Is all the hate for K-pop necessary?

On February 4, Teen Vogue posted a link to their article about HyunA and Dawn’s engagement. They obviously meant well, their followers and many other users that interacted with the tweet came off as insensitive, homophobic, sexist, xenophobic as well as racist among many other things. As soon as the post was online, fans of K-pop spotted locals interacting with the Tweet with insensitive reactions. One user tweeted, “While this post is a little insensitive to single people trying to find someone, I applaud @TeenVogue for celebrating two woman getting married!” calling Dawn a woman; trying to effeminate male K-pop idols, a trend that many haters use to instigate fans of K-pop.

While the Teen Vogue post did not intend any harm to HyunA and Dawn, the replies section of Teen Vogue’s Twitter handle seemed to be a bad place for fans of K-pop. Fans who replied to the tweet with their reactions to the news were met by one toxic user who kept calling out fans with comments like, “You don't even know wo they are.” The said user also made a highly misinformed comment saying, “This article should have stayed in Korea as no one outside of Korea knows who these nobodies are,” proving why fans of K-pop are rightfully defensive for their faves.

But srsly I’m not joking or purposefully being disrespectful. They look like if my children looked like that I’d be stressed TF out.”
