aespa’s Giselle posted an apology for mouthing a racial slur from SZA’s song.
Recently, SM Entertainment posted the behind-the-scenes video of asepa’s “Savage” shooting. In the short clip, Giselle was seen singing along to SZA’s song “Love Galore” playing on the set. Soon, the artist came heavily under fire from overseas fans for mouthing the word “nig–s” in the lyrics.
On the 25th, Giselle posted an apology on asepa’s Twitter account regarding that recent controversy. She wrote, “I would like to apologize for mouthing the wrongful word from the lyrics of the song that was playing on-site. I had no intentions of doing it with any purpose and got carried away when one of my favorite artist’s song was played. I sincerely apologize.”
Then she added, “I will continue to learn and be more conscious of my actions.”
Meanwhile, aespa is currently promoting their latest smash Savage in earnest.
I will continue to learn and be more conscious of my actions.
