Rappers BewhY and Khundi Panda are under heavy fire for their behavior and attitude on “DAY6’s Kiss the Radio.”
On January 15, BewhY and Khundi Panda appeared on “DAY6’s Kiss the Radio.” video clips of their appearance are trending all over social media with fans expressing their disappointment with the rappers for their behavior. During the show, they turned down multiple fans requests and swore as well.
DAY6’s Young K was also praised for handling the interview as professionally as possible. Here are some examples of why they were under fire:
When Young K asked BeWhy if it’s possible to do an acrostic, he firmly said, ‘it wouldn’t be possible.’ And When Young K asked BeWhy to comment on Khundi Panda’s rap style, BewhY said, “He’s fucking good.” Young K attempted to phrase it better since swearing isn’t allowed on the show, he said, ‘maybe you mean, he’s like really really good?’ but BeWhy said, ‘he’s fucking good.’
When one fan asked them to rap live, Khundi Panda replied, “I forgot the lyrics.” and when another fan asked him to say her name adding it’s her wish for the new year, he first refused saying ‘I don’t feel like doing it,’ before reluctantly doing it.
Added to that, both of their cellphones weren’t on silent while they filmed for the show.
Various clips of them circulated online and netizens bombarded them with comments about their attitude, due to the severe backlash, on January 16, their agency Dejavu Group issued an apology on behalf,
“Our artists BewhY and Khundi Panda appeared on ‘DAY6’s Kiss the Radio’ on January 15 at 10 p.m. KST and made the listeners uncomfortable with their inappropriate attitude. We sincerely apologize for that.”
The agency also added that they apologize for causing discomfort for everyone, including Young K of DAY6, the staff of ‘DAY6’s Kiss the Radio,’ and fans of DAY6, they stated they personally contacted the staff and the DJ to express their deepest apologies.
However, many netizens weren’t happy with the agency issuing an official apology on the behalf of the rappers, many believe that the rappers should apologize themselves for their attitude.
