TWICE Chaeyoung's Stylist Under Fire For Controversial Music Show Outfit

TWICE Chaeyoung’s Stylist Under Fire For Controversial Music Show Outfit

She was spotted wearing a QAnon shirt.

TWICE has recently started their music show promotions for their latest single “Set Me Free.”  Though their performance at MBC‘s Music Core was more than perfect, netizens noticed the group’s rapper, Chaeyoungwearing a controversial shirt on stage and took to social media to express their frustrations with the stylist.

Chaeyoung was seen wearing a cropped shirt during the show and in pictures uploaded on Tzuyu‘s personal Instagram. Fans quickly spotted that the shirt appeared to be an altered version of a QAnon t-shirt.

The QAnon logo is a Q-shaped cutout of the United States flag, and their motto is “Where we go one, we go all”. Both the Q and the last half of the motto can be seen on Chaeyoung’s shirt.

QAnon may not be well known across the world, particularly among younger fans, but is definitely well known in the US.

It essentially is a conspiracy theory and political movement that began in 2017 when an anonymous 4chan user began posting cryptic messages under the name “Q”, claiming to have US security clearance.

QAnon is well known for being pro-Donald Trumpwith their most well-known conspiracy theory being that the former US president was at odds with a global ring of Satanic, cannibalistic child sex traffickers. They quickly became closely associated with the “Pizzagate” conspiracy, which claimed that politicians in the Democrat party were abusing children at a pizzeria in Washington DC. The pizzeria was later attacked by an armed gunman who believed in the conspiracy.

Later, in 2020, QAnon followers made various attempts to discredit or overturn the 2020 US election after Donald Trump lost to Joe Biden. They were among those who attacked the US Capitol in the infamous January 6 2021 incident, which led to several deaths.

More than just a harmless conspiracy, QAnon has been linked to dozens of incidents over the past several years, as well as accusations of anti-semitism, racism, and homophobia.

While it’s unlikely the TWICE members would be familiar, the stylist is under fire for not doing their due diligence. This is especially troublesome as the incident comes during the promotion of TWICE’s new album Ready to Bewhich is being heavily promoted in the United States.

This isn’t the first time TWICE’s stylist has put the members in inappropriate clothes. Back in 2016, Tzuyu was spotted wearing a shirt with the slogan “Hoes take off your clothes” during the group’s cover of Girls’ Generation’s “Gee.”
