The internet shopping mall 'Auction' recently recruited the girls to be the face of the site, but after the girls released their CF, the site has been experiencing a mass exodus of users.
The girls, after using various phrases used on the controversial site, and after their CEO pretty much admitted he was a registered member, have been called 'Ilbe-yon-pop'. After Crayon Pop released their CF, a torrent of complaints flooded the customer service board. The term 'Leaving Auction' started taking the top spots for search terms on portals, and a movement to stop using the site started up.
The movement spread over to Twitter, with users commenting, "As soon as I heard, I left. I don't want to use my money for a company who decides to use idols who are controversial because of Ilbe", and "I was watching cable TV and felt disappointed because Auction CFs with Crayon Pop kept coming up. They're noisy people with no tact... I'm leaving Auction".
Auction stated, "The mail that the customer center sent is not Auction's official stance. We picked them purely out of a marketing point of view because they became a hot issue this summer, and their dance and performance were creative. We will be taking into account the customers' various opinions on this matter."
