Han Ye-seul, Yoona, Stray Kids, Park Jun-hyung: Stars victims of racism abroad

We may say that racism should be avoided everywhere in the world, but in reality, unpleasant things happen frequently.

After announcing her marriage to her husband, who is not a celebrity and is ten years younger than her, Han Ye-seul is currently enjoying her honeymoon in Italy. The latter expressed her anger on May 28 on her networks, claiming that she had been the victim of racial discrimination during her honeymoon and therefore declared: " At the Splendido Hotel in Portofino Belmond, Italy, I was discriminated against and it really hurt me. They put me in a seat other than the beach seat I had reserved, without any explanation or apology.”

“The hotel staff confirmed my reservation after learning that I was a hotel guest. She then added: “ I thought they did this to me because the seats were full, but that was absolutely not the case" and it was only after I complained about this discrimination that I was able to use the Terrace Dior "

After the message was posted, some Italian fans apologized for the unpleasant racism Han Ye-seul suffered.

It should be noted that Yoona, a member of the group Girls' Generation, was also the subject of racial discrimination recently during a stay abroad. Indeed, on May 26 (local time), while attending the 77th Cannes International Film Festival, a bodyguard in charge of the red carpet prevented Yoona from posing on the steps.

This bodyguard, unlike what she did when she saw white celebrities, only asked celebrities of color to enter quickly, thus arousing suspicions of racism. The video posted online shows Yoona trying to pose for reporters on the red carpet, but the bodyguard blocked her with her arm. Faced with this situation, Yoona simply greeted the journalists with a wave of her hand.

A local media outlet wrote: “Although Yoona didn't express it outwardly, her expression showed that she seemed to be visibly uncomfortable. She quietly went back inside without overreacting,” which drew criticism from many fans in Korea and abroad.

As for the Stray Kids, they attended the “Met Gala 2024” held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York on May 6 (local time) as global brand ambassadors for Tommy Hilfiger. Comments from some paparazzi on the Stray Kids red carpet sparked a racist controversy in a video that went viral online. Indeed, a foreign fan posted a video of Stray Kids on social networks declaring: " Although I didn't watch the whole video, I was completely shocked. "

The paparazzi in the video did not hesitate to make crude remarks such as "I have never seen such emotional faces in my life", "They are robots", "Everyone jump" and "Arigato » towards the Stray Kids. That's when leader Bang Chan clapped his hands to get the other members' attention and they left.

These attitudes prompted Internet users to leave comments such as “It’s rude”, “It’s obvious racism” or even “Aren’t they ashamed? ". Faced with the intensification of the controversy, the paparazzi behind these racist remarks put their accounts on social networks in “private” mode.

Park Joon-hyung

Park god member Park Joon-hyung also faced racism during a program in Brussels, Belgium. Recall that on September 24, 2017, Park Joon-hyung made headlines by publishing a long post on his social media account. The video he posted with the post was part of an episode of JTBC's "Looking for Trouble," which aired around the same time, and Park Joon-hyung and the cast could be seen walking around late at night to find accommodation.

In the video, several residents can be seen approaching Park Joon-hyung and making denigrating and mocking gestures towards Asians by touching parts of his body with their legs.

Park Jun-hyung said, “II'm sorry I worried a lot of people by watching this scene. » while continuing: “ I was surprised at first because it was a situation that no one expected " and " I was even more surprised because it was late at night and it happened on the way to the last location" , he added.

«  Fortunately, staff and guards arrived and the situation was brought under control before it escalated.” He also added, “No one is born bad, it’s the situation that makes people bad"

What do you think of these attitudes?

On the other hand, for Yoona in Cannes, the media plays on pitting people against each other. Because she wasn't the only one. Certainly black personalities also bore the brunt of the absurd behavior of the bodyguard, but it was revealed that other “white” personalities were also entitled to this treatment.

The road to human stupidity still seems to be very long... it's annoying, I'm nervous after reading this article... I thought the world would evolve but I would say that it isn't!!

Mrs A

It makes me mad with rage at such behavior, but what a shame, you should learn respect, these racist people don't even come close to these celebrities, as for this lousy bodyguard, she's looking for a new job . It's so pathetic

It's really nonsense, I can't believe that in 2024 racism still exists, really shame on these people, they really are all idiots.

We are one

PFF…

-Samuel J.Jackson had also been a victim of racism in Italy. A person was allowed to post a photo of himself, with another black actor, with branded shopping bags saying “this is where our allowances are going”… Courage to Han Ye alone, I hope she has when could have had a good honeymoon despite this story.

-I really hope that this “bodyguard” will be suspended, she has been talked about a lot with Kelly Rowland and others. When I saw the photo I said to myself “what else is she…”

-For the Met Gala, I'm still upset about what happened to the Stray kids, really unacceptable...

– For Park jun hyung, it’s clearly an attack… People are completely crazy

This kind of thing pisses me off.

Inadmissible. These racist people should be ashamed.
