In an interview on KBS, the Block B rapper told reporters, "I personally read all of those pleas online telling me not to use racial slurs. But I was like, wtf *s*o***! You want me to be less offensive? I'ma go harder."
So he did.
On Nov. 6, the non-acclaimed idol rapper drew an angry online response with his new release, "Oppa Is Just The Worst, Isn't He?" which featured both racial and homophobic slurs. The new album comes seven months after his last song, the less controversial "Oppa Fucking Hates You."
Upon watching the new music video, netizens responded with "I used to love Oppa more than my parents, but now, they totally come first." And "When is he going to learn that slurs are not OK? I stopped buying his songs two releases after I found out what a terrible person he is." And "Go die Zico, u suk."
* * * * *But seriously, why is everyone up in arms about Zico now? He's pulled this shit several times before.
I guess it was just one too many slurs for some people. Like 25 slurs = "It's OK Oppa. I still saranghae you 5ever"? But 26 — "You're a terrible person and bad things should happen to you"?
Or are his actions acceptable only as long as he's making good music?
Look, the lyrics and video for "Tough Cookie" make him look ridiculous. But what were you expecting? If this side of Zico surprises you, you haven't been paying enough fucking attention.
As for an MV review? "This song blows." There you go.
