The influencer has since apologized to IU and her fans and stated that it was done by accident and that she didn’t mean it.

Korean netizens, however, felt otherwise stating, “It’s obvious that she did it on purpose,” “Doesn’t westerners apologize right away,” “She bumped into the ‘Asian’ girl on purpose then saw her followers and got her mind right,” “Bumped into her and didn’t even look at her, this is right out racism” among others.
