Recently, NCT and WayV member Hendery has been under fire as fans and netizens criticized the photos he posted on his Weibo

In the photos, Hendery is seen wearing a wig with a Jamaican Rastafari inspired headband and fake dreads while he is riding in a car.

this is so exhausting for me. how many times do black fans have to speak out about this stuff. and i’m sure he didn’t mean to offend anyone but that doesn’t really matter. our hair is not a joke or a costume
