1. [+649, -17] Instead of the focus being put on his experience as a Black man in Korea, it should've been put on his life as a two-face here. If he truly believes that he lost his career simply because he's Black, then he never would've had a career in the first place. He was not canceled because he's Black but because he acted up. He put down Asians and said a misogynistic statement. 

2. [+566, -84] He's totally glossing over what he said that led to him getting hate and canceled. He's talking as if Koreans came out of no where with the hate. Does he think we're that easy? Does he really think Koreans unfollowed him for no reason? Please just go to Ghana and live off the money you've already made off of Korea.

3. [+310, -71] We may think we're progressive as individuals but we revert to conservative hive thinking when we get together in groups. We're extremely emotional and feel powerful in our attacks behind the anonymity of group thinking... I do, however, think we have the potential to grow into a better culture. It always starts with me doing better for change.

4. [+94, -14] Just go home ㅎㅎㅎ We're a country where it's extremely difficult to recover your career once you've made a name for yourself like this. 

5. [+54, -1] He used blackface to make it sound as if all Koreans are racist... then he left a comment of s*xual harassment on a married actress, which coudl also be interpreted as putting Asian men down. Isn't it common sense that you shouldn't put down the people of the country you're residing and making a living in? It's true that our country has its own cancel culture but we also don't have an obligation to put people like you on TV either.

6. [+41, -1] Why did he leave out the part where he told an actress "once you go black, you don't come back"?

7. [+38, -1] He's turning this into a race issue when he was the one commenting on an actress's Instagram "once you go black"... If a Korean had said such a thing, he wouldn't be able to hold his face in public.

8. [+34, -0] Okyere-ya, it's unfortunate that you don't seem to get it. You weren't canceled for the Uijungbu scandal. You know that, right? Remember when you called the whole thing a misunderstanding and then went straight to a BBC interview right after? How can you make this same mistake again? 

9. [+34, -1] Nah, he's wrong... He was canceled because he left a s*xual comment on a famous celebrity's SNS... This guy's funny...

10. [+19, -0] Nah... He still doesn't get people were mad. People didn't turn on him because of the blackface incident... that incident was left wholly open for misunderstandings to be worked out. It was what happened after that incident where people discovered that he was actually going around pulling slanted eyes in the past, things he said about KOrean women, etc that people started turning their backs on him. Coincidentally, right as Okyere was being kept off TV, Jonathan appeared as a replacement. If Okyere truly believes that Koreans pushed him out simply because he's Black, then why are the Jonathan siblings so liked by everyone? Why are they on TV and doing CF ads? It's just a changing of the times.

11. [+14, -0] Cancel culture exists in every culture... If you say something bad about the country you're working in, you would be canceled anywhere. There are plenty of celebrities who lose their careers overnight, Sam Okyere is not special...

12. [+6, -0] Cancel culture is extreme in Korea because we value character in people. Your character was exposed and you received the consequences for it. It looks like you haven't reflected at all in the past two years and have been busy cosplaying as the victim.
