US-based Korean-American songwriter scored for racist tweets By JONATHAN M. HICAP February 20, 2012, 11:00am MANILA, Philippines - A New York City-based Korean-American songwriter, who co-wrote one of the songs for Girls’ Generation’s “The Boys” album, is getting so much flack for tweeting comments against African-Americans/blacks. Jenny Hyun, who was born and raised in the US, got criticized for her posts on Twitter that targeted blacks. The controversy stemmed Jenny Hyun (Photos courtesy of when Hyun tweeted to direct her anger against boxer Floyd Mayweather, who earlier posted a tweet on NBA player Jeremy Lin. “Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he's Asian. Black players do what he does every night and don't get the same praise,” Mayweather tweeted. From there, Hyun started posting several angry tweets. “Floyd Mayweather disrespecting Jeremy Lin because he’s Asian? Dude, come back when your people learn how to be human,” she posted. She added, “Floyd Mayweather, your people brag about all the muscles they have except for the muscle that actually counts. #Neanderthal. F***ing idiot. You should be WORSHIPPING Asians you sub-human ungrateful APE @FloydMayweather.” And to make things worse, Hyun fired off more tweets that targeted African-Americans/blacks. “Your culture is DISGUSTING, your people are equally as DISGUSTING. Disrespectful, violent, arrogant, stupid. The only way black people are able to advance in any way is through white people. It reminds me of a little something called SLAVERY,” she added. She also fired a tweet against the late Whitney Houston, saying, “So Whitney Houston was that much of a loss? Is it even worth listening to such a beautiful voice if it also comes with ALL THAT BAGGAGE?” Hyun added, “I know things won’t change much. People don’t see things in a bigger perspective than the immediate present. They’ve been around so long. We don’t know what it’s like with them not here. But imagine a world with NO BLACK PEOPLE. All the tension in every aspect of life would be drastically improved without them around. And ONLY them.” “Think about all the money we would save not having to give to their never ending charities. Replacing a black worker with any other race would see better efficiency, better quality of work. We don’t have to tip-toe around race issues since everybody else in the world basically looks Hispanic or Indian,” she said. “You know I’m right. I know I’m right. Even THEY know I’m right,” she said. She defended her tweets and said people got it wrong. “Someone DM’d me asking why my sudden open dislike/hatred towards blacks. You’re getting all wrong if you think I hate black people. My conclusion is unbiased. It’s like deciding to amputate a limb from gangrene. It has to be done. The patient will feel better afterwards. Eradication of one toxic family is exactly what this world needs,” Hyun wrote. After her tweets spread, Twitter users fired back, accusing Hyun of being a racist and advocating to eradicate blacks. An online petition was started urging Korean and international entertainment companies to blacklist Hyun. Hyun posted an apology to the black community on her personal blog but said she doesn’t regret what she said. “You are threatening me with the fact that you know my address. You guys have also started to roar your engines every so often outside of my home. This is my official apology to the black community. I do not regret what I said, however, I now understand that there are some lines one cannot cross,” she said. “Please take this apology and do what you will with it, but hopefully, everyone will remember to stay calm, cool and collected and remember that violence is not the answer,” she said. The apology has since been deleted. On her blog, Hyun describes herself as a pop/R&B songwriter who “has written, recorded and helped produce over 50 songs and has collaborated with various producers and writes music for American and Asian artists.” She said she co-wrote the song “Spring Day (How Great Is Your Love),” a track in Girls Generation’s hit album “The Boys.” She also said she co-wrote a song for the debut album of Korean girl group Chocolat. “In 2011, the song ‘Watching Over Me’ (which was on my independently released album entitled ‘Jaley’ in 2003) was placed on the album of a top Asian girl group, Girls' Generation, under the title ‘Mistake.’ Also in 2011 I have placed a song I co-wrote with Jean T. Na and SooYoung from Girls' Generation entitled ‘Spring Day (How Great Is Your Love)’ on Girls' Generation's album ‘The Boys.’ Later that year, I co-wrote a song on the debut album of ChoColat called ‘One More Day (Same Thing To Her)’', according to an entry on her website.

..... really though... smh....

It makes me so sick that people claim to hate black culture so much, comment on how useless, vulgar and uncreative it is, yet these same people stay trying to make money off of the music, the fashion and what ever else they can get their hands on and market.

As for her, she needs to stop trying to blame these 'voices' in her head because I don't believe that even a schizophrenic would think it's okay to say the string of bullshit she blurted out.  Other than that she can kick rocks while flying a kite into oncoming traffic.

I know what you mean too.. I feel the world is made of all types people some with good things to say and some not. Its hard to focus your energy on someone who is not adding anything positive to the table. I suppose that's why I have become sort of desensitized towards topics of this matter.

yep.  kind of like when black kids are valedictorians or scoring high academically. 

Jeremy lin had made 138 he's first 5 starts coming off the bench , if he was black he would have gotten recogintion, because i believe that hasn't happened in the NBA in decades....he took the knicks losing team and made them win again .... black people do amazing things in the NBA all the time and get recognition, kobe, lebron, wade, bosh,rose, etc ... so  i think race has nothing to do with it....

wow.  she's an idiot. doesn't sound too different from what floyd said about pacqiuao.

the real irony is that she's making black influenced music. 

Wow, she's single-handedly perpetuated the myth that Koreans, on a general scale, are racist.  Good job!




For the Haters...! by ~MiracleRaverDJMelody on deviantART

What an angry Asian chick. But, will the label stick with her as society likes to apply it liberally to all Black women?  I doubt it. She is so full of venom and what gets me is that she tries to make her living copying Black culture (with singing R&B). This is why, on one hand, I like that other groups can appreciate the music and art that come out of Black American culture, but sometimes am protective of it. People want to take the items borne of our struggles and experience, yet disrespect us. Our art and culture are NOT separate from who we are- they are an extension of our lives and experience, past and present. And, all too often, the people outside of the Black community that make hip hop and R&B music wouldn't even date a Black person. I'm sorry, I have no love for it. EVERY single group has committed atrocities.History, even the present, is FILLED to the brim with instances of violent Asians, Whites, Blacks, Latinos, etc. Because human behavior transcends all of that. It's gotten old, this Black people are bad, the worse, BS. Reality tv, since its inception, has been filled with instances of White people, for example abusing drugs, being violent, etc. Yet, deliberate marketing ensures they are still promoted as the most desirable. I think the fact that BM and AW are secondary targets for dating is due to White men and their issues with penis: the desire to use it with Asian women and the obsession, since naked slaves stood on auction blocks, with the size of some Black men's genitalia. But, I digress.II know this article is old, but the sentiments this girl expressed are not only recent, but problematic for Black Americans. It's one reason people who post child porn or post racist posts get attacked, because it never just remains innocent ideology. Ideology almost always turns into action, usually to the detriment of the target population.
