If you haven't heard yet, a member of the rookie group, A.KOR, Kemy released a rather intense diss track aimed toward YG and Park Bom. After Bom's staff attempted to retaliate with mixed results and Blackjacks all over the globe shat all over their Facebook and Twitter pages causing them to take their pages down entirely, a twitter user posing as Kemy trolled the media by posting a fake apology translated below:
I didn’t know my diss toward Park Bom senior would gain so much attention…I feel very apologetic to fans of 2NE1 and Park Bom senior….I’m so sorry, everyone. Please show a lot of love for A.KOR!!
 Upon seeing the status update, netizens either reacted by saying that she shouldn't be apologizing or by believing she did the right thing because she showed major disrespect towards her senior in the industry. Little did they know, they were falling for some troll's trick.

When I first saw the news, I was a little disappointed. Part of releasing a diss track is that you have to be unapologetic about it and if you take it back unless you want to look like a wimp who couldn't handle the backlash of trash talking someone. Luckily, it turned out to be fake but it didn't end there.

 It was soon after the company released a statement saying that the twitter account was fake that they released yet another:
The agency showed concern as they continue to attract negative attention from YG fans and even had to deal with a false apology on Twitter through an impersonator as well as diss tracks from Park Bom’s fans.

It was only a diss track meant for submission into a rap competition, nothing more and nothing less, which is why we have remained quiet on the topic. However, as an 18-year-old girl is in great shock over all this, we will finish this week’s set schedule and then wrap up promotions.
So after all the shitty diss tracks released by fans in Park Bom's stead, a fake Twitter post, and all around negative attention received from YG fans and Blackjacks, DOO Republic finally spoke up about the ordeal. At first glance, I thought it might have been an official apology from the company in the hopes of calming things down. However, upon closer inspection, the word "apology" or any word or phrase close to that meaning is present in the statement and I'm not the only one who noticed either.

I'm unsure as to whether DOO Republic is taking a smart approach to this situation or not. I do think it's a good idea to stop A.KOR's promotions. However, it may not have been the best idea to basically say "fuck off, it was for a rap competition that was none of your business". They also tried to play the pity card for Kemy who most likely did not intend for this to happen or at the very least did not foresee it going this far.

I don't think this is the end of all this diss track drama, either. Angry Blackjacks are not happy with the lack of an apology while netizens outside of the fandom believe Kemy shouldn't have to apologize.

So what do you guys think? Should an official apology be released? If not, how do you think DOO Republic should handle the situation? Leave your comment below!
