JYP Entertainment girl group NMIXX has sparked controversy for a vulgar word that appears in their new “Young, Dumb, Stupid” music video
The track is a pre-release for their upcoming single album, “expérgo.” In the music video, leader Haewon can be seen wearing a graphic T-shirt with an acrostic that spells out the word “C*NT,” a slang term referring to female genitalia. 

A tweet from an NMIXX photos fan account pointing out Haewon’s shirt garnered over 41,000 likes.

Printed on the shirt was “C – harisma, U – niqueness, N – erve, T – alent,” an acrostic saying used by drag queen RuPaul on his Emmy-winning reality TV show, “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” It didn’t take long for JYP Entertainment to edit the music video, removing the “N – erve, T – alent” part of the phrase. 
NMIXX’s “expérgo” will be released on March 20, led by the title track “Love Me Like This.”
