In what is probably the most improbable turn of events, JYP Entertainment has issued an apology for the ‘Hoes Take Off Your Clothes’ outfit “controversy” that can sorta be sourced back to Asian Junkie.
The agency representative commented, “We apologize for the concern the outfit controversy caused TWICE’s fans. We were unaware of the message written on the T-shirt.” The agency representative added, “We’ll pay special attention to the outfits and other elements going forward so that something like this won’t happen again. Again, we apologize for causing concern.”
Of course, the point of the article in question was that the ridiculous shirts were hilarious, but let’s not let that get in the way of quality journalism done by The Korea Herald and friends.
And hey, as long as I’m on a roll here, I’m going to go ahead and state that I do not accept JYPE’s stated apology. The hurt of that clothing choice has scarred me to my soul. However, if JYP himself released a blurry video shot in a basement while wearing a #FreeTzuyu shirt, plastic pants, and his banana hammock thong, and JYP proceeds to read an apology to the hurt feelings of the Asian Junkie admins, staff, and precious commenters whose lives were affected by all this, I would be willing to move forward knowing that he will reflect and return with a better attitude.
But seriously, #JusticeForAsianJunkie, because I’m now being trolled by my own goddamn memes.
You either die a dank memer or you live long enough to see your dank memes turn against you.
Literally @asianjunkiecom has achieved more than me in K-Pop. He managed to get JYP to say "sorry". Do you know how hard that is?
