Two members of K-pop boyband Got7, one of South Korea's most popular groups, have come under fire for their behaviour at a party in Los Angeles.
Yugyeom, 18, and Bambam, 19, caused an online uproar after their antics were filmed and uploaded to Snapchat, with the footage going viral. The JYP Entertainment-formed group are often seen as 'South Korea's One Direction'.
In one club, a red-faced Yugyeom, the youngest member of the band, is seen leaning on a table. Apparently disorientated, many have suggested he was drinking underaged due to his worse-for-wear state.
More noticeably, another clip shows BamBam – who originates from Bangkok, Thailand – using the N-word. Got7's fans have given a mixed response over the bandmember's use of the term, with many defending him.
One Twitter user wrote: "It makes me mad because people say the n word everyday in Music and on the streets but when BamBam say it it's the end of the world #BamBam" while another put: "Pls don't be mad at Bambam. He really didn't know He actually said "If it's wrong tell me bc I don't know" during his concert #BamBam".
BamBam has reportedly received death threats following the incident, which was said to have been filmed at a party in fellow Got7 member Mark's family home.
Supporting the star, one fan wrote: "saying the n-word is bad, but telling bambam to kill himself for saying the slur is horrible. pls have some sense of maturity, kpop "fans"" while another said: "stop saying bad things about bambam we all know that what he did was wrong but telling him to kill himself is just too much."
