iKON's BI makes insensitive joke as he ‘pranks’ his mom by coming out to her

iKON has recently come under fire after an iKON fan posted a video clip and subtitles from the ‘iKON GROUND’ portion of their Japanese ‘SUMMERTIME’ DVD on Twitter (OP note: tweets have since then been deleted). As a part of a game attempting to get her to say ‘heol‘, the clip shows BI calling his mother and playing a “prank”, coming out to her as gay as the rest of the members go into hysterics due to the apparent amusement of the prospect.

It was talked about in an ONTD post and blamed on some BTS stans even though the original translation and post was from a BI stan.

seeing fans falling over themselves to try and defend this was both hilarious and deeply maddening

They need to read some books and educate themselves.

I wonder if Bobby still thinks hip-hop culture is going to school without showering.

what hanbin did was ignorant, and i’m saying this as an ikonic (a non cishet) one btw, and the fandom has already talked about it so I don’t know who y’all are talking about falling over themselves to excuse it. Fans have already gathered and wrote a letter to YG asking for an apology or at least sensitivity training for lack of a better word.

so at least we try and educate our idols. yeah they fuck up but they’re still good guys, just like every other idol group out there.

I was waiting for this to be posted and was really surprised to see this on ONTD and not Omona, considering this is a week old and it was all over my Twitter feed.

As a queer person, I am so disgusted and tired by this. This isn't funny and has never been funny, I don't give a fuck about their feelings, they constantly fucked up time and time again and I always gave them the benefit of the doubt, cuz they seemed so-so. I know a lot of people were downplaying this on ONTD cuz some of the people making a fuss about it on K-pop Twitter had BTS icons and were ARMYs, but it really baffles me how K-pop stans can't separate that there are actual real people behind their profile photos, with real issues.

K-pop stans love to deflect whenever anyone with a BTS icon starts talking sense or making points.

I don't even know what to say at this point, because their comments all scream toxic frat bro culture, that whole group is so aggressively masculine and this was done in such poor taste.

"Coming out pranks" are not funny and will never be funny, I live with homophobic parents in a country where I can get deported, I just cancelled a date I had on Friday with a girl I'm interested in because I'm so paranoid I'll get caught by the authorities. I couldn't sleep at night because of this.

Fuck these guys and their fans who hid this, I can't believe they tried justifying this. I saw tweets circulating and excusing their behaviour.

I really wondered when it would lend on Omona.
This breaks my heart. I don't even feel anger, just sadness and pain. What an awful "joke" to do when so many kids are thrown out of their familles or risk their lifes when they come out :(
And this was filmed, edited and added to an official DVD. So many persons watched and okayed this...
