Jay Park's response:

The incident occurred just a day before on October 18, when K-pop fans discovered that an MMA meme Instagram account used Jonghyun's funeral photo to make a joke after the Korean Zombie lost a UFC with Brian Ortega.


Brian Ortega has a history with Jay Park as he was accused of slapping him back in March.

Many felt uncomfortable that the Instagram owner who thinks they're edgy used the photo in such a way and have been leaving comments requesting for the photo to be taken down. However, these K-pop fans were met with racist and offensive comments.

Then the individual shared an Instagram story claiming that Jay Park had directed messaged them saying he supports their actions. However, after finding out about this happening, Jay Park expressed his anger and stated that he does not support this individual.

Still, many K-pop fans and netizens are continuing to express their anger at the Instagram account holder, and the account has not deleted the post. In fact, the account has posted more content mocking K-pop fans.

Is it that hard for people to respect Jonghyun and the kpop community? Let Jonghyun rest in peace, he's already been through a lot.

Jay Park would never agree with this type of content and even less from an deceased industry peer.

In general, this is a really bad taste meme even if it wasn't kpop tbh
