Twice's Chaeyoung apologizes for 'not thoroughly reviewing' shirt with swastika imagery
Twice's Chaeyoung is under fire for wearing a t-shirt with Nazi imagery.
The K-pop girl group member posted a picture on Instagram recently sporting a T-shirt featuring Sex Pistols musician Sid Vicious wearing a swastika.
Chaeyoung has since removed the post and shared an apology on Instagram Tuesday.
“Hello, this is Chaeyoung from TWICE. I sincerely apologize regarding the Instagram post. I didn’t correctly recognize the meaning of the tilted swastika in the t-shirt I wore,” she wrote.
The 23-year-old added, “I deeply apologize for not thoroughly reviewing it, causing concern. I will pay absolute attention in the future to prevent any situation similar from happening again. Sincerely apologize again.”

Chaeyoung's latest controversy comes days after she was accused of wearing a shirt with QAnon imagery during Twice's performance on MBC's "Show! Music Core" on Saturday.
The outfit consisted of a cropped shirt with the letter "Q" filled in with an American flag. The top half of the shirt was cut out, but the bottom had the phrase "We go all" visible.
QAnon, a Donald Trump-supported political conspiracy theorist group, has used the phrase "Where we go one, we go all," from Jeff Bridges' 1996 book "White Squall," according to CBS News, BBC and PBS.
Chaeyoung did not address her performance outfit in her apology on Instagram Tuesday.
