It's hysterical that they actually think they're better than the idols, trainees and celebrities the boys are surrounded by daily when they're at home. Suzy is in their agency, even if they're decent looking, do they really think they come close?
I've always found Terry pretty boring but I liked listening to his videos when doing other stuff, but now all of it just makes me cringe. For me it seems to have gone massively downhill in the past 3/4 months.
Is he just a call-out channel now? Seems like a sell out looking for clicks off the big names who I have zero interest in. Kinda ironic because I bet in half of them he's calling them out for clickbaiting/attention seeking.
Did anyone else's eyes roll back into the Jurassic period when she said people were racist about the shirt? I'm assuming she means the comments that said they weren't rude to her because she's a young white woman as that's the only race related comments I can find...? Like that's not them being racist Tay, that's them explaining white privilege to you. I went through Ctrl F on the comments for a whole bunch of titty/shirt related keywords and 80% of them seemed positive, I couldn't find anything about race and only a few comments were actually rude, there were far more saying they loved her shirt I agree that some were quite sexist/old fashioned though. Hopeful that she was meaning something else, maybe the few people being a bit rude about HK or something. Reverse racism doesn't exist.
I'm not shading you guys (I agree it was more fun even when we saw her jus going for coffee and nosing around department stores) but I'm pretty sure when Tay made those videos all everyone here did was complain about how all she does is shop and she's so shallow...
Whoever called the James Charles facetune on the Social Media thread was spot on, unfortunately... Does she have 0 awareness of the fact that like... he was racist? And he's basically a joke in the beauty community? I mean after dressing up as Ricegum I'm not surprised I guess.
Have you been there...? It's not dirty at all... Even the public toilets are spotless. Idk where you're from but it's imo 10x cleaner than London or most major cities here in the UK. Outside of MK there's little to no trash on the streets at all. Also all the metro trains and stations are spotless, another thing that's usually gross in most of Europe. If you're basing your whole opinion from what you've seen of Mong Kok in Tays video, which is basically just a big market area and probably the most un-manicured major retail area in the country(or SAR if you're being technical), you're generalizing reaaallllyyy hard...
Half the country is made up of stunning luxury high rises and shopping malls, like IFC and Festival Walk. The air quality isn't always great but there's not much they can do about that since it's mostly from China.
(If I sound a bit defensive it's because I am, I love HK.)
I was going to write this in the YT comments but honestly he's more likely to see it here lmao. If you do see it pls try to read it all with an open mind. I'm one of the people who considered myself a fan of yours who you've sort of alienated.
Why do you hate political correctness? If you're coming from a place where you mean well, then political correctness shouldn't be a bother for you at all.
The 'political correctness bandwagon' isn't a bandwagon anymore, it's past that and people are just aware of how things that are said can harm people, and it's not looking to tear you down because it hates you personally. Look at it and figure out why you hate it so much. Do you hate that these people are just opposing your opinion and take it as a personal attack? Do you hate the insinuation that you're doing something wrong when you don't understand how? Is it because you can't admit that something you thought might have been ill-informed? It happened to Jackson Wang when he had dreads, he didn't understand what the problem was and then his 'apology' made everyone more angry because he just took it as an attack. That was partially because anti's used it as an excuse to rip in to him, but if he'd read the well meaning posts from fans explaining the backlash he might have understood. I get that it can be hard to take someone seriously (especially people here) when they're probably calling you an asshole or whatever in the same sentence but it's because they're frustrated.
Honestly, it's really, really easy to avoid offending people, especially if you have good intentions, all you have to do is read and try to understand. For the longest time I never understood cultural appropriation and thought it was 'pc bullshit', but then I read a bunch of posts from POC who felt so hurt and wronged and it actually made sense to me, it finally clicked. It's unfair that these people are actively hurt and bullied but when a white person does the same thing they're celebrated? Educating someone on that, trying to make them understand isn't being 'politically correct' for no reason, it's just try to stop someone from hurting someone else. What's wrong with that? You're allowed your own opinion, but when you voice it, people are also free to criticize you for it.
For example, the Kyla video. You say you meant well, but I really don't understand how as I don't really understand what the actual purpose of the video was. Given her brothers reaction, it's fair to say that your opinion probably hurt her. I think everyone understands what you said in the video, you were explaining the current views on chubby/bigger than average idols in the industry. You were explaining some common negative views. Really, if I made a video and said "A popular online criticism of Edward Avila is that his foundation is too pale. I think maybe he should change his foundation so that he appeals to more people." it wouldn't be any different to what you did. I could say I made that video meaning well but there isn't really any purpose behind it. Why should you or Kyla have to change to appeal to more people, when with these two examples, weight and foundation, don't harm anyone? ((I think if you came out and said I admit its a little lighter but that's how I like it, rather than these neckshadow excuses, the foundation issue would probably drop pretty quickly)) Kyla is young and she's not even close to being big enough for it to impact her health. You're not fat, or chubby, you're not in the idol industry, you're not a doctor or promoter, you're not a worried fan, so it's not something you really needed to talk about, there's no reason for you to be concerned about her. That topic in particular probably cause extra backlash because it's talking about a weight issue. Talking about someones weight is treated so differently in the West than it is in the East, and while in my view both of them are wrong, most of your viewers are western and were gonna get pretty pissed with the topic from the get go.
But people wanting you to change to be 'more pc' isn't the same as wanting you to lose/gain weight or change your makeup. It's coming from wanting you to think about what you're saying in the context of it harming others, I would say that makes it valid criticism.
If you read something about a social issue, fully, and at the end you think 'fuck that this is bullshit', then you're not being 'well meaning but blunt', you just don't actually care whether you hurt people or not.
If you don't want to read into the politics of social issues, then don't talk about social issues.
