However, what caught the attention of fans was when Giselle mentioned the lyrics containing the word ‘N’, a word that is considered racist for black people.
Many of the fans admitted that they were disappointed that Giselle kept mentioning the ‘N’ word, even though she was known as a member of AESPA who was fluent in English.
After reaping a lot of controversy, SM Entertainment finally deleted the behind-the-scenes video from the aespa YouTube channel.
