A Twitter user tweeted a video where Yaebin is seen uttering the slur while singing the song. In a series of tweets, the user urged fans to inform Yaebin about the usage of such derogatory words. Her tweet read:

“I don’t want to overstep and if I am please let me know but I do not see anyone tweeting about this and it shouldn’t go ignored. Yesterday Yaebin said the — word while rapping on her IG live”.

It continued, “i don’t tweet this to call everyone to cancel her but we should definitely do something. if you want to dm her some informative sources on ig, her @ is yaebby_kang”

Followed by: “i think this should go without saying but please don’t ask sungyeon or kyla about this, they are not involved in the situation at all, they’re not even in the same group.”

On Wednesday, Yaebin posted an apology to her Instagram Stories. She wrote: “What I did was really wrong. On yesterday’s live I was singing Nicki Minaj’s super bass and the word was included, I tried to censor it by myself but realized I couldn’t when I saw my video. I was so disrespectful for saying that word. Many people noticed me about how that word has a huge historical background. I admit I was so insensitive and ignorant.”

The same user, who posted the video on Twitter, also tweeted the apology writing: “update: yaebin posted an apology to her ig story”

In today’s time, fans want to see their idols owing up to their mistakes. But at times they feel such apologies may be written by their staff and the celebrity might not mean it. Here are some reactions to Yaebin’s apology on the microblogging site.
