Jenny Hyun, a K-pop songwriter, sparked controversy when she went on a racist rant against black people on her twitter account.
On February 16th, the songwriter shocked followers with a long series of racists tweets. The tweets were in response to a tweet from Floyd Mayweather who tweeted the following message about Asian NBA star Jeremy Lin: "Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he's Asian. Black players do what he does every night and don't get the same praise."
Hyun responded to Mayweather's tweet by comparing black people to "sub-human, ungrateful apes", calling for the eradication of the black race and claiming the world would be a better place without them.
Below are the tweets from Hyun's twitter account:
Hyun locked her twitter account after the controversy grew and issued an official apology on her blog. However, the blog entry seemed insincere. The songwriter stated that she "regrets nothing" in regard to her controversial tweets.
