However, the emotion disappeared when the idol received racist comments from paparazzi. A fan shared a video of the idol on networks where you can hear a derogatory comment towards him.
And the fans are not happy after these words.

In the busy environment with so much noise it’s hard to hear clearly, but when Jhonny didn’t hear the paparazzi decor “Johnny Suh, over here, on this side please” the man continued saying “He doesn’t understand a word I’m saying. Fuck“.
The racist photographer?? I'm tired of idols being disrespected in the US SPECIALLY when they are from the US, JOHNNY IS AMERICAN https://t.co/LaIFW0BuQm

The photographer’s assumption that the idol couldn’t understand his words made fans angry, especially since Jhonny is from Chicago so he speaks English fluently.
