The Internet can be a place full of wonderful things, like cat memes and dog ASMR videos. Sometimes, though, the dark corners of the interwebz pop up on your timeline and you can’t help but be absolutely flabbergasted by the content that you simply cannot unsee.
1. Sexualizing K-Pop Idols
This K-Pop confession is something. While it’s reasonable to love your bias and think they’re hot AF, saying that you’re waiting for them to “grow up” crosses a line that we should all acknowledge.
2. This Whole Post
No, this is not what oppa means. Don’t be that person, OK?
3. Xenophobia At Its Best
Is the original article satire? Is the writer just ignorant? Who knows? But the whole vibe here screams, “NOT OK.” Not only is the headline mean and cringe, but it also encourages racism and xenophobia.
4. Rude And Racist
I don’t think I need to explain why you don’t want to be like this person.
#kpop Jesus I watched one bts video and I instantly died of cringe (and coronavirus)

5. Who Even Says That
Listen. Listen, I just… like, who even…? Yes, cultural appropriation (which Kai was accused of) is never OK, but what kind of person says this kind of thing?

6. Stealing Is Bad Y’all
This person and their Tweet are actually a shining example of good deeds in the K-Pop world, but it was included because of the fact that their father felt compelled to buy open NCT albums because “fans” stole the photocards from them. Way to go, Jaehyundred and dad for being awesome! But seriously, stealing is bad and these big box stores won’t hesitate to press charges. I think we can all agree, it’s p r e t t y cringey going to jail over a $20 (USD) album.
UPDATE: after explaining how fucked this is to do this to the group, my father, who don’t know shit about kpop besides the fact that I like it, paid for the damaged ones so it doesn’t hurt NCT. 🥺 fatherhyundred is literally the best ever. https://t.co/YQwaUQSQkM

7. Leaving Cruel Comments
It’s safe to assume that trolls, and not legitimate K-Pop fans, are leaving comments like these, however, that doesn’t make them any less mean or hurtful.

Edit: I’m more than aware that not all kpop fans are like this. It’s people like this that leaves a bad taste in people’s mouths when kpop is mentioned. Cameron Boyce (Disney channel star for y’all’s who don’t know) passed away yesterday from a seizure in his sleep. Then this dumbass kpop stan makes this tweet??? “If he stanned this kpop bitch he wouldnt have died” Like “God doesn’t make mistakes” but God made a huge mistake in creating kpop bc kpop stans are the antichrist This is so disrespectful it’s not even funny. This person needs to rot I’m fuming. I didn’t really know who Cameron Boyce was but either or this person is a whole ass trash If you’re like this person un-fucking-follow me right fucking now. Shame on you. #loona #kpop #kpopedit #kpopstan #fuckkpop #bts #kpopiscancelled #exo
W-what… I-there’s a lot to unpack here, guys, and while it’s not exactly mean, it is definitely cringe.
I HATE KPOP TWT. I CANT EVEN THIRST TWEET ABOUT MY FAVES WITHOUT YALL TELLING ME TO GET IN LINE. IM NOW IN MILLIONS OF LINES. BITCH THIS AINT ABOUT YOU THIS IS ABOUT ME WANTING TO SUCK JOON WITH YONGS STRAP INSIDE ME AT ONCE

9. Seriously, Not Funny
I know, it’s like beating a dead horse after items 3 and 4, but this takes it to another level of mean.
While it’s an unfortunate fact of life that the world isn’t always a nice place, we can all definitely do our part to make it just a little more tolerable, don’t you agree?
