In the midst of much talk on TMZ‘s controversial coverage of EXID, g.o.d‘s Park Joon Hyung added his thoughts on the situation.
On May 5, the g.o.d member wrote on his Instagram, “Wow… I just heard of this news about TMZ and their unacceptable uneducated behavior towards Exid’s members!”
He added, “When someone goes to another country and that person tries their very best to say that they are happy to be there in a foreign language… they should be welcomed…NOT mocked… This unacceptable behavior by tmz not only degrades themselves and shows how shallow and ignorant one can be but also is like spitting on their own faces and the country that they represent…”
He also said, “One should always think before speaking and at least reverse roles and think how they would feel if that role was reversed… I think a public apology is needed…BBBAAAMMM~!!!”
Meanwhile, TMZ has been in the center of controversy since it covered EXID arriving at LAX for the Korea Times Music Festival with racist undertones. So far, EXID’s agency as well as f(x)‘s Amber, 2PM‘s Taecyeon, and Roy Kim have expressed their distaste at the coverage.
