(On a previous episode of Running Man, Lee Kwangsoo became controversial by calling Hyejeong 'kkot-baem' (gold-digger) and saying things like "stupid idiot" and "shut up". Some netizens complained and even ran national petitions.)

1. [+311, -92] Why does this need a warning, though ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+211, -29] I hope the same netizens did a national petition when Jun Somin made a penis joke to Yoo Jae Suk and gave a warning? I'm sure those netizens didn't find a problem with that. Of course, these feminists got triggered by the 'kkot-baem' word.

3. [+156, -27] What's wrong with kkot-baem? We have no problem with calling male celebrities jebi (male gold-digger) and pervert.

4. [+140, -18] They should know how to take a joke... How does deserve a national petition? People have too much time in their hands.

5. [+64, -9] Speechless... If a female celebrity calls a male celebrity jebi, would that get a warning, too?

6. [+16, -2] They think a variety show is a documentary ㅋㅋ Instead of going crazy over this issue, they should be investigating corrupt politicians instead.

7. [+13, -0] They're ruining a variety show again... They think this is nothing... Once you get a warning like that, you find yourself talking less. Kwangsoo's role is 50% of the entire show, it's gonna ruin Running man~

8. [+16, -5] You should know that this is a variety show. It's not like Kwangsoo said that on purpose~ He didn't try to make her feel bad, it was for a variety show. If you find it too rude, then you should complain to the PD.
