I’m sure everyone has heard about this, About CL using a Quran verse in her new song, Mental Break Down. Stuff are getting out of hand, there are Muslims who are bashing CL and there are CL stans who arent Muslim, bashing Muslims and the Quran…because of that I decided to explain everything and…
honestly i dont even know some people are saying she quoted the qur’an in the live mental breakdown performance and others are saying she didnt. And some are saying it’s disrespectful and others arent and i just idk now shes getting a shitload of hate for it so yeah but i feel like some people are jumping on the hate wagon just because
It’s getting to the point where a lot of kpop blogs are attacking Muslim bloggers and you need to fucking stop. I keep seeing the same old shit ’ well it’s not cl’s fault’ , ‘it’s the company’, ‘teddy produced it, so it’s his fault’, ’ she had no say’.
Like can we just sit around my imaginary campfire and laugh at this bullshit. Seriously, yes it’s not just CL’s fault, it’s the whole company. This album goes through many people in the company and you’re telling me that MTBD was not flagged for concern? Because it should have been.
There is no way my GCSE music teacher would have let me sample religious scriptures for music, let alone a religion that I don’t follow. He would have had a right go. I might even send him the song just to see what he says.
Idols like CL and GD have a lot of power. They can easily tell a producer ‘I’m not cool with this’ or ‘I don’t think that’s okay’. As an art student there is a very fine line between when your work is creative and when it becomes offensive. And this like many other things they do is offensive.
Just because you like something/ someone shouldn’t mean you should glorify them to the point that you justify their wrong doings, then trample on the victims after. When you do something wrong I’m pretty sure your parents correct you and point out your wrong doings. It’s not because they hate you, but it’s because they expect better.
What’s really sad here is that people are so busy defending the wrong doing that the real victims are just being overlooked.
