Why is saying n word so normalised in western music industry but a taboo in kpop

  • So many western singers and rappers who don't even belong to black community still use those n words get away with it and nobody cancels them but when a kpop idol says those words then same international fans who don't care about it when western artists says that word, start cancelling kpop idols.


    Why international fans have double standards for kpop artists vs western artists.


    Im not saying that saying n word is good, it is wrong and its inappropriate to use those words but im questioning the double standards of international fans.


    Same is with cultural appropriation it is so normalised in west that nobody even cares if


    Update:- after reading comments i learned a lot, thanks for commenting.

  • both of those situations are wrong but k-artists using it is just pretentious and tryhard because they aren't even exposed to the word like americans are... they just want to be cool and it's pathetic

    If they use it out of nowhere just to look edgy, then I agree it's bad. If it's in a western song and they're just singing the song, then blame the song.

  • Cancel culture doesn't work anyway, people will still listen to their music. I remember Doja said something insulting about black people but guess what, she's still very successful.



    CA is literally not normalized in the West, you just don't see celebs doing it often cause they aren't dumb. Many celebs get attacked and called out for doing disrespectful things as well.


    Rihanna was literally under fire in like October because she was using a song with Hadiths(they're like a collections of traditional and sacred verses for Muslims, any Muslim is free to correct me if I'm wrong) for her lingerie fashion show.

    Ariana is attacked constantly for "blackfishing" and "trying to look black".

    Even Kim Kardashian got lots of criticism after she wore box braids/cornrows at one point.

    Trust me, the hate and criticism Western celebs get for doing offensive things is no different from the criticism and hate KPOP idols get.

    And international fans aren't going to call out something they don't listen to eye-


    CA is literally not normalized in the West, you just don't see celebs doing it often cause they aren't dumb. Rihanna was literally under fire the other month because she was using a song with Hadiths(they're like a collections of traditional and sacred verses for Muslims, any Muslim is free to correct me if im wrong) for her lingerie fashion show.

    Doja Cat is mixed and 90% of the things they claimed she said/did is a lie.


    She also mostly dragged black men, so that’s why it mainly blew up. It blew over because it was obvious they didn’t care and were just down bad.

  • Cause kpop idols get cancelled for everything they did :) they even get cancelled for dating

  • That word is ugly and degrading as hell, there is nothing cool about it or the history behind it. Nobody should even use it I dont understand why it is even a thing especilly for people who are not part of the black community.

  • Westerners do not get away with saying the N word. Where did you hear that? Perhaps long before when social media wasn’t a thing and times were more racist. But not any more. Celebs receive public backlash much the same way as idols and Not just celebs you can lose scholarships and get kicked out of companies for saying the N word. Both common man and celebs are held accountable.


    You seem ill informed to push a narrative that doesn’t exist.

  • That's legitimately not true. "International fans" who "cancel" kpop idols for saying the n-word also "cancel" western (or non-kpop) non-black artists who say the n-word. If a fan - regardless of where they are from - has an issue with someone using a slur, or engaging in cultural appropriation - it doesn't matter who says it.


    I think the issue might be that your radar is skewed - if your sample size are people who mostly listen to kpop, when "western" artists do culturally insensitive they just may not know it even happened. I very much don't listen only listen to kpop, but I don't listen to country at all, so when Morgan Waller (is that his name?) got dropped from his label yesterday for saying the n-word, that was the first time I even knew he had said it, because I didn't pay attention to him outside the headline I saw.

    If anything it’s idols that don’t get any actual real backlash just some trending on social media some say sorry some don’t even do that and everything is forgotten after two days.


    In the west you will lose your job. You career. Etc. OPs entire post reeks of ignorance.

  • What are you talking about? Westerners who aren't black and aren't racially ambiguous get way more heat for saying the n word than kpop idols.

  • It's very telling how little you know about the western industry. Just like people said a country singer got dropped from his label from saying the nword it literally blew up on twitter yesterday. But that kid from skz wrote an apology and his fans are complaining that he didn't owe anyone an apology and everyone took it too far just to hate on him.....

  • Does OP even know what they are talking about? White western artists getting away with saying the n word.


    Where?

    not white but 69 says it and he SELLS

    He also went to jail. And is seen as literal scum. I can go call 69 scum rn on Twitter and TikTok is filled with ppl calling him scum. Receiving backlash =/= people changing. Those are completely different things.


    People will always support even if you commit crime thats not the point of discussion but about “receiving backlash”. People who want to support will always support.
