Following f(x)’s Amber’s message in light of the racist TMZ coverage of EXID’s KMF airport arrival, 2PM’s Taecyeon has also made a response.
On May 4th, Taecyeon took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the controversial video clip that has earned itself a plethora of negative comments. His statement echoes the sentiment shared by Amber as well as many netizens in their scorn for the recent TMZ video. Vocalist Roy Kim also expressed his agreement by sharing Amber’s tweet with an “Amen to this.”
Taecyeon’s post reads: “When they make fun of a person’s accent do they not realize that said person is able to fluently speak another language? ㅋㅋㅋ The mentality behind making fun of someone who greeted fans in their own language is just wow…”
한사람이 이상한 억양을 가지고있다고 놀릴때 그사람은 아예 다른 언어를 완벽구사할 수 있다는걸 모르는건가?ㅋㅋㅋ 미국갔더니 많은 팬들이 와줘서 영어로 답해준걸 놀린다는 멘탈이 그냥 와우… https://t.co/Xey22BboXk
