“Black face in 2014. I just want to say this is NOT acceptable!!!!! We are not for comic purposes. This should stop now!!!!! I’m highly disappointed. NO MORE BLACKFACE!!! Or any sort of discrimination against any group or race.

All the prejudices, racial discrimination, colorism should stop with immediate effect. Let’s stop this!!!!”

In Korean, Sam Okyere wrote,

“Watching such scene on TV is upsetting and annoying. I hope it never appears on a broadcast again. We have to get rid of all discrimination on race!!!! I appreciate everyone who is giving support. We can do it together!! Thank you.

The color of our skin may be different but the color of our blood is the same. Let’s all fighting!”

Or any sort of discrimination against any group or race. All the prejudices, racial discrimination, colorism should stop with immediate effect. Let’s stop this!!!! Tv 보면서 이런 장문 나오면 마음이 아프고 짜증나요. 앞으로 방송에서 이런 모습들 안나왔으면 좋겠습니다. 모든 인종에 대한 비하 없애야 한다!!!! 응원해주신 여러분 진심으로 감사합니다. 같이 할 수 있다!!! 감사합니다. 피부색은 다르지만 피의 색은 같습니다. 다 같이 화이팅!!!!
