SBS Apologizes And Clarifies Rude Comment Heard On aespa’s Ningning’s Fancam
SBS’s “Inkigayo” offered an apology over a recent controversy regarding aespa member Ningning’s fancam.
On November 29, aespa performed their debut track “Black Mamba” on SBS’s “Inkigayo,” and a fancam of member Ningning was uploaded on December 1.
Shortly after, the video sparked controversy for a phrase uttered around 10 seconds into the video. A voice could be heard commenting, “It’s uncoordinated.” A debate took place online on whether the voice was referring to the group’s performance, or something else entirely. Things got heated up even further because the comment included a curse word.
SBS responded on November 7 by explaining, “We have confirmed that in the process of filming the fancam, a conversation unrelated to aespa’s stage was recorded and included in the final fancam. The staff that manages YouTube video uploads was not able to catch this detail before posting it. We apologize to those that may have taken offense by this matter. We will take more care with future uploads.”
Here is the original fancam:
