Chan from Stray Kids wears cornrows, fans ask him to apologize during Vlive

On the 18th, Stray Kids' subunit 3RACHA consisting of leader Bang Chan, Changbin and Han performed their new track titled 'Zone' on Mcountdown. Fans noticed Chan's hairstyle, started questioning whether it was his choice or stylist's choice and demanded an explanation. Some argued that Chan should have known he shouldn't have done it because he's an English speaker and grew up in Australia.

Two days later, on the 20th, Bang Chan held a Vlive with a fellow member Jongin. Fans took this chance to demand an apology and flooded the comment section with comments asking him to explain his choice and apologize. You can watch the video below:

Ifans hype this group up so much and idg why.

Idk much about them but I like their mini BlackPink cover incl. by the cornrow guy. They have some talent for sure

yyyikes. I'm glad fans are attempting to keep him accountable.

crikey mate!! not a good look
dropthecrates 21st-Apr-2019 09:24 am (UTC)
lmao it just looks SO bad
i'd be surprised if he apologises or even acknowledges it because australians literally Do Not Give A Shit about appropriation

So I don't keep up with Stray Kids that much but a lot of The Boyz fans like them so this drama came up on my tline and bruh, more than the group, it seems like their i-fanbase really showed their asses with this whole mess. The amount of Black stays I've seen get shouted over about this is disgraceful.

From what I've seen on my tline there are actually many fans who want him to apologize and their tweets got many RTs. One of the fans is going to explain him the situation at the fansign event and tell him that he did wrong:


But it's possible that just like Bambam (who promised to apologize in the past) he won't be allowed to do so because of management.

So did he respond to any of the comments on the vlive?

This kinda shit has happened so many times in the kpop industry so far that i genuinely doubt that there's anyone left who doesn't know that it's problematic.
hallyujah 21st-Apr-2019 01:46 pm (UTC)
it's like when celebrities use blackface as part of their halloween costume. There's scandals every year about it.... clearly they're just looking for attention

Don't care for the group tbh, but I'm glad that their fans are not covering for him. or trying to deflect blame.
Hold him accountable. He's not a child, and if he didn't know he can learn.

I mean, from going that questionable hair during My Pace...
I feel like this is only the natural progression.

Not surprised, nor disappointed (you can't be a Kpop fan for this long and have expectations tbh.)
I'm more interested how he goes forward and will fans handle this.

Being that both parties know he's in the wrong.
hallyujah 21st-Apr-2019 01:44 pm (UTC)
I don't think he'll learn from this going forward...without a spanking :D
hallyujah 21st-Apr-2019 01:43 pm (UTC)
I almost had to LOL when I came to the part about "He should know better,,, he's Australian." We all know that's giving Australia waaayyyy too much fucking credit. It's like when BlackPink does appropriating stufff and peopole expect more from Rose. Y'all save your breath, that island is beautiful but a cultural cesspool lbr.

Another performance recently he had like the side cornrow and it looked dumb af too. Too bad cuz he's actually talented.

if they really flooded the comment section and he STILL didn't apologize... yikes
u_know 21st-Apr-2019 03:22 pm (UTC)
Don't have time for the video rn, did he apologize in the video?
22_taken 21st-Apr-2019 03:33 pm (UTC)
No, he hasn't apologized yet. Stray Kids had another Vlive today with all members and the comment section looked pretty much the same like last time, with fans demanding an explanation/apology. Chan was more quiet than usual and had a nosebleed.

Did anyone see that one fan who is Greek and German saying she was mixed and that she had a right to comment about this cause her dad was ‘dark’ and had an ‘accent’? I was D Y I N G at the caucasity and just how stupid some fans are.

thebloomroom 21st-Apr-2019 04:16 pm (UTC)
nnnnn link sis!!!!

Bad choice mate

He prob won't apologize directly (or be able to) but I do hope we don't see it again and we can get at least a subtle acknowledgement that its messed up
