Would you still stan your bias if you found out they were secretly racist?

    For ex, they were never problematic and never said anything racist but in private you found out they had racist beliefs and preferences.

    I would still listen to their songs if they made good music. After all I’m here all for music. But I wouldn’t personally support them/spend money for them/watch their varieties and stuff because then I would know those were all fake.

    No, definitely not.

    Generally speaking, I find that the "scandals" which dog Kpop idols are ridiculous and overblown. But racism, sexism and homophobia are all things I take very seriously. If I were to find out that someone I liked had such beliefs, I'd definitely stop following them, regardless of how I felt about their music. It's just a dealbreaker.

    dropped :(

    one of the biggest things i always like in an idol is like sweetness and sincerity (to the extent i kno them)
    and finding out they have racist would just leave such a bad aftertaste in my mouth i wouldn't be able to look at the same way again

    As a bias, NOPE.
    But for their creation, i will continue following even not as a bias.
    Honestly I don't care too much, those Idols even not my friends though! And because.. In reality, Racism is everywhere!!

    No.

    It would be hard to "idolize" someone with such a glaring flaw of character.


    Another interesting question (and the one I initially thought you might ask) was would you still be friends with someone if you knew they were racist.

    That's a much more tricky question in my opinion as it is very intimate in scope.

    Idols are third parties we have no intimate relationship with, so it costs us relatively little to "drop" them upon discovery of some character flaw.


    Friends and family are much harder in that respect.

    For instance I have family members who are racist. Though I do not agree with their viewpoints it's much harder to say, well I just won't deal with them or love them because they're racist.

    More easily said than done.

    For humans are multidimensional and can be more then their most problematic views.

    It's an interesting question.

    One with no simple answers.

    As long as he's not prejudiced against my race I'd be OK with that.

    Unstan fast as fuck, throw them into a recycle bin.
    As much I say that humans are problematic, you can do some horrible shit but you ain't gonna discriminate someone just because of their skin color.

    they wouldn't be my bias nor would I still stan, but if I still like the music, I would still listen.

    Definitely no.
    I hate racism; in the past I was bullied because of racists... racism is definitely a no-go for me..

    If theyre racist towards white people then i wont mind as much, as long as they don't act on it.

    Towards other races then no. Not even close.
