SM couldn’t even wait until their second mini album before fucking up with Red Velvet

This is a record.

Only two/three hours into their debut, and Red Velvet about to catch the heat.

In their video, there are newspaper clips that speak about WWII, specifically the bombing of Hiroshima.

Also…one of the girls were playing with a toy airplane around what looked like the Twin Towers, a reference to 9/11.

I didn’t even notice this until someone pointed it out. now, I can’t even enjoy the video…WHICH I LIKED.

I am 100% positive that SM knew what they were doing. Anything involving the US on that type of scale is going to be known (we may not know much about other countries problems, but dammit everyone knows ours). I don’t think it was with malice. But that is never an excuse. A  lack of intent, does not make it any less bad. No one is going to understand why SM OK’ed these images. They are going to understand that these were two horrific times, and to put them in a very bright and positive video is lowkey/highkey fucked up.

Songs and videos like this are not uncommon, and I don’t think they get nearly as much hate…but still work.

Hopefully SM will handle this accordingly. (But you know they won’t). Hopefully Red Velvet comes back, and has a better song to give (watch SM put them on a long hiatus).

This is a mess and they ain’t even been out for a day.
