DAY6 Jae recent twitch live stream has gotten him into controversy!
During a recent live stream, Jae was listening to music while communicating with fans reading their comments. He was listening to J.Y Park songs and started talking about how fans shouldn’t blame him for everything that goes wrong with their favorite groups and proceeded to call those who criticize J.Y Park ‘stupid,’ he said,
“If you guys want to blame someone then you should blame the company not JY of whatever division they are under…
It’s never one person’s fault. listen it’s not JY’s fault that the management of whatever you like treats them a certain way…JYP gets all of my respect.. I don’t care if all of you leave after hearing that but that’s my opinion on it. JYP doesn’t suck and you’re STUPID if you think that.”
Before that, he addressed one comment saying ‘JYP sucks’ and proceeded to demonstrate how J.Y Park has been topping the charts over the past 30 years taking a look at one of his recent songs, he said,
“I have nothing but respect to J.Y, he’s literally the number one… like number one song writer in Korea, like mathematically and statically, he makes the most money each year…
Guys, how does JY suck? He’s been the number one for 30+years, please tell me how he sucks, you guys are actually stupid if you think he sucks.”
Fans are split on his comments; some found an issue with the fact that he called fans who find issues with the way the JYP Ent. treats their artists ‘stupid,’ others jumped into his defense saying it’s how he usually holds his twitch streams and he was calling fans that in a sarcastic way not meaning any harm. There are other fans who brought up J.Y Park past comments and controversies into the conversation to explain why they criticize J.Y Park.
