omg this loof girl………………………..
im so embarrassed what………..educate urself ho……………
there r so many other fandom jokes than one that’s EXTREMELY BELITTLING AND IGNORANT
AND WHO USE “BASIC” ANYMORE?????????
Okay, Imma need all you “social justice” Kpop tumblrs to stop.
I communicate with Tracy (loof girl) regularly and I DO NOT appreciate LOOFgate.
I completely and absolutely agree with Tracy’s decision to make the loof shirts and continue saying the LOOF IS ON FIRE.
Why? Because it truly is not that serious.
I understand that many believe that the LOOF word is offensive because it makes fun of Asian pronunciation of English words (which is the huge controversy) but in this instance that is not the case. In the context of the song Hurricane is the ONLY INSTANCE where the word LOOF is used, not in any other instance. Is it a joke? Yes. Is it potentially offensive? Probably. Will Himchan cry himself to sleep every night because of the LOOF? No, he better not.
What Tracy was trying to do was relay that is LOOF could be used for encouragement and not for making fun of Kim Himchan. In addition with her being pretty well knowledgeable about Korea and it’s language (her focus of studies in college) I think she knows that there is a difficulty certain sounds between languages. The encouragement is: regardless of the pronunciation we still love Kim Himchan.
So to you politically correct Kpop fan hypocrites on tumblr.
SHUT IT DOWN.
All you guys do is stir up ish on this website and have no true solution to anything.
Also where is the backlash about EXO’s Ulf, TVXQ’s Ten Ears, Mir’s Waffur, XIA Junsu’s OMG SUN!, SHINee’s Say Re Na Day (Juliette)
And MOST OF YOU MAKE FUN OF EXO’S KRIS AT EVERY CHANCE YOU GET! A man that is damn near fluent in 4 languages but (honestly) gets confused in his transitions between languages.
Same people that DON’T believe SHINee’s Key is fluent in english because he struggles in the transition sometimes.
Same people that continue to use the N-word because they have absolutely no self control and NEED to use it for whatever excuse they have.
I know that most of you on tumblr are in high school or undergrad….but stop. You do too much.
PS: But how you gonna defend the use of the word loof….then call said grown woman a “girl” and “ho” then precede to make fun of her using the term “basic”.
PSS: I still use the term “basic”
PSSS: You basic.
i literally did not read a single word
Dear Tracy Cozette
You wanna know what’s wrong with getting shirts done that says “Loof”? Let me tell you something from my perspective, something you might not understand since you’re not actually Asian. Now I may not be Korean, but I am half Japanese. Of course if any Korean people need to correct me please do so.
At the end of the video you said that B.A.P. fans were babying Himchan. I’m not even really a huge fan of B.A.P. but let me tell you something as an Asian American with an immigrant Asian mother. This is not about babying Himchan, it’s about respecting non-Westerners in the same way you would respect a Westerner, or in your case another American. You need to understand that you as a Westerner are not put up to the same standards as non-Westereners are when it comes to speaking another language. You can mess up and hey maybe some people will make fun of your accent or whatever but you will still be more or less accepted in the end. It doesn’t work that way for Asian people.
Yes, you know the struggle of learning how to speak another language, but it’s different for you because whatever language you’re learning is not considered a “powerful language” nor was it actually mandatory for you to learn Korean. English is considered that, quite obviously by how a lot of countries have made English mandatory in schools despite it not entirely making sense to considering that their native language is not English, and therefore there’s way more pressure on being able to pronounce and speak it well than there would be for other languages.
It really does not matter if you speak the Korean language or that you got a degree in East Asian studies. Naming all these places you’ve been to in Korea and all these connections you have don’t support your argument at all either. At the end of the day, you’re not Korean nor are you Asian. You have no right to speak for Korean people or for Asian people on this subject at all, which you are doing by the way, because you do not understand the discrimination Western Asian people have to face, constantly have to prove to people that yes they CAN speak English or whatever the native language is in their country, and that Asian people speaking English as a second language must face, knowing that they are constantly being judged for the way they speak by Westerners, much more harshly so than let’s say a white European speaking English as a second language would.
Wearing those shirts was not only wrong but flat out insulting. You claim to have not been trying to make fun of Himchan’s English, but right around 3:43 you completely admit that yes, you do make fun of the fact that he cannot pronounce roof right. So what was all this shit you were saying about how you didn’t like it when people were making fun of him now?
You also stated that part of embracing the word “loof” has not only to do with encouraging Himchan but also that it also has to do with breaking down cultural and language barriers. Encouraging him to do what? Be embarrassed? How is making fun of someone’s English breaking down any barriers? What you are doing literally shows no signs of being more accepting and open of other people’s cultures and languages. If anything you’re making fun of the fact that he can’t completely adapt to YOUR language. When you do this, whether you are conscious of it or not, you are looking DOWN on that person for not being able to fit in to the standards of your country.
No, I’m not gonna personally email this to you because I need the kpop fandom and everyone in general to understand what is wrong with making fun of someone’s English. This is a serious issue that happens constantly not just in a kpop context, but for Asian and Western Asian people among other foreigners coming to Western countries everyday. People have a right to know about what you and unfortunately many others have been doing.
It does not matter how much you paid for the shirts or how much you love B.A.P. What you did was wrong and you need to recognize the mistakes that you’ve made and apologize, not just to Himchan, but to everyone , especially people who are not Western or visibly Western, that have struggled with English as a second language and have faced the discrimination that has come along with it, something you will never understand.

white girls can’t wear bindis because in sixth grade one time i was dropped off at school by my aunt who was wearing a bindi at the time and some girl’s mom whispered to her friend how she would never let her daughter play with me because my family had probably been happy about 9/11 and then four years later that daughter showed up to school wearing a bindi as part of her “”“boho”“” look
