    Fun Fact: I watch TWICE "Heart Shaker" at least once a day. Totally ignorant to most of the KPOP world but it instantly brings a smile to my face. Anyway have a great day. Timecodes: Ethan vs KPOP (00:08), Walmart Banned a shirt so now everyone wants one (2:46), TIA (4:19), New Zealand Volcano (5:56), India's Controversial New Bill (7:53)

    Kpop and Pop music in general are for the most shallow people out there. It's absolutely garbage, taken form a subjective point of view.
    I don't understand why people are so musically inept. There's so much good, real music and artists out there. Why settle for that garbage cash-grab?

    i‘m glad to see ppl in the comments that aren’t ARMY or kpop fans in general who still recognize that ethan was in the wrong because racism is racism. homophobia is homophobia. disgusting comments passed off as “jokes” to try and sound edgy actually just make you a horrible person and i’m happy that most people recognize that. we aren’t just defensive fangirls.

    Ain't Ethan a grown ass man himself(with a wife and a kid 2), he is also capitalizing off a young audience bcuz of his #edgy humor and that he "has guts enough" to post it. I swear ppl busts a nut to him now n then bcuz who does not like his hairy man boobs. Jokes aside, dear Ethan please settle down and stop being so ignorant about your "opinions" not actually hurting others feelings and minds mindsets. #H3H3settledown

    Fanbases are very diverse. I'm not denying that some kpop stans are odd like that, but not all. We would have respected if you would have just said that you dont like kpop and left it there. Some people also get mad if you say you dont like kpop, buy rarely. Please don't judge a whole genre based on a few bad eggs. Most kpop stans will be perfectly fine and treat you the same and respect your opinions. Everyone has something they love, please respect it! I'm not trying to start fights, but rather than facts perhaps he was listing insults? Please do not give me hate, I'm a peaceful person but I personally this has gone too far.

    Edit: Okay so I wrote this in the beginning of the video. Now I'm a little more upset. It didnt seem like a joke to many. And, do you really think those suicides are our fault? Tell that to the people who tried to help them and always said positive things to them.

    Edit 2: but also I would forgive you because everyone has their own opinion and their will always be people who criticize.

    I mean, if he was going to make a joke about some weird fans then he should make it sure to define 'some', not make it seem like the whole fanbase is like that.

    Damn either this comments section didn't understand what Ethan said or can't take criticism and calling him a racist

    BTS members are not gay. They are normal person in Korea. They are just handsome and talented. Ethan has no knowledge about other countries. I mean he is really narrow minded like a fish in a little pond.

    I listen to Kpop but I don't like the fandom. And about that old guy Ethan, I don't know him, so hearing a "middle eastern looking bearded strange fat guy" call East Asian men gay and say something inappropriate about young girls ain't funny.

    He didn’t mind when people were going crazy for bands like 1D but just because BTS is the first kpop band to become worldwide famous, he couldn’t digest it 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻If he would have just left it at “ I don’t like kpop,don’t get it” it would have been just fine but he insulted people who like bts and kpop called them lil girls jerking off to kpop boys.He sexualised our love for BTS and called it a sexual fetish.Btw I’m 26 from India so not a little girl but yes armies don’t have any age or place or any kind of limit. Let me explain why people love BTS so much. There are plenty of things to love about BTS, and it’s easy enough to fall for the group’s quality music, spectacular choreographies, and lovable members. But one of the reasons BTS has become so widely popular is that people connect with their music on a deeply personal level: their songs are about following dreams, challenging norms, and staying true to yourself in the face of uncertainty. Because the members themselves overcame adversity to achieve their dreams, they have an incredible gift for penning lyrics that inspire audiences around the world to do the same.

    Who cares, people can have opinions about anything. Ethan is being real to his character and there's nothing wrong with that.

    Disclaimer: If you disagree, don't kill don't do anything drastic. Okay? While your thing is popular, just know that not everyone likes what you like.

    the india story is concerning although if the government used it in the way you implied i'd imagine that the bill would also have to pass through india's high courts where it could be struck down

    As a kpop fan, I don't understand why BTS blew up either - but I just don't get why people hate kpop that much. I can take jokes, but he's not the only one that hates it to "that extent".

    I’m not a fan of Kpop either but what Ethan said is bigger than Kpop. It’s racist and disgusting. He just finds an excuse to talk about it publicly.
