However, fans were quick to notice something wrong with the group’s red carpet appearance.

In addition to photos being taken by paparazzi, many media outlets also filmed the red carpet. In one clip from a media source, paparazzi can be heard sarcastically talking about Stray Kids, with one remarking that they were like “robots.”

Can anybody spread this?? Are paparazzi always this rude…literally after this he said I bet they’re gonna start performing hello?? #StrayKids_MetGala #StrayKids #MetGala

Paparazzi 1: Never seen so many unemotional faces in my life.
Paparazzi 2: They’re like robots.
Paparazzi 1: Yeah, right.
Paparazzi 1: Now let’s do it with feeling!

When Stray Kids did their outfit reveal, the group of paparazzi can be hear negatively exclaiming.

In another video taken right in front of Stray Kids, the crowd of paparazzi can be heard giving them directions, with one yelling “everyone jump,” before another says “how do you say right in Korean.” (0:37 in the below clip)

The comments the paparazzi are making?? That’s DISPERPECTFUL!
CONGRATS STRAY KIDS!!! #MetGala2024 #StrayKids_MetGala #StrayKids

Both of these encounters perpetuate stereotypes about K-Pop groups, including that idols are cold and emotionless, while also showing an ignorant assumption that they do not understand English.

Fans were left disgusted by the rude and “racist” comments made during such a big moment in Stray Kids’ career.

the fact that a huge (and seemingly respectable) event like the met gala still doesn’t invest in hiring actual professional photographers and instead lets nasty racist paparazzi harass the guests is despicable and revolting. and no one around them said anything either

paparazzi being very loudly racist towards 5kz at the met and not facing any backlash from the people around them is fucking crazy

Despite this happening, Stray Kids are still making history regardless and look great while doing so!
