On December 31st, SNL Korea aired a skit that featured blackface. Seoulbeats.com has addressed the issue here:
and advised us international fans to tell SNL Korea why that was insensitive as fuck.
So let’s do that. This is our chance to perhaps bring to the table the conversation why blackface IS NOT FUNNY and if South Korea wants to be taken seriously as a global power in entertainment (or in anything) they better cut that shit out and understand why it’s wrong.
So please tweet them here to and tell them why it is wrong that we want an apology and for this blackface issue to be addressed:
But the most important thing in doing this is in order to have a fighting chance at them listening is:
BE POLITE AND CLEAR WITH YOUR TWEETS
Do not be rude and vague, because trust and believe they will not give a fuck.
Here is an example:
I recently saw your skit with the dreamgirls in blackface. If your goal was to pay homage, please understand this is not how you do it. Blackface is a highly racist act set out to stereotype and dehumanize. As a fan it hurts to see this happen.
And if you say “Well, if I tweet them in English how we will they know what I am saying?”
- Seriously it is a major TV Network- someone there will speak English
- If they suddenly get a shitload of tweets in English they will find the means to see why they have garnered so much international attention at once.
Please, guys let’s do this.
Please tweet these people as well
This shit needs to stop
