ French Montana still has “no idea” who MONSTA X is” calling them MONSTER X (and not MONSTA X), and comparing them with BTS.
The host also said: “If I was a [The] Voice mentor, I wouldn’t turn my chair. Let me tell you a bit about them though. There’s 7 of them, just like BTS. They were formed on a reality television show in 2015 and this song features French Montana – who I can guarantee you had no idea who MONSTER X were and probably still has no idea and I would presume he just took the paycheck for his 29 second verse. Literally, it’s 29 seconds. MONSTER X featuring French Montana, the song is ‘WHO DO U LOVE?'”.
Watch the video to catch the tone of the host in the video uploaded by a fan on Twitter.
Here are some comments from Monbebes (Monsta X's fandom)
Currently, MONBEBEs all around the world are demanding an apology from the host and radio broadcast. However, no statement has been made regarding this issue. What do you think about this situation about k-pop groups being insulted on various radio stations?
