I'm the type of person who has NO TOLERANCE for hate of any kind. I can't stand comments that are bigoted in any way, including comments that show racism.
I'm also the type of person who can see when someone is joking with his/her friends. It's NORMAL to joke and make fun of your friends. If you can't poke fun at them, you aren't really friends.
Rap Monsters comment was, in no way, racist. He was making a joking remark towards his friends. People are taking things waaay out of context, especially here in the U.S. We joke like this ALL OF THE TIME, but other people can't? That doesn't make any sense.
His comment was about as racist as my friends are when they make comments like THIS towards me. Is this racist? Absolutely not. Am I ever offended when someone says something like this towards me? Hell no. I am really pale. It's a fact. My friends are joking around because of that fact. Which is also a fact. ANYONE who takes comments like this too seriously obviously have no idea how friends are supposed to interact.
Conclusion? Everyone needs to calm their tits and stop complaining just for the sake of complaining. It's not nice to be jerks to others, even if they're idols (just because they're famous doesn't give you a special pass to be mean and expect to be forgiven) and saying such hateful, hurtful comments towards them is psychologically and emotionally damaging. Idols have feelings too. People need to respect that fact and be mindful of what they say.

I agree 100%. i Iove rapmon and support him. there was nothing wrong with what he said
EXACTLY MY POINT. If the members who were affected by it aren't annoyed by it, then these fans shouldnt either. Well said!!
Yes and with everything going on in America I think people are looking for racism everywhere. And while it exists people don't need to look for it in every comment and especially since it was with people from a different country. Korean humor is super blunt and hard.
I totally understood the joke, cause I mean I have been teased for being dark all my life. It's a pretty common thing in a Chinese household to tease their kids cousins friends whatever about being dark. I don't get why people make such a big deal out of nothing. It's not like he said a specific race was bad or anything.
you couldnt have said It better. im trying to stay of this issue just because I think its ridiculous how people just see the bad side in everything, but you made some good points. I also really do feel bad for all the real fans that just want to see and interact with BTS but wont be able to. all because of someone/everyones childish attitude .
