The 23-year-old rapper of Twice, Chaeyoung is under hot water after she uploaded a now-deleted picture of herself on Instagram wearing a top that became a piece of attention. The singer posted a series of images from her leisure time in the United States during the group’s World Tour. In one of the pictures, she was spotted wearing a top featuring bassist Sid Vicious from S*x Pistols. That punk icon featured a swastika, which made her photo in a negative light as the symbol refers to be associated with the Nazis which made netizens quite furious.
Many took to Twitter to share their opinions on the since-deleted picture.
People need to be very careful because dogwhistles are rarely apparent. A Korean pop star, Chaeyoung, for the band TWICE has wore a shirt containing a swastika and a shirt promoting the conspiracy Q-anon all in the past week. This is no mistake, she is actively dogwhistling. pic.twitter.com/zUzLOIfXje

nobody is accusing chaeyoung of being a neo nazi, but being passive or not caring about wearing such a major hate symbol like that, ESPECIALLY as a public figure is still so insanely harmful. and so wrong like i can't even believe her

This is my point, we know it's not intentional but they are so careful not to get themselves into Korean related scandals but when it comes to other groups whether it's black people or jews there's no caution or care bcos they arent effected by it or relate to it
