White American woman claims to invent dalgona coffee, gets dragged



Katie angel, founder of company “whipped drinks”, has been on the center of controversy after selling whipped coffee kits for $49 while claiming the company created the drink.

The drink became viral last year on TikTok because of South Korean actor Jung Il-woo.

It went viral after Jung appeared on a South Korean TV show and ordered the concoction in Macau, made by whipping coffee, sugar, and hot water 400 times.

Social media users quickly called out the company, making it backtrack due to backlash, promising it was never their intention to take from Asian and Pacific Island communities.
