Hell hath no fury like an insulted K-pop fan.
Filipino K-pop fans are enraged and are demanding radio talk show host DJ Mo Twister (real name Mohan Gumatay) to apologize for his Twitter posts on boy band U-Kiss.
Last March 28, U-Kiss performed on “Party Pilipinas,” the new Sunday musical varitety show on GMA-7 that replaced “SOP.” The performance was part of the boy band’s Philippine promo tour for their album.
DJ Mo then posted on his public Twitter account the following messages:
“djmotwister: finally its an all-English noon time show! Hehehe”
“djmotwister: i stand corrected, these k-pop guys dont look gay, they look like lesbians.”
“djmotwister: im sorry all you k-pop fans but you cant tell me thats a heterosexual man. you just cant.”
Fans immediately set up a Facebook page called “KPOP FANS DEMAND FOR PUBLIC APOLOGY from MO TWISTER!!”
As of this writing, the page has 1,804 fans who signed up in support of the move.
Fans posted angry messages about DJ Mo’s comments.
“It’s very rude of him to say that!”
“If you don’t like K-pop it’s Ok…but making fun of the artist is really disappointing…,” was one fan’s message to DJ Mo.
Peter Chan, operations manager of Universal Records Philippines, which released U-Kiss’ album in the country, said the issue will not affect the devotion of Filipino K-pop fans to their idols.
“Everybody has the right to express their opinion about U-Kiss or any K-Pop artists, since this is a free country. Whether Mo Twister apologizes or not, this does not lessen Pinoy U-Kiss fans’ devotion and support for their favorite Korean boy band. I hope this subject can be put to rest,” said Chan in an email sent to Manila Bulletin.
Chan said this is his personal opinion and not of the record label.
Some fans have also sent a letter to GMA to complain about DJ Mo, who is part of showbiz talk show “Showbiz Central.”
DJ Mo is currently vacationing in Paris. Manila Bulletin will get DJ Mo’s side on the matter.
