Joseph Kahn is a Korean-American director who’s worked on multiple films and music videos for top artists, such as Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Maroon 5, Britney Spears and more.
He’s recently come under fire for a series of Tweets that attacked BTS about their appearance. He claimed that they “all have plastic surgery“, and shamed them for wearing lipstick.
He continued on by claiming Asian-Americans believe Asian men are being “feminized” by wearing lipstick. To make matters worse, he wrote the “Asian” response in a stereotypical manner with poor grammar use.
He also shared a web article claiming that South Korean men are getting plastic surgery done to look more like a “pretty boy”.
He was soon criticized by K-Pop fans and netizens alike for his offensive Tweets.

Why are you like this? I’m really disappointed. I hope Taylor won’t work with you again.

As a response, he tweeted a sarcastic explanation claiming he “loves BTS” with the photo of Mötley Crüe, an American heavy metal band.
Despite the criticisms he’s received for his Tweets, Joseph Kahn stood by his comments by telling the offended fans to “suck a d*ck“.
