Oh My Girl did something racist again (and also fat-shaming)


On a recent episode of "Shindong Gayo," Oh My Girl's Seunghee briefly acted out a Mexican stereotype, garnering laughs from her fellow group members and MC Shindong. In the clip, Seunghee sticks a piece of jelly to her face to imitate facial hair and acts out a "burrito from Mexico" CF in a stereotypical accent.

In another clip from the same episode, Oh My Girl are playing charades and Hyojung acts out her given prompt, "Shindong", by holding out her arms to imitate a fat person. All the members laugh, as does Shindong himself, but since he's MCing it's hard to tell how he really feels about the joke.
