“Don’t Change My Feed Full Of Rainbows To Dark Clouds.” K-Pop star Jo Kwon slams homophobic trolls over photo with gay chef

“Don’t Change My Feed Full Of Rainbows To Dark Clouds.” K-Pop star Jo Kwon slams homophobic trolls over photo with gay chef

One of K-Pop’s most famous stars has hit out at social media trolls who criticized him for taking a selfie with a gay celebrity.

Jo Kwon, who was the former leader of South Korean pop group, 2AM, posed for a selfie with chef Hong Suk Chun. Hong is a well-known South Korean chef and considered to be one of the country’s most famous gay celebrities.

Jo Kwon shared the selfie (pictured above); after visiting Hong Suk Chun’s restaurant, Jo Kwon wrote about Hong, “So delicious. And so amazing. He’s just the best.”

Following this, trolls flooded Kwon’s social media post with homophobic comments and Kwon was having none of it.

Jo Kwon fired back at the hate with strong remarks. He said, “This way or that way, what’s the problem??? Am I that way if I go there? Hey, it’s 2018 now.”

He continued, “I usually just ignore it and let it slide. They say social media is a waste. I also agree. But in order to communicate, I use my public account without ‘harming’ others. But sometimes I see these accounts without any followers that do things that go beyond common sensical acts to gain attention. I want to say this to them. Did I harm your life in any way? Celebrities are humans too. I hope you become a person with a broader perspective of the world. There are people who look this way, that way, with this kind of personality and that personality, this kind of preference and that kind of preference. They all deserve to be loved. I hope you learn to respect others first. What are you going to say if someone out of nowhere just asks why do you look that way? You’re too fat. You’re too skinny. Everyone has the right to be loved. If these people never harmed you in any way then please give love and live a beautiful life.”

Jo Kwon lastly added, “Not just this netizen but there were others who even DM’ed my peers. It’s funny how they say I’m that kind of person or this kind of person. Stop discriminating. Someone can also hate and discriminate against you. We can’t satisfy everyone in the world but there is a basic line. Don’t change my feed full of rainbows to dark clouds.”
