Dreamcatcher Company Apologizes For Using Dreadlocks As A Game Punishment

Source: @hf_dreamcatcher

Vlive took down the original video, but you can see it here at the 22 minute mark. It looks like it's braids rather than dreadlocks, but the combination of the hair and Handong's change in mannerisms is nagl :/ If the company is trying to be more understanding of sensitive issues, I hope they recognize that the name and logo for Dreamcatcher is also culturally appropriative.

Some of these BIG 3 and pretend-woke-for-cash companies could learn a thing or two from this apology

Best apology a company released ever. I am surprised but it’s good to see that they seem actually serious about this!

this here is the whole reason I haven't tried to get into them, just, hmm.

In the tune of CLC's No:

Deadlocks? NO
Blackface? NO
Hep-hap? NO
Anti-blackness? NO

I first saw this reported over on reddit where i came in late to the party and WHEW. All I wanted to say was that this was a really good apology but the irony with their whole "aesthetic" in general clears up my anemia.

Mess, but least they apologized.

This was a good apology, but I really hope that they learn from this. Please don't let them turn into another Mamamoo.

Why are dreadlock/braid props still around??

Hopefully this stays a one time thing, the apology gives me some hope
