Korea has their own Rachel Dolezal! UR2 contestant Truedy under fire for cultural appropriation

Truedy, a contestant on Mnet's survival show, 'Unpretty Rapstar', has been recently getting attention for apparently being mixed as she mentions about being "the first black people" in Korea through her lyrics: "This is Truedy flow feel ma voice / Check ma soul I’m from Seoul, can you believe it? Seoul City soul / The first black people in Korea / I’ve never been under but I’ve been to the real bottom / I came up here without anyone, all by myself".

A fan called her out on instagram, telling her that if she isn't mixed, she shouldn't act like she is because being black is not a costume:

With YM known in the in the entertainment scene she's fucking bold to say and use this. NO sound bite...I'm not in the mood to search for this extremely clueless dummy. It's shame those judges don't blast her on this behavior.

I hope in her never ending quest to be the dollar store Yoon Mirae she also accepts the discrimination and struggles Tasha has endured as a mixed race Korean woman. But she won't have to because she can straighten her hair and wash the spray tan off which actual mixed race people don't have the luxury to do her. The whole 'love of black culture' she's prattling about is a costume to her.

ugh I can't believe it. I was really rooting for her but oh well I hope Heize takes the win now and somebody calls her out on this

i so wish tasha would drag her. she prob won't but someone has to let her know what she's doing is wrong. god knows she won't listen to the black people who have tried to educate her on instagram considering she deletes any comments alluding to the cultural appropriation she's doing.

She needs a wake up call. But I don't think anyone of the rappers on the show are gonna be the ones to do it. Unless a biracial person appeared on the show as a new contestant, then I could see that happening. But now with these group of people.

I know I'm expecting way too much from San-E but I wish he would say something to her.
It's really weird how through her lyrics she's really tryna rep for black people. But if you straight ask her if she's black she'll say no. I really need someone to call her out. If I was Yoon Mi Rae I'd be pissed.

Every.Damn.Day in kpop it's some *shit like this
I'm not even surprised
The only reason I'm laughing instead of being mad is because I got some amazing news, it's Saturday and I'm drinking beer. So really, this whole thing is hilarious to me.
I mean yes, this is reprehensible, foul, insulting and just plain creepy but also loooooollll bitch you THOUGHT!
How embarrassing.

(*appropriation, someone thinking you can access blackness through cornrows, fake tan & liking hip hop. Obviously not always to this extreme tho)

Wow I was so excited....this is so awful and disappointing. SMH I cant believe we've reached this point in khh. How ironic that her name is "true"dy.

And I thought Hyorin would be the worst thing lol.
