His agency Brand New Music released a short statement to address the controversy.
“It is not a big problem.”

didt****: What? How could they? What about San-E’s attitude when he was performing “Sour Grapes?”
h880****: Hip-hop fans just shut up.
nouv****: Are they in their right mind? This is not something they (Brand New Music) should be expressing their opinion on. I thought I misread the article.”
