… Including three pictures of the idol wearing a t-shirt with a swastika.

The shirt features a famous image of Sex Pistols member Sid Vicious, a punk icon known for his “provocative” fashion, including wearing outfits with the swastika symbol. But despite the shirt not being associated with promoting Nazism, many netizens still felt uncomfortable that Chaeyoung was wearing a shirt with the symbol and asked her to delete the post.
