Sometimes it really grosses me out how racist netizens can be.
After it was reported that Luhan will be nullifying his contract with SM Entertainment, netizens were quick to respond.
They started bashing Chinese people in general and saying that the K-Pop industry shouldn’t bring in Chinese trainees anymore.
I don’t think they’re considering that both Kris and Luhan were suffering from pretty intense health issues.
They also forget that there are still Chinese idols in SM, like Victoria, Amber Tao, and Lay as well as idols in JYP and other agencies that are Chinese and are sticking to the K-pop industry.
So while this news is shocking and depressing, there’s absolutely no need for netizens to bash an entire population of people based on the decision of a few.
Here are what netizens are saying about the situation, translated by NetizenBuzz:
