Incident Details Shared on Social Media

An account shared on social media alleges that while LE SSERAFIM members were eating fried sweet potato balls during the show, Wayne Huang commented, “I want to insert into them down there…(pause) the fried sweet potato balls.” This remark has been criticized for its sexual implications.

Co-Host Lulu Huang’s Intervention

Fellow host Lulu Huang Lu Zi Yin reportedly intervened during the incident, highlighting the inappropriateness of Wayne Huang’s comment. “Hey Wayne, what you said doesn’t sound right.” she said.

Video Evidence and Netizen Backlash

A video capturing the incident shows Wayne Huang making the controversial statement, followed by immediate reactions from other hosts. Netizens have expressed disgust and outrage, flooding Wayne Huang’s social media with demands for an apology to LE SSERAFIM.

Fans commented:

      • “A person like this can be a host?……Good work, 2024 Superstar Red & White Entertainment Awards, picking a host that uses sexual jokes by rigging the selection process”
      • “‘I like you’ is too fluffy, ‘I love you’ is too heavy, ‘I want to insert into them down there’ is just right, by show host Wayne Huang”
      • “No need to sleep tonight, prepare your apology statement”
      • “Hey don’t you know there is a minor in the group? How disgusting”

      Fans of LE SSERAFIM are right to be angry as such behaviour should not be tolerated no matter the situation much less an Awards show.
