Fans ask an apology from aespa's Giselle over a video that allegedly showed her lip-syncing a racial slur

AKP STAFF

Fans are asking for clarification and an apology from aespa's Giselle over a video that allegedly showed her lip-syncing a racial slur. 

Following the 'Savage' Jacket behind the scenes video, the aespa member faced criticisms for allegedly lip-syncing a racial slur. The scene in question shows Giselle, Karina, and Ningning listening and vibing to SZA's "Love Galore". But fans noticed that Giselle mouthing the n-word in the lyrics, which quickly made its way around the Internet. 

Currently, aespa's label SM Entertainment has made the video in issue private, rather than issuing a clarification over the allegation. Following the label's action, many fans are now requesting an apology from the idol member. 

What do you think about the situation?

About lip sync the n-word. I totally understand why I as a white person should not use it. But I do not understand why artist keep putting it in the songs, if they now not only Black people listen to their music. If you do not want people to swear (F*ck, for example) during your songs do not include swaer words in the songs. People usually sing to the song automaticly, if they like it. I just do not understand.

Another day another useless drama story. Yall are angry at someone singing a song lyric, acting like she went on TV and started preaching about how black people are animals and all these ni--as should be killed.


Out of all things to get angry about u choose to be offended about someone singing along to a song. This will always be the dumbest thing I have seen.


Black artist : "I woke up in the morning and I greeted my nig--s".


Woke people: oh that's not a slur, he is just greeting his friends.



Dude just singing a song : I woke up in the morning and I greeted my nig--as.



Woke mob : oh how dare you, you should say sorry for hurting black people's feelings. U racist, apologise this instant.


What I am getting from all these people complaining is that it's not a slur if a black person puts it as song lyric but it becomes a slur when a person just sings along to the song and not directing this word to anyone but just singing a song. U being offended is not Giselles problem, those are ur issues to solve. Leave this girl alone and I hope SM don't make her apologise because that would be so dumb.
