Jay Park is in hot water once more after being charged of “cultural appropriation” in relation to his album, “DNA Remix.” In his music video, the rapper and singer is accused of copying African American culture.
Jay Park can be seen rapping in the video and flaunting his tattoos and dreadlocks as part of his appearance. The song’s purported appreciation of Korean culture was quickly picked up on by viewers, who also pointed out that the music video appropriated African American culture.
Jay Park left a lengthy message underneath the official video in reaction to the allegations. In an attempt to defend himself, the singer said that he had no intention of “stealing culture.” He said:
“We are not the majority picking on the minority and we are not trying to steal culture. If anything we are allies and probably have the most understanding over here and can set things straight with people who make assumptions about hip hop or black culture based on shallow headlines.”
“You guys made the blue print which we are greatly appreciative of because hip hop gave me everything I have today. With the internet and hip hop being such a global mainstream genre each country has their own hip hop scene unique to their own culture now based on your blueprint.”
In August 2022, Jay Park was accused of using a racial slur during his performance at the MIK Festival 2022 in London.
Jay Park himself later posted on Twitter concerning rumors being created about him. He also posted a clip of his performance along with the message, “London was awesome and yes, I shouted out Dua Lipa because we’re in the UK.”
