Is A.KOR’s Cover of Little Mix’s ‘Word Up’ a Diss Track?

K pop girl group A.KOR is under fire again for their cover of British girl group Little Mix’s ‘Word Up’. Previously, A.KOR member Kemy received a lot of criticism after she released a diss track at 2NE1 member Park Bom.
The circumstantial incident was sparked by a netizen who made a video scrutinizing their cover. The netizen took a snippet from A.KOR's recent interview in which they are asked whether A.KOR or Little Mix is better. A.KOR said, "A.KOR is a bit better." The netizen moves onto noticing that the last few seconds of the cover show the girls doing what may look like peace signs, but the two finger salute with the palm facing inward is actually an obscene gesture in England saying, "F**k off" (similar to the middle finger in America).
