On July 26, f(x)‘s Amber posted a message on her Instagram to haters who criticize her because of her looks and fashion.
In lieu of a photo, she uploaded a completely black image. She wrote as the caption in English, “I never want to be forceful but there comes a time where i need to put my foot down on something i strongly believe in. Due to recent events i want to address something: I’ve been a tomboy pretty much all my life and honestly, to put it short, it really sucks sometimes. Haters can and will hate, but insulting me in front my face is totally different thing.”
She continued, “I personally believe girls and boys are not limited to one specific look. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. We are all different. If we all sang the same melody how can there be harmony? Dont judge someone just because they’re different. Hopefully we can all grow to respect each other’s differences.”
“Im always trying to stay positive and happy,” she wrote. “I love my life, my work, and the people who are constantly supporting me. I am always thankful because i know i cant be here on my own strength. With every mistake, i analyze my fault and then try to better myself. I know i can’t be perfect but i will always try to be my best. In regards to that, i want thank everyone again for constantly encouraging me and believing in me.”
In conclusion, she added, “To put it simply, love and help one another. And for people who are struggling, always be yourself. Being true and real to who you are is the biggest thing you can do for yourself. Love life, work hard, and chase your dreams. Thank you again.”
Amber is currently in Osaka for SMTOWN’s two days of concerts on July 25 and 26. Amber and her friend Scott also recently started their own YouTube channel called “What the Pineapple” where they’ve been posting fun and random videos.
