Rapper Comes Under Fire After “Liking” Ravi’s Apology Post On Instagram
Rapper DinDin is being criticized after liking Ravi‘s apology post on Instagram.
On April 11, Ravi admitted to charges of illegally evading his military obligations in court. After his trial, the artist uploaded an apology to Instagram.
Hello, this is Ravi.
First, I would like to apologize to all those that I have hurt.
Previously, while I delayed my enlistment after being assigned to civil duties, in order to promote, I learned that I could no longer delay enlistment.
At the time, because I was the only artist bringing in revenue, and due to the fulfillment of contracts signed before COVID-19 being delayed, I was desperate to delay enlistment in fear of the fee that would incur for violating the contracts.
Out of that desperation, I made a foolish decision, and once after my concerns for the agency and the contracts were resolved, I applied to fulfill my civic duties, and since October of last year, I have been fulfilling my military duties.
I would like to apologize to all the epilepsy patients and their families, as well as those who are faithfully carrying out their military duties, who were hurt by my decision, which I tried to justify to myself.
Also, to all those who I have hurt and to the fans who have supported me as much more than just a singer, I sincerely apologize for making you feel like all the times we’ve spent together is destroyed.
I wanted to be someone you can be proud of, but I am ashamed to show you this embarrassing side of me. I believe I was someone who was unworthy of the love you’ve shown me for so long.
Lastly, to prevent even more damage to VIXX members due to my mistake, I have decided to withdraw from the group. I would like to thank and apologize to the members for 11 long years of being with someone who is lacking as me. I hope that the members’ precious efforts aren’t affected by me any longer.
I think I am someone who is lacking, with a lot to learn. I believe I should shoulder all the criticism thrown my way. The more you criticize me, the deeper I will learn.
I know that these sorry words won’t make my mistakes disappear. I will never forget this moment and will try to become a better person.
I sincerely apologize.
The rapper DinDin then liked the post, showing his support for Ravi. According to reports, netizens criticized the rapper for being “inappropriate” in light of Ravi’s controversy.
- “He’s an icon when it comes to being inappropriate.”
- “Read the room.”
- “He should’ve just stayed still.”
- “Why is he showing off the fact he’s close to Ravi?”
- “This is so inappropriate.”
DinDin and Ravi became close while filming KBS’s 2 Days & 1 Night. It seems DinDin wanted to show his loyalty to his friend during his time of need.
Previously, Prosecutors asked the court to sentence Ravi to two years in prison. You can read about it in the article below.
