Netizens debate about the double standard with Park Na Rae being canceled while male rappers rap freely about inappropriate sexual comments

AKP STAFF

Park Na Rae was recently under fire for her inappropriate sexual comments and actions on the YouTube show 'Hey Na Rae.'

Earlier last week, netizens found discomfort in Park Na Rae's actions on the second episode of the YouTube entertainment show. The comedian went on to show some inappropriate actions. In the episode, Park Na Rae took the toy's arm and put it between the legs to make it look like a penis.

Since the incident, many netizens took issue with Park Na Rae's action flooding the web portal with various criticisms about the comedian. Despite the show's production team posting an apology, netizens continued to direct their criticisms against Park Na Rae. In turn, the comedian decided to leave the YouTube show.

Recently, one netizen started a debate in an online community discussing the double standard on Park Na Rae and male rappers. The netizen stated that male rappers rap lyrics about sexual harassment against women all the time, and there is a double standard.


Netizens commented, "I feel like rappers are excluded from this criticism," "I mean, it was right for Park Na Rae to be criticized, but then all the other rappers singing about those things should be canceled too," "I don't think Park Na Rae was canceled. She only stopped coming out from the YouTube show. She's still on the other shows," "If rappers do something like that in front of women, then it's harassment. Park Na Rae did that in front of a man, so it's sexual harassment." "I think Park Na Rae was canceled only because she's popular," "Park Na Rae was definitely not canceled. She's still on all the popular cable shows," and "I think it's also the image of rappers."

Maybe it’s because I’m from the UK but to me, it seems like sex, sexual comments, jokes in korea are quite taboo. Even if your older than 21, it seems like you can’t make any sort of sexual comments which I don’t agree with. This is apart of normal life and shouldn’t be hidden- I’m not saying it should be announced but I feel like people should be able to talk about what they want to freely. I do agree that there is a line if this is a channel aimed at kids and teenagers and I agree that her action may have been a little over the line depending on the audience but anyone can watch anything on YouTube no matter what age so even if there was an age warning, I’m sure younger children would ignore this. I feel like sometimes people take things too seriously when things are just a joke.

The thing is Park Narae did this in show which audience are kids/teenagers...
and rappers can drop whatever they want on youtube, but youtube itself might set a "filter" and only adults can enter MV's etc.
