Yoo Se Yoon criticized harshly for using a derogatory term for the disabled during ‘SMTOWN Live’ concert

Yoo Se Yoon is under fire for his poor choice of words.

He and Muzi’s team UV were guests at the ‘SMTOWN Live’ on the 8th for Shindong, as they had an SM STATION song together. After the duo performed “Marry Man” together, they also performed UV’s hit “Itaewon Freedom”.

However, while explaining one of their choreography moves, the comedian said, “If you raise your arm only partly, you look like a cripple.” The term used (byungshin) is usually translated to ‘retard’, but is more literally a derogatory term to describe the physically disabled.

The audience was shocked by his curse and immediately took to Twitter to demand an apology as well as official feedback from both Yoo Se Yoon and SM Entertainment. Yoo Se Yoon has already once before in 2015 been under fire for his cursing on broadcast.
