KARD’s tour manager clarifies that J.seph and Jiwoo did not say the N word

Kicking off their first overseas tour ‘WILD KARD’ in Vancouver, Canada on the night of May 3, coed-group KARD was accused by people on the internet of doing something they didn’t do.

During the show, the members took the time to show off their individual talents when J.seph and Jiwoo took the stage for a collaborative performance.  The duo sang “B*tch Better Have My Money” by Rihanna and some people who saw fancam footage accused the group saying the ‘N’ word via social media as the lyrics contain, “Louis XIII, and it’s all on me, n-word, you just bought a shot…”

To clear things up, KARD’s tour manager made an official statement via Instagram explaining the situation saying J.seph and Jiwoo did not say the ‘N’ word but said “HITTER/HITTA” instead and even posted a clip on Soundcloud for proof.

“It seems like there is a lot of talk about Jiwoo & Jseph’s part for their unit track. I’m their tour manager and I just want to clear up that they did not say the N word but it was actually HITTER/HITTA. Jiwoo sang live over an AR track with her also saying HITTER. It’s so upsetting to read some of the comments online about the members when they didn’t say such things. Please follow the link in my profile to hear the full track and please do share so that the others know that it wasn’t what they thought. They worked so hard for this tour and were so excited so please help clear this up. Thank you always for all the love and support.”
