Jackson Wang Responds to Racist Comment Live
South Korean boy-group GOT7’s return to the music scene is receiving more attention than anticipated because of member Jackson Wang (王嘉爾). On May 23rd, the group started a live broadcast right before their comeback stage on the music show, M COUNTDOWN. The members were conversing in Korean while interacting with fans on V Live prior to performing their latest release “Eclipse.” Suddenly, Jackson, who hails from Hong Kong, noticed a racist comment.
Instead of ignoring the comment, Jackson chose to read it aloud. He read, “So funny when Jackson speaks in Korean, still sounds Ching.”
Despite alluding that his Korean had a Chinese accent to it, the star didn’t let his emotions get the better of him, and took the high route instead. He replied on the spot, “You know what? No negative comments okay? Let’s stay positive. Let’s show a lot of love. Let’s love more than hate, alright?”
The moment was reposted by a fan, which caused many fans to be distressed over his unfair treatment. However, others praised Jackson’s high EQ and positive attitude.
