> Korean YouTuber Hamzy has apologised to her Chinese fans after being criticised for liking a comment claiming China was appropriating kimchi as its own.
China Press reported that Hamzy, who is known for her mukbang (binge-eating videos), had said sorry for her “inappropriate behaviour” following an outrage among Chinese Internet users who said she had insulted China.
“I respect Chinese culture and its cuisine and I hope everyone can feel it, ” she said in a video, followed by a deep bow.
Despite her apology, Shanghai-based company Suxian Advertising, which runs Hamzy’s video accounts and online shop in China, was
quoted as saying it planned to terminate its contract with her, shut down her online shop on e-commerce portal Taobao and delete her videos.
Hamzy, who has more than 5.29 million subscribers on her YouTube channel and reportedly earns US$200,000 (RM810,000) each month, stands to lose her earnings from the Chinese market following the blunder.
Kimchi, which is a fermented cabbage dish, became a hot issue recently between China and South Korea, with Internet users from each country claiming the dish to be their own.
