Baekhyun's statement of putting down autistic people

At 2:37, EXO members play a game and Baekhyun calls the losers "autistic kids". It became controversial and SM re-uploaded the video with his words muted.

Later, he participated in a Chinese public advertisement of supporting autistic children.


Pann: EXO Baekyun's double standards (putting down autistic people)

1. [+239, -86] They're downvoting this just because they can't refute ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Amazing~

2. [+224, -82] Look how these fans are downvoting it because they can't shield this one ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+164, -61]

4. [+70, -22] Honestly, since Taengkoong incident, I've thought that Baekhyun is immature. He can sing and he looks cute but... he's like a male Sulli. Not their faces, but their personalities and stuff. Baekhyun got into SM without a struggle and he's one of the most promoted members by SM.

5. [+62, -5] When I went to middle and high schools, I never saw boys calling each other autistic except a couple of immature ones. I go to a top university and everyone talks properly here. Uttering "autistic kids" easily doesn't look like he'd have a good personality.

6. [+57, -12] Hul, I didn't know about this. Fans still like him after this? So personalities don't matter as long as you like their looks? I'm so shocked.

7. [+47, -10] These guys are so controversial, starting from Chanyeol's offensive gesture towards mothers.

8. [+33, -2] Drinking as a high school student which is completely illegal and putting down autistic people as a celebrity... Fans always say Baekhyun is a nice person, but I don't trust what they say. The fact that he's influencing teens as an idol singer is extremely problematic.


Pann: EXO Baekhyun's double standards who puts down autistic people

1. [+191, -59] Baekhyun has a delinquent past. Just look at the picture of him at a bar when he was underage, tsk tsk.

2. [+191, -23] I really don't like words and curses like "disabled kid", "autistic kid", "cancerous", and "suicidal". It sounds like you're putting down autistic people, disabled people, people with a cancer, and suicidal people. You only look immature and cheap.

3. [+172, -80] Kai: "Are you disabled?"

4. [+81, -4] His fans are gonna bring Baekhyun's non-existent old friends and claim "he's nice."

5. [+78, -10] He doesn't look like a nice person, he has a lot of controversies.

6. [+63, -5] I hope Chanyeol also films a public advertisement of not swearing at parents.
