GOT7‘s Jackson is receiving a whole lot of love after he shut down racist trolls during a recent livestream.
On May 23, Jackson, Youngjae, and Jinyoung went live to interact with fans before their M! Countdown comeback stage. While the three were having a lot of fun talking to fans, things took a surprising turn when trolls entered the chat.
As the three of them continued to read comments left by fans, Jackson’s smile suddenly disappeared as he read one racist message left by a hater targeted at him.
It’s so funny when Jackson speaks in Korean. He still sounds Ching.
After fully reading the remark, Jackson then proceeded to take down the trolls in the best way possible.
You know what? No negative comments, okay? Let’s stay positive. Let’s show a lot of love. And let’s love more than hate. Alright?
Shortly after the incident, Jackson started trending at no. 1 on Weibo’s hot search with lots of people leaving positive comments for Jackson.

Additionally, Jackson has been receiving a whole lot of love and support for the way he took down the haters and spread the message about love!
I read about the blast on Jackson wang and all I thought damn that’s 💩. But at the end I was like Mad Respect to Jackson . Honestly, you handled that like a boss, you took the high road and left the troll in awe. So claps for you Jackson like you say“ stay hungry”. #Got7
