Brand New has opened up about San E’s recent outburst at the “Brand New Year 2018” Concert.
On November 4, Brand New Music released an official statement addressing the recent outburst of rapper San E at the “Brand New Year 2018” concert.
Two days prior, San E made an appearance at the company-wide concert along with his label-mates. However, some audience greeted him with slogans that had offensive remarks towards the rappers, attacking him for his latest two tracks, “Feminist” and “6.9 cm.”
In response, the rapper started firing back. He called out on the members of radical feminist groups Womad and Megalia and lashed out at his critics. After leaving the stage, the audience demanded that the rapper apologizes. However, San E did not appear for the last performance. Instead, Rhymer, the CEO of Brand new, came out and apologized on his behalf.
The following is the official statement from Brand New Music:
Hello, this is Brand New Music.
Our company feels very responsible for all controversies that occurred at the recent “Brand New Year 2018” concert. At this time, we would like to offer our sincere gratitude to the audience and artists, who may have felt uncomfortable regarding the latest event.
We will be more careful in the future to ensure that nothing like this will ever happen again.
