Background

K-Pop star Jay Park came under heavy criticism especially from his Muslim fans after they discovered that the rapper compared himself to Allah in his song MUKKBANG (Remix).

Following the criticism, the Korean rapper released an apology statement on his Twitter.

 

 

He clarified in the statement that at first, he didn’t see it as a problem, but after reading comments from Muslim fans, he realized that it’s not his place to decide what the word means, as the Muslim community sees it as something very meaningful.

MUKKBANG (Remix), which was released in 2020, sparked renewed controversy on Twitter recently after users highlighted Jay Park’s verse in the song.

The lines, “Worship mе like Allah / Get it done like wallah” caught the attention of Muslim fans who then heavily criticized Jay Park for being “disrespectful” and “Islamophobic.”

 

 

We’re glad the K-Pop star has come out with an apology. May this be a lesson to everyone to respect the boundaries of different religions and cultures.
