Netizens criticize that all the individuals attacking Monika for saying 'Poppin' instead of 'Popping' are cringe and cyberbullying


Earlier, Monika, the leader of the dance crew PROWDMON from 'Street Woman Fighter,' received backlash for allegedly sharing wrong information about a particular dance.

On the episode of JTBC's 'Knowing Bros' that aired recently, Monika appeared as a special guest with the other dance crew leaders. On the show, Monika gave a short lesson on dance moves and explained, "All movements that pop are called popping. The 'g' is removed from the 'ing' and is just called 'Poppin'. The house genre is classified as street dance and it is a genre that evolved from electronic music."

However, as soon as the episode aired, other street dancers took to their social media to criticize that Monika had shared wrong information about the dance move 'Popping.' These street dancers have been demanding Monika to correct herself and explained that the dance move 'Popping' is with an 'ing' and not 'Poppin.'

On November 24, it was revealed that 106 of these street dancers have been slandering Monika because she was accused of saying 'Poppin' instead of 'Popping.' One netizen listed up the usernames of these dancers in an online community and pointed out these "professional" dancers are attacking Monika when she had not explained anything wrong.

Other netizens joined the online community to also criticize these dancers and commented, "I thought the dance community would be really cool about things but they're really rotten, I hope they keep their pride of being underground dancers and stay underground," "this is such a cringe. Thanks for showing the site of cyberbullying," "They're too much, she didn't say anything wrong," "That's how you know they're jealous and have an inferiority complex," "You can say either 'Poppin' or 'Popping,' they're making a big deal for nothing," "The issue is they act like they're some professional or something but I've never heard of these dancers," "I wish you can reveal the dancer's name next to the user id," and "They're making such a big deal about something not so big."

Something this trivial doesn't call for slandering.

I... what? She got hate even for that? Are these people truly serious? Because they may be 'professional dancers' but they certainly lack knowledge when it comes to the language.

1. Word clipping, other forms of abbrivation etc are highly used in English words. You can find a shorter version of most words that have a lot of letters in them. It is not usually used in an academic, legal setting etc, but in everyday language it's common;

2. Popping and poppin' are the same, it's just a personal preference on which word you want to use. It's called the 'G-dropping' you drop the 'ng' sound for just 'n' like in sittin' (sitting), livin' (living), fishin' (fishing)... It's a form/way that's historically been used for ages and is grammatically correct. Like get your facts straight before sprouting nonsense. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️
