New Delhi: ‘Remo’ fame, Tamil actor Sivakarthikeyan faced a backlash on social media for his racial comments toward Koreans. The actor made the comments at an event while talking about a comedy scene from his latest film ‘Don’. The discriminatory nature of his comments was called out on the internet.

While speaking at a cultural event in a school in Trichy, Sivakarthikeyan said, “Whenever I see Korean films, I feel like all the actors in them are the same. Sometimes it’s hard to tell the heroes from the heroines.” These comments on the looks of the Korean people, that too in front of students at a school, did not set a good example.

He made these comments while talking about a scene in which the actors are talking in gibberish, which is made to sound like the Korean language. The scene from ‘Don’ has Sivakarthikeyan and Soori trying to make the audience laugh. The people present at the event went berserk when the actor recalled lines from the scene.

Netizens shared the video from the event and criticised the Tamil star for such comments.

A Twitter user accepted that what Sivakarthikeyan said was wrong, but people body-shaming him are also not doing the right job.

‘Don’ is written and directed by Cibi Chakravarthi and stars Priyanka Arulmohan, S.J. Suryah, Soori, Samuthirakani and Radha Ravi along with Sivakarthikeyan. The actor will be seen in ‘Prince’, which will release on Diwali and also stars Sathyaraj and Maria Ryaboshapka.
