MONSTA X The Latest Victim of Disrespectful Show Hosts

Australian media is again under scrutiny as another show host has made offensive and insensitive remarks towards K-Pop idols - this time the victims being MONSTA X. A few days ago on the Australian radio 'Trending Twenty' host Angus O'Loughlin said to say this when introducing MONSTA X's new song,  'WHO DO U LOVE?' ft. French Montana:

Talking about MONSTA X, "If I was a voice mentor I wouldn't turn my chair. Let me tell you a bit about them though. There's seven of them, just like BTS. They were formed on a reality television show in 2015 and this song features French Montana - who I can guarantee you, had no idea who MONSTER X were and probably still has no idea and I would presume he just took the paycheck for his 29 second verse. Leterally, it's 29 seconds. MONSTER X featuring French Montana, the song is 'WHO DO U LOVE'?".

As can be imagined, many MONSTA X and general K-Pop fans are angry with the host's unprofessionalism and are demanding an apology from the host and radio station. How do you feel about this situation?
