BamBam of GOT7 recently posted a picture of himself doing Wakanda Forever from ‘Black Panther‘, and enough people greeted him with accusations of racism or blackface or cultural appropriation that he commented himself on Twitter and Instagram.
Okay…. so idol not allow to become a movie fan?

Some are now saying it was a joke or something, likely after the fact since he actually addressed them, but there were obviously enough being a mess to elicit a reaction. The whole thing is just ridiculous. The worst part is that as K-pop fans try to get idols to recognize issues with racism or discrimination of any sort, stuff like this will more and more make them just ignore it as noise.
My only burning question after seeing that picture is why he looks like a vampire about to sleep.
