It was previously reported that netizens around the world were furious by Mnet, because the sound of the call to prayer was remixed in their show. As a result #Mnetapologize echoes on social media.

The remixed call to prayer became part of the intro to the event titled Street Woman Fighter. This is a survival show featuring 8 female dance crews who compete against each other to be number one.

Although the duration is only a few seconds, netizens immediately know that the sound used is the call to prayer. To strengthen this, there are netizens who make comparison videos with the original call to prayer.

Netizens also considered Mnet to be disrespectful and insensitive to Islam and the Muslim community around the world by abusing the call to prayer. Therefore, the netizen asked the South Korean TV station to apologize.
