Park Na Rae Blasted for her Explicit Jokes
Back in March, the "A Good Day To Go To Market" host was in hot waters after facing a ton of backlash for saying inappropriate jokes and actions on "Studio Waffle's" Youtube show "Hey Nare."
The web reality show was hosted by Park Na Rae and Youtube star Kang Hye Jin, who is also a host of a children's channel.
During its second episode, the duo was tasked to review a male doll. Known for her tongue-in-cheek remark, the 35-year-old comedian dropped a series of adult jokes and said, "Do I need to spread my legs to sit?"
However, her explicit comments did not stop there and even made sexual gestures that made the viewers uncomfortable.
It appears that the popular comedienne goes over the line by touching the doll's private parts and mentioned, "Oh, I thought this doll had that part too."
Shortly after, the Baeksang Arts winner went viral as netizens castigate her behavior which the viewer finds unsuitable.This led her to address the situation and apologize for her actions.
Over Park Na Rae's Instagram account, she posted a handwritten apology acknowledging her inappropriate behavior and regrets "making people uncomfortable"
"It was my responsibility to be thorough with the appearance, performance, and props on the show, but I let so many people down with my unprofessional action," she mentioned, adding that she will be more careful and "put more thoughts into every word and action."
In addition, Park Na Rae also announced to leave the web show.
