Jay Park’s Kpop Muslim Fans Are Not Happy With Him Mentioning “Allah” In His Lyric
We haven’t been hearing the name “Jay Park” in a while, and sadly this time around he is trending in Malaysia for all the wrong things. Jay Park, his real name Park Jae Beom, angered his Muslim fans due to controversial lyrics in his song “Mukbang (Remix)”.
Muslim Kpop fans started expressing their thoughts about the Kpop rapper’s lyrics “Worship me like Allah, Get it done like wallah”, calling him islamophobic, disrespecting their religion. While the song was released back in December 2020, it was somehow resurfaced recently, causing a big scene for Jay Park and his production team.
Jay Park’s fans flooded Twitter with #JayParkApologizeToMuslims and how mad they are about Korean artists disrespecting someone else’s religion.

We never ask you to understand every single thing that is happening in the world. But not knowing isn't the same as taking something lightly. You are able to not know something but still respect it. That way you don't hurt anyone.#JayParkApologizeToMuslims pic.twitter.com/kWftOco2Aq — Aisyah 🇮🇩 🇵🇸 (@ahr_hiatus) May 27, 2021
