TV Personality Sam Okyere Responds To Blackface Controversy

Following Hwang Hyun Hees controversial response to the recent blackface skit on SBSs Comedy Hunter, popular TV personality Sam Okyere also reacted to the racist skit.

On April 24, Sam Okyere posted a screenshot of the blackface skit on his personal Instagram account. After writing a message in English, he added in Korean, Its painful and annoying whenever I see these things on TV. I really hope this wont happen again in the future. We need to stop making fun of races! I sincerely want to thank those of you who have cheered me up. We can do this together! Thank you. The color of our skin may be different, but the color of our blood is the same. Fighting to us all!

Black face in 2017. I just want to say this is NOT acceptable!!!!! We are not for comic purposes. This should stop now!!!!! Im 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. Lets 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!!!!
