SBS Show “Comedy Hunter” Uses Blackface in an Extremely Tasteless Comedy Sketch

I wonder how many times a South Korean entertainment company will showcase Blackface, before even they get bored of the upheaval, and backlash? 

SBS is a renowned broadcasting company. To put things into perspective, let’s compare it to BBC, ITV, FOX, CNN etc… I think you catch my drift. It produces some of our favourite K-Dramas, variety shows, and not to mention one of the top music shows, Inkigayo 인기가요!

In my opinion, this has got to be the worst (so far, because I’m sure there is more to come), “performance” that I’ve seen. The fact that this character starts to dance and chant, with the sounds of “The Lion King” in the background…

This is disgusting.

The character’s appearance?

  • She wears a grass skirt, made out of lettuce/cabbage
  • All brown clothing, to act as the black skin
  • Leopard print
  • A large flower necklace
  • Braids with multi-coloured beads
  • Big, brightly painted lips
  • A bald patch in the middle of her head, with a leek sprouting out of the top.

Before this leek is exposed, she actually is wearing a hat made out of feathers- a kind of Native American headdress.

This is even worse… the two types of people and cultures are not even differentiated.

Are black people a joke?

Are they uncivilised savages, that don’t know how to conduct themselves or act humanely?

The sketch portrays all of these things.

Prediction:

SBS will prepare a statement/public apology; bla bla bla!

And in the near future, something else will pop up, “shocking” us all once again.
