(G)I-DLE member YuQi is currently being criticized for a statement she made about skin color.
Fellow group member ShuHua was talking about the K-Drama “Signal”, and it was then when YuQi joked saying if she wanted to be a police officer, she would need darker skin to hide in the dark while waiting to catch criminals.
Naturally this has angered international fans.
Fans who are criticizing YuQi are currently saying her comment was racist.
However there are also fans who are defending her claiming that her statement about darker skin wasn’t racist but was a way of complimenting ShuHua’s white skin.
I am always astounded by the sheer number of idiots in twitter.
Firstly Yuqi clearly was referring to Shuhua ‘s snow white skin (which she is known for) that she will be easily spotted which is logical.
Secondly this wasn’t a direct translation more like a summary of a vlive. pic.twitter.com/xVfgx53tLv
