AOA Jimins N-Word Scandal: Apology Done Right?

AOA’s Jimin recently came under fire for saying the N-word. Last week, she uploaded a cover of Nelly’s “Get Like Me” featuring Nicki Minaj and Pharrell Williams onto her Instagram, in which she was heard rapping the N-word. Controversy in the form of comments and shares quickly arose, with one fan even messaging Jimin directly on Instagram to tell the idol about her mistake in using this word. In response, she quickly apologised and deleted the the video.

Regarding Jimin’s apology, I am rather impressed with how prompt her response was. Not only did she recognise and acknowledge her mistake almost immediately after the comments came in, she also apologised personally instead of waiting for her company to do damage control. When responding to the fan’s message on Instagram, she apologised multiple times in English, perhaps in an attempt for international fans to understand her words. This makes her apology seem more genuine and less distant, which is to be appreciated.
