Tamil actor Sivakarthikeyan came under the radar of angry netizens over his controversial racist remark while addressing school children at an event. A video is going viral on the social media where Sivakarthikeyan is seen mocking Korean language and also made racist remarks on the appearance of Koreans. And it didn’t go down well with netizens who slammed the Tamil actor for his insensitive comments. Sivakarthikeyan made the comments at an event while talking about a comedy scene from his latest film ‘Don’.
The actor said, “Whenever I see Korean movies, I feel like all the actors in them are the same. Sometimes it’s hard to tell the heroes from heroines.”
Many users slammed the actor and said that Sivakarthikeyan needs to attend the sensitization workshops. The Tamil star’ school speech is being bashed for encouraging racism in the presence of students.
One of the netizen tweeted: Sivakarthikeyan mocks Korean language (based on that racist “comedy” sequence from Don), says all koreans look alike, and their women look like men. All these in an event at a school, in front of kids! Our celebrities badly need to attend special sensitisation workshops!
Another netizen wrote: Fat, bald wrinkled, dark, skinny, ghostly! adjectives are endless when it comes to body shaming. How many had a laugh over ‘The Legend” when he made his debut. Sivakarthikeyan was wrong/ belittling/ tacky/ shaming Koreans. So are those, who do too in immediate circles. Stop judging.
