In recent days, the Taiwanese host has again responded to accusations of inappropriate jokes towards LE SSERAFIM. After his allegedly misunderstanding words and his apology, he decided to speak up again and respond to some netizens regarding the controversy.

After the show was aired, he made a post giving context to his words and saying that no matter what, netizens would misunderstand it. Giving this, some netizens highlighted that he already apologized and that he does not have to mention the girls anymore, and that these actions “make you look like you apologized just for show“.
He responded to the fans by denying the allegation of his apology, saying that he only did it for “those who really felt uncomfortable because of what I said” and stating that he “never admitted to making a sexual joke or saying the wrong thing“.
In another reply, Huang Weijin blamed the dirty-minded netizens, claiming he did nothing wrong, and he said, “The situation was baffling, but I had to stay quiet while others continued to hate on me“, assuring the hard days he is having after this comment.
