1. [+418, -53] What did CL do so wrong that she gets all this hate for? I don’t get it at all so can someone explain it to me? Just because she’s not pretty? Or because she’s under druggie YG? Why do you support other celebrities who’ve done crimes but she still gets hate? Whenever I ask this, people say choding things like, “You’d hate it if someone told you that you looked like CL”. Well I’m a man and not a CL fan and I’m honestly confused as to why she gets all this hate all the time.
2. [+366, -46] She seemed like she had a great personality on ‘Mix Nine’. She has a tough image but her personality is far from it.
3. [+285, -38] I’m not a fan nor do I particularly like her but there are people who look tough on the outside but are rather soft hearted on the inside!!
4. [+18, -2] I honestly feel bad for her. The reason people hate her is that she tries to act sexy when she’s ugly which is a ridiculous reason to begin with.
5. [+15, -3] She has a great personality, don’t know why people kick up such a fuss about her ㅡㅡ
6. [+14, -4] She seems to be soft hearted to the bone… she likes cutesy things and all. I think she suffered a lot having to play the leader role between older unnis and a dongsaeng 4 years younger than her. It’s ridiculous how she gets lumped in with the hate surrounding her environment and for being ugly. She’s a confident, amazing woman, who hasn’t committed a crime. Absolutely no reason for her to be getting hate at all.
7. [+13, -3] Her styling is always tough looking but she’s not tough at all..
8. [+12, -4] People keep saying it’s the hypocrisy of women that’s responsible for the hate she gets but CL never got hate in the beginning of her debut. It was only until 2NE1’s ‘I Don’t Care’ beat SNSD’s ‘Genie’ that she started getting all this hate against her looks and suddenly all of her fans started getting treated like they were ugly girls trying to compensate for their looks by bringing down prettier stars. That killed half the 2NE1 fandom at the time because whenever fans tried to retort hate against CL, the haters would just reply back, “Yeah well you look like CL~”. Anyone who was in the 2NE1 fandom at the time will know that SNSD”s fandom lit the fire when it came to hate against her and then everyone else who thought she was ugly jumped on board.
9. [+12, -2] You have to admit that to be successful in a country like Korea with her looks, it takes a lot of effort and determination. She achieved that and I know she’s destined for great things just because of that. She’s a hard worker, she even speaks three languages.
10. [+9, -3] I like her, has a great personality too… don’t know why she gets hate when she’s never committed a crime.
11. [+9, -3] I’ve been watching her since the ‘2NE1 TV’ days and she may seem tough having to lead older unnis all the time but she’s always been an innocent, sweet personality!! CL fighting
12. [+8, -1] I’ve noticed that people who look tough on the outside are almost usually softies on the inside
