While the challenge itself was cute and just downright adorable, a consequential tweet has triggered backlash from ReVeluvs.

A fan of NCT WISH posted a screencap of the TikTok where Irene’s face was hidden behind an emoji. The Tweet itself talks about how one of the members, SION, is a ReVeluv. OP points out that during the TikTok, he looks at Irene while Yushi looks towards the camera.

EXO-L Yushi was looking at the camera, trying to look pretty, ReVeluv SION takes a quick glance.

While the caption itself seems harmless, the emoji on Irene’s face has not sat well with Red Velvet fans. They claim the action is another example of subtle misogyny from boy group fans — who sometimes don’t like seeing their favorite idols next to female stars.

Some fans have reversed the face hiding, quoting the original post with a picture of the two NCT members’ faces being hidden instead.

Meanwhile, the majority have called OP’s action simply disrespectful.
