P1Harmony vocalist and leader Keeho has broken his silence on the issues surrounding his twitter account.
Previously, fans uncovered tweets from Keeho’s twitter account and it included many controversial remarks; soon, some people began to allege that he was racist as well. FNC has since released a statement acknowledging the account existence but denied that he had anything to do with the controversy.
Keeho has shared a letter regarding the recent controversy, the letter was handwritten and in English, here is what he said,
Hello this is P1Harmony’s Keeho,
I would like to first and foremost apologize sincerely about the issues that have been caused in the last few days.
There has been a lot of screenshots circulating around about my Twitter account from years ago. I would like to own up to that and inform you all that once again I am deeply sorry for all the damages I might’ve caused.
The account owner was me, and the person who made the account was me as well, for that reason, this whole issue was my mistake. I would like to add however, in a group chat I was in, we used to share our passwords and go into each other’s accounts and tweet every now and then. At the time the close friends I have shared my password with tweeted on my account and used my account frequently. Although this did happen, the owner of the account is me, and me not knowing what was being tweeted and posted is my fault. I once again genuinely apologize.
I would also like to say I would never make a racist or racially charged statement to anyone, as a person of colour myself coming from a racially diverse community, I understand the complexity and seriousness of racism and racial discrimination. This also includes micro aggressions and other cultural offences that lead to the bigger picture of racism.
This is a genuine message that I wanted to write, once again I am very sorry. Moving forward from this situation, I will work harder and show my ability to improve.
