    wheres the context to this though. all i can get from that picture is he smeared his lips and then someone said doesnt it look like kunta kinte or whoever. did he intend to look like that? if not this is just complete bullshit. the kunta persons lips stand really out in that poster or whatever so its just a thing to memorise him by. did they go and say "hey you look like a black person now!". no they didnt.
    if he intended to impersonate that kunta person then once again, its just a very prominent feature of his face. yall need to stop looking for racism where there isnt any

    i mean i get it. but do you really think he meant that in a bad way. like hes said all black people have fuller lips etc. was he planning on smearing his lips to look like kunta kinte or did he smear his lips and then someone said it.

    That doesn't matter. It was ignorant as hell, regardless of whether he meant it in a bad way or not.

    So are we all gonna close an eye on ignorance becaus OpPa DiDn’T mEaN iT???

    so next time something like this happens we all have excuses ready? Why can’t you just accept that he was ignorant and educate him? Ignorance is not an excuse

    People are just looking for racism. This hypersensitivity makes everything worse. There doesn't need to be all of this racial tension. Can't we all just get along.

    I’m sure Chen will apologise..
    He was just so damn ignorant about the issue behind the character and the history..
    I’m sure he will listen and understand the problem and apologise because an exol is going to explain it to him through a letter soon in the fansign
    The only issue I’m having is how people are turning it into an army vs. exo-l bullshit like it’s so uncalled for and baseless

    Side note: I’m not black but people on this site are so quick to turn down issues like these everytime they happen... at least try to understand from their point of view because it’s not the first time things like mocking black people had occurred in Korea..

    No one's looking for racism, what he did was wrong, period. It needs to be called out.

    Nobody is looking for anything. If you don’t think what he did is wrong you need to be looking for some damn glasses because you are blinded by biasness

    Nope. Equally insensitive, but Wendy has lived in the West and should know better. They both (and other idols) could use some diversity and sensitivity training.
