The photo became the target of eagle-eyed netizens, where they pointed out that the guy in the right was wearing a “horrific, undeniably racist mask”. A fan later clarified that the man was wearing a vintage Pele (legendary football player) caricature mask.

In response, Sorn took to her Instagram to address the drama. She posted another selfie on Instagram selfie, along with the caption that reads, “Sometimes some people just gotta chill. I’m not stupid.” Her statement has in turn received further negative remarks from netizens.

Many fans have taken to Twitter to express their frustration and disappointment towards the Thai K-pop idol. As a result, Sorn (real name Chonnasorn Sajakul) has become a trending topic on social media.

Despite the negative reactions, some fans, namely Cheshires (CLC fans) have also come forward to defend their idol. Check out some of the fans’ reactions below:

Following the massive backlash, both Sorn as well as the alleged friend of hers – known as Randy Wong – took to their Instagram accounts to publicly apologise to those who were offended by her tweet.

The two posted a lengthy statement to express their regret for being unaware what was perceived as a fun snapshot was deemed culturally insensitive. Feel free to read their posts below:

Hopefully both Sorn and Randy can learn from this incident.
