“WTF are kpop stylists doing?? It’s like they’ll make an idol wear any shirt with english on it if it’s ~aesthetic~ enough,” one fan wrote on Reddit. “WHERE WAS CHAEYOUNG ON JAN 6th?!” one commenter said on TikTok.
It’s unclear whether Son owns the clothes or if they were the work of a stylist, but fans pointed out she’d posted herself wearing the swastika T-shirt in another Instagram earlier this month.
JYP Entertainment, the management company Twice is signed to, issued an apology on Tuesday as well for the swastika T-shirt. “We deeply apologize for not thoroughly reviewing it from the label side, being absolutely responsible for this situation,” the statement reads.
