(Trigger Warning) Spanish 'satire' magazine mocks Jonghyun's death

Yep, this comic is a disaster. I'm a lot more upset that they mocked Jonghyun than Shawols, because I'm just used to people mocking Shawols at this point.

I appreciate the effort of the petition, but I don't really expect SME to do anything, since they have taken the "let's not react" approach to things disrespecting Jonghyun since his death. (Actually, they're just not really acknowledging him at all recently.)

I have to accept that since people were making fun of him almost immediately after he died, there doesn't seem to be any kind of "grace period" and this is going to keep happening. They won't let it rest. It's really frustrating, though.

This is disgusting.

I honestly have no words, I am just so grossed out and horrified. This isn't satire this is mocking, belittling and disgracing Jonghyun.

It makes me sick. Take the tw seriously folks.

People can make fun of shawols, whatever that has been happening for years now and has only gotten worse but to do all this about Jonghyun is just, the only word I have is gross. Like what kind of vile human would even think about this let alone go through with it.

~But it's art~

I hate when people use that argument because what exactly is being satirized here?
undeniablysarah 28th-Oct-2018 05:39 pm (UTC)
I don't think there is any justification for this at all. I would be surprised if anyone could come up with one in this situation.

I wish people would remember Jonghyun as a person with feelings and emotions. He doesn't "represent" mental illness or the problems with the industry and it's not fair to use him as a symbol for that.

I'm reading the original (spanish) version, and wow.... it's SO FULL of racism. And I think I've never seen this level of disrespect toward any occidental artist that committed suicide or that died of an overdose. The author and the magazine deserve to be punished.

Isn't there any gubernamental organization againts racism and discrimination in Spain where fans can report this?

what kind of wild dogshit is this. if there was ever a time for SM to react to a case of flagrant disrespect toward's jonghyun's legacy, it's now. nobody should be able to get away with this amount of racism and insensitivity in a publication without dealing with the full repercussions.

Other than the blatant disrespect and racism in this comic, this author chose a singer who was actually known for writing and producing music for himself, his group and for other artists like...if this idiot had done even the bare minimum amount of research then this comic wouldn’t even exist but he just had to create something scandalous.

The kpop industry ain’t shit but I’m tired of people who don’t know anything about it acting like these idols aren’t (or weren’t) kids with dreams and people with a LOT of talent and drive and the desire to sing, dance, produce music, etc. As soon as I saw this comic I immediately remembered the video of Jonghyun when he was just a fourteen year old kid saying that he wanted to be a singer.

It really seems like we can’t go a week without someone disrespecting Jonghyun but this is undoubtedly the worst of it. I’m exhausted at this point and I wish people wouldn’t give this shit attention but at the same time I want the people who do this to realize how fucking heartless they really are.

People keep wanting to take out their issues with the industry on individuals who aren't responsible for the state it's in and then somehow missing the point completely.

Omg, a European media outlet playing woke-leftwing-truthteller and real voice of the people while showing their fascist/homophobic/xenophobic asses??? Never heard of such a thing happening.

Also there is such a thing as the 27 club, it was born within American media... I never heard them make fun of that though.
lightframes 28th-Oct-2018 06:42 pm (UTC)
The translator acknowledges the existence of the club, they just mistakenly thought it was all suicides.

This is not satire, first of all. This is racism and mocking mental illness and straight up calling Kpop participants on all sides pedophiles. It pisses me off that shit like this exists on a human level, on an academic level, on every level.

this is the third time that the "artist" has mocked jonghyun since december. the first time was within days of his passing so i'm not surprised anymore. upset? yeah. surprised? not in the slightest. being a shawol (let alone a blinger) is exhausting. a week doesn't go by where we don't have to fight to defend jonghyun, and most of us haven't even gotten a proper chance to cope because of it, tbh. sad considering it's almost been a year already.

in the end, nothing is going to be done. he'll just keep on doing what he's been doing. sm doesn't have the jurisdiction to sue the magazine, and they wouldn't do anything anyway, tbh. k-shawols have been reaching out to them to try to get them to protect his legacy and name for months to no result.

yea I was reading that the content in this is similar to his previous mocking, which is even worse. how can one person be so miserable and craving for attention/affirmation that he can continue mocking similar things in the same vein without even wondering if this will hurt the person he's poking fun at

this guy is just pure vile.

Idk what to say really. This is so offensive.

Since December, it hurts that Jonghyun's name becomes a punching bag for some fans and media. He did not do this to garner attention to himself - he was in immeasurable amount of despair for so long.

this is fucking disgusting, wow.
sra_interesante 29th-Oct-2018 03:12 am (UTC)
i saw this on twitter and tried to read but i couldnt finish it ... its really upsetting

im triggered af 😠
ashdevilrun23 29th-Oct-2018 04:19 am (UTC)
Why do people continue to drag his name :( just let him rest in peace
chikage_chan 29th-Oct-2018 05:23 am (UTC)
Fuck this shit. Between this and Brazil electing a worse and militarized version of Trump, I'm so done with humanity today.
strangerstheme 29th-Oct-2018 07:07 am (UTC)
El Jueves has always been pretty racist so it doesn't really surprise me but wow, they really crossed the line making fun of suicide like that
I don't think the petition will make the magazine retire the issue unfortunately, I haven't even heard anything on spanish media regarding this
nixx0_0 29th-Oct-2018 12:38 pm (UTC)
This guy and this "media source" are fucking sickening.
Since Jonghyun's passing!
I'm tired of these blatantly xenophobic arseholes using tragedies in kpop as a chance for their Come Up.
I understand this is new to some of them but this bullshit be getting DAMN OLD.

And shut the fuck up before you get smacked the fuck up.
evilcoc0nut 30th-Oct-2018 06:01 pm (UTC)
Congrats to them, this is the most disgusting western media take I've heard on his death yet. Smh.
