Jay Park “I hate you, but I don’t want my fans to hate you.”Responding to malicious controversy with calm
Singer Jay Park attended the “MIK Festival 2022” in London, England, and spoke directly about the malicious controversy that occurred after the performance.
Yesterday (3rd) in local time, JayPark posted a video of the festival on his SNS, saying, “London was so cool. And (during the performance) he shouted “Dua Lipa.” Because it’s in England, haha.”
Jay Park continued, “I know that hate me is a kind of trend, but please don’t hate my fans.” Perhaps you are a person who has more similarities than differences. “I will continue to make uncomfortable words about myself, but I hope everyone is happy and healthy, whether they hate me or like me,” he said. “Once again, thank you so much to the London audience.”
The controversy began when JayPark mentioned British singer Dua Lipa during the “MIK Festival 2022” stage.
An audience at the festival did not hear exactly who Jay Park mentioned because of the surrounding noise at the time, and shared the on-site video on his SNS. However, another overseas netizen, A, re-shared the video and claimed, “Jay Park made disparaging remarks about black people.”
As A’s claims spread through SNS, JayPark’s fans and the audience at the time refuted by sending messages such as “I was at the scene and Jay Park didn’t say that,” and “I said exactly ‘Dua Lipa’.”
In response, A emphasized freedom of expression and said, “That’s exactly what I heard. I don’t care what you say,” JayPark said, claiming that it was right that he made disparaging remarks about black people, and the war of words was exchanged several times with his fans.
Jay Park, who was aware of this situation, expressed his position on SNS, calming fans, saying, “I’m an adult, so I can handle it,” and the controversy ended.
Fans who saw his message saying, “JayPark is the best,” “I’m so happy to be your fan,” “It’s all because I’m jealous of you, so don’t care,” and “Don’t get hurt by malicious comments.” 코인파워볼
