Some Netizens Are Criticizing iKON For ‘Homophobic’ Behavior

YG Entertainment

A video footage of iKON members playing a game in the past recently surfaced online. Ever since, it has been going viral and has been causing discomfort among some people.

The members played a game where B.I had the task of trying to get his mother to say the world “heol” (meaning ‘oh my good ness’ or ‘wow’) through a phone conversation.

DongHyuk suggested that he tell his mother some thing that would shock her. And B.I decided to say that he liked men to his mother.

All the members cackled over the statement.

Some people were not amused by their game and their reaction, having labeled them as “homophobic”. One netizens stated below “iKON are apparently homophobic…but I’m not one bit surprised.”

 

 

How do you feel about iKON’s video?

What the actual fuck? Is it homophobic to make a joke about being gay?

If I, a bisexual woman said to my parents “I’m straight” simply to shock them, am I heterophobic? No.

Stop blowing things out of proportion. Just because you’re not saying “I love gays” doesn’t mean you’re homophobic. And making a joke about a minority is also not –phobic against said minority.

The choice of words make it sound awful. ‘cackling’ they were simply holding back laughter because he was saying a joke/something funny in the context.

Grow up. Y’all are too sensitive.

Youtubers do coming out to my “___” pranks all the time and people simply laugh, because they’re not trying to be homophobic they’re just trying to get a reaction out of someone. All B.I did was try to get a reaction out of his mom so why is y’all out here tripping
