Apology Not Accepted! Celebrity Hao Ren Uploaded An Apology Video After His Blackface MV Backlash But Some Think He Still MISSED The Point

So, Malaysian celebrity Chao Ren has uploaded an apology video following the backlash he received over his très problematic music video. (If you still don't know what all the fuss is about, you can watch the video here.)


In this 7-minute long video, Hao Ren repeatedly apologized for the commotion he caused and proceeded to explain his intended concept for the music video, stating that the girl was meant to be portrayed as sunburned as opposed to blackface.

But some think he missed the point, entirely. 

Regardless of his intention or initial concept of the music video (which he repeatedly justified in his half-assed apology video as many are saying), it still doesn't excuse the fact that the music video reeks of colorism and the sick, outdated message that fair-skinned individuals hold more societal values than those with darker skin.

His comment section on Instagram is currently flooded with even more backlash after the apology video, which is probably not the outcome Hao Ren had expected.

Many are calling him out for not acknowledging the real reason as to why people are outraged.

Looks like someone needs a new PR team.

It's 2021, blatant disregard towards people of color should be left behind in 2020 already, along with bogus whitening products. With so many resources across the internet, let's hope Hao Ren will dedicate his time to educating himself more on colorism and why it is completely unacceptable in this era. 

What do you think? Should his apology be accepted? Let us know in the comments.
