TWICE‘s Chaeyoung has been accused of fomenting hatred through her social networks, since the idol allegedly published a series of photographs of herself wearing a T-shirt with a swastika printed on it, a highly censored symbol used by the Germans in one of the most terrible conflicts of humanity.
Of course, Chaeyoung did not take long to respond to the amount of comments and messages that her fans and followers sent her, warning her of the terrible controversy she was causing, the South Korean idol immediately removed the images and publications, after this the artist spoke out about it, apologizing for the serious mistake she had made, since, she assures, she had no idea of the history behind the symbol with 45 degree tilt.
This symbol has a different meaning in the Asian culture, since it is the same, the only thing that could differentiate them is the inclination of the swastika, the religious one does not present this inclination. So it was not very difficult to deduce that Chaeyoung was not lying about it, and her apology was sincere, her quick action, helped a lot to keep a clean reputation from this kind of fanaticism.
