CLC Sorn is currently trending at number 1 on twitter and it’s not for what you expect!
CLC Sorn recently posted a selfie with her friends, however, fans were quick to find an issue with the photo, one of her friends was wearing a racist caricature black mask. A mask that the African American community find very offensive and racist.
Shortly after Sorn posted that photo, fans tried to educate her about the issue and explain why the photo should be deleted since it’s problematic and racist. Since many idols are from Asian countries, sometimes they might make mistakes/remarks that are racists without realizing how offensive and racist it is for their international fandom.
She deleted the photo soon. However, fans saw that she posted a photo asking people to ‘chill’ which many assumed to be the response to how she was criticized for this controversy, and it made many of her fans angry and disappointed. She posted a selfie with the caption,
“Sometimes, some ppl just gotta chill, I am not stupid.”
Fans believed that Sorn was aware of why the mask is racist, but chose to reply with that and refused to apologize for hurting her fans. However, when she was asked about the photo, she explained that it is no way related to the controversy and she was simply ranting about something else.
That was a post I posted of me ranting about something else which has nothing to do with this situation. Sorry for the confusion :’(

NOTE: Some fans even posted about the time stamp for both photos and how the photo where she asks people to chill was posted before the controversial photo. However, we have no way to accurately prove that since the photos have since been deleted.
So apparently #SORN made that instagram story BEFORE posting that picture☠ why are people tripping without checking facts.
As you can see, the story was posted around 18:00 or earlier, but the tweet was made around 19:25… pic.twitter.com/HGgvUzT2Px

Dear Sorn fans, Obama looks nothing like that mask portrays and even if that were the case. It’s a mockery and a form of blackface. Not acceptable. Y’all need to chill on skipping school since we want to flash our uneducated as well as ignorance colors today. You cult of 🤡s. pic.twitter.com/qXikR6uYgs

Its very disappointing finding out one of your faves is rooting for a racist act and a perosn and is acknowledging it and feeling no remorse, neither apologizes or address it, truly disappointed.

People are really saying sorn wasn’t being racist 🤡 she took the picture knowing that her friend was wearing an offensive mask. She took it upon herself to post it online and ended up deleting it. Meaning she was aware just didn’t care. Don’t tell people to chill it’s rude asf.

Ya’ll should just say you’re insecure. Not everything is “racist”. Its just a fucking mask people! Stop overreacting and Leave Sorn alone. She’s not the cause of your problems. pic.twitter.com/GUe4uIo80M
