San E Cancels Appearance At Event For Documentary “Respect” Following Feminism Controversy
Rapper San E’s appearance at an upcoming event for the documentary film “Respect” has been canceled.
“Respect” is a hip hop documentary that will feature appearances by The Quiett, Doki, Deepflow, MC Meta, Beenzino, San E, Swings, Jerry.K, JJK, Tiger JK, and Paloalto. The film is set to have a Guest Visit (GV) event, where the cast will sit down to share behind-the-scenes stories, on November 30 and it has been announced that San E will no longer be attending the event.
A source from “Respect” stated, “San E was originally planning on attending the event, but his appearance has been canceled.” San E’s agency also confirmed the cancellation. A GV event is usually an opportunity for the cast to share stories about the film, but with so much conversation surrounding San E and his recent feminism controversy, both sides came to the agreement that it would be better if he canceled his appearance to keep the focus of the conversation on the film. Instead, Swings, Deepflow, and The Quiett are among those who will be in attendance.
San E recently became the center of controversy when he released his new track “Feminist.” His track was responded to with diss tracks by both Jerry.K and SLEEQ, and San E wrote a diss track in response to Jerry.K. San E has since posted an explanation of his initial song.
“Respect” is set to premiere in Korean theaters on November 28.
