BaekHyun of EXO recently. Those against him and those supporting him have their reasons.

EXO BaekHyun's Remark About Depression Causes Controversy

BYUNCHENXI

The reason why is because it has only been a couple of weeks since JongHyun of SHINee tragically took his own life out of depression and emotional distress. 

The tweet posting of the audio clip in Korean can be heard below. The Twitter account named 'BaekHyun Doesn't Understand Why People Get Depressed' seems to have been made for the sole purpose of criticising the EXO member.

 

However, EXO fans have their side of the story to tell as well. An explanation was given through Twitter that BaekHyun wasn't being inconsiderate but rather being compassionate towards a fan who was going through depression.  The audio clip was only a partial statement of what BaekHyun was actually trying to tell fans.

EXO BaekHyun's Remark About Depression Causes Controversy

Twitter

Translation Below

" ~ there are people struggling with depression and frankly speaking, I don't know why people have to get depressed or become anxious...(sarcastically) because they like it? No. And I'm not criticizing anyone in any way but just want to say that I know it's hard to try and force yourself to try and be happy when you're depressed. But remember that there are always good people around you, whether they're friends or even me. I sincerely hope that I can be someone you can lean on as well as other EXO members as well. I want everyone here to always smile and be the happiest as you possibly can."

I think it’s really sad that people have to go through depression and I strongly believe that BaekHyun’s words are amazing but we shouldn’t let people say anything to us that will hurt us and just remember they are just words. Fighting ❤️

It was a misunderstanding because of the wrong translation of his words. I see that bad gossip it’s more important than finding the true... so sad.

how you mis-translate you when its korean. and an audio. people keep trying to blame the WHOLE mess on one fandom when it was translate after the issue made news. and it would be a done issue but I-exols are stretching this out and harassing the blamed fandom's idols. Said blamed fandom was not even the one who "ms translated"
