On Sunday, an American K-pop rapper took to Twitter to express his anger towards a certain international Korean entertainment news site.

Jay Park called out the English-language Korean entertainment outlet Koreaboo on Sunday following the site's use of his image in related to a Korean celebrity drug scandal. Park accused Koreaboo of using his and Dok2's pictures relating to the issue in order to garner clicks.

"So ya'll just gon[na] use me and Dok2's pic like that when you know it ain't us?" Jay tweeted, sharing a screenshot of Koreaboo's post. "Lol desperate for clicks, huh?"

The screenshot Jay Park shared was from Koreaboo's official Facebook page and featured on image of both Park and rapper Dok2, both of whom are CEOs. The article was originally titled "[Breaking] Korea's Latest Celebrity Drug Scandal Features A 'CEO/Rapper.'"

Jay Park is the founder of AOMG while Dok2 is the co-CEO of Illionaire Records.

Park continued to call out Koreaboo with further tweets where he questioned the site's credibility.

"Trying to be a reliable news source yet they post our pics implying that it's us when it aint," he said. "Get yo facts straight before you indirectly include us in some bullshit we ain't involved in. Aight now back to being successful."

According to Koreaboo's website, it is "an English-language web portal for viral Korean content" that was founded in 2010.

Later on Sunday, Jay Park asked supporters not to "feed into the negativity" and watch his latest music video, for the song "WW X Want It."

Park released his celebrity feature-filled studio album, "Worldwide," earlier this month.
