A group of Dallas' 106.1 KISS FM radio hosts have been taking heat from K-Pop fans after the February 22nd broadcast of 'The Kidd Kraddick Morning Show'. During the show the hosts were introducing new song 'Let's Shut Up & Dance' by Jason Derulo, (EXO's) Lay, and NCT 127. However, the hosts multiple errors while talking about the song, that many K-Pop fans considered disrespectful to the K-Pop artists. First, the song was introduced a Michael Jackson tribute by Derulo - but Lay and NCT 127 were not mentioned. Afterwards NCT 127 was mistaken as BTS and when the hosts quickly found out that they weren't they said 'So it was just some random group of Asian guys dancing?' 'Yeah, we just got excited for nothing.' When one host found out the name for NCT 127 they mis-said it as 'NC 127'. The hosts also mention watching the music video at the time -  a video where both Lay and NCT 127 can be seen. Naturally many K-Pop fans - especially fans of Lay and NCT 127 - were offended by this and contacted the radio station to notify them of their errors. The station has yet to make an official statement on the matter. You can listen to the radio segment below.
