Jackson uploaded the photo to Instagram on March 16th, “Oh my god…Oh my…#jacksonwang #jyp #got7 #igot7.” 

Many fans and followers reacted negatively to the post, expressing their disappointment at his choice to repost the fan-edited photo on his Instagram. Taking offense to the photo, many commented on his Instagram calling the post racist and insensitive.

After seeing the comments, Jackson personally made several apologies to fans, writing in another post [Squirtle post], “I’m really really sorry if I offended anybody. I wasn’t even thinking about about what you guys were talking about until I saw the comments. I am truly sorry about this misunderstanding. Love you guys so much and thank you so much for letting me know.” 

The photo has since been deleted.

He continued to apologize before logging off, “Good night!!! ❤ love you all!!! And sorry for the misunderstanding. Love. Kiss kiss ;) BAM!”
