Yesterday, Stray Kids posted on their Instagram this apology to their fans for past racism. Now, you may ask "what they are apologizing for?" ? Well, a few days ago, episode 2 of "Finding Stray Kids" (their own variety show) aired, in which Huynjin dressed as a famous character's wife. The problem with the character? While it's supposed to represent an old Korean woman, it has big lips and an afro.

first off, I want to preface with saying that everyone has the right to be offended, and I only wish to give you a Korean person's knowledge on this character/stereotype to help you understand! pic.twitter.com/VNAazK5a7U

They should have mentioned why they apologized (and why this character is problematic AF) because we're not dumb. Bang Chan and Felix laughing is such a bad look...
