Chaeyoung — a member of the K-Pop group Twice — is apologizing for wearing a swastika on her shirt … saying she didn’t realize what the symbol was.
The singer took to IG for her mea culpa, writing … “I sincerely apologize regarding the Instagram post. I didn’t correctly recognize the meaning of the tilted swastika in the t-shirt I wore.”
She adds, “I deeply apologize for not thoroughly reviewing it, causing concern. I will pay absolute attention in the future to prevent any situation similar from happening again.”
Unclear when she wore the top in question, but there’s a photo that shows her posing at a restaurant with a Sid Vicious graphic tee, where he’s depicted in black and white … and baring a swastika on his own shirt.
You could argue she’s just a Sex Pistols fan, but some called it antisemitic — and she obviously felt a correction was needed. As for her explanation … some aren’t buying it.
Chaeyoung has also been seen wearing QAnon shirts, and she’s gotten criticism for that too. A good handful of folks feel she’s promoting radicalism through her wardrobe, and that she oughta take accountability and stop it.
