Why Super Junior's Leeteuk Hates His Google Profile Photo

July 21, 2015 at 4:00 pm EDT

Leeteuk is on a mission to change his Google search profile photo.

The Super Junior star took to his Twitter account to voice his frustrations after seeing that an insensitive picture of him is used as his main profile shot on Google Korea's search results.

The distasteful snap is a paparazzi taken shot from the funeral of the 32-year-old singer's grandparents and father in January 2014.

Alongside a screenshot of the offending page, he tweeted that has tried to have the photos removed due to the insensitive nature but has had little luck in seeing any results.

In a second tweet, he added, "I want to know, did I do something wrong? What were [Google's] thoughts when they used a photo like this as profile photo on a portal site? Have I done something wrong to you?"

Fans were quick to side with the "Devil" singer and have been writing to Google in their droves. (The photo does not display on the US or European search results of Google).
