Fans of Seventeen's Vernon are furious at another supposed Carat for spreading heavily inappropriate posts online.
The controversial posts in question were recently uploaded to a Vernon fan gallery, showing a photo of Vernon's lower half with the caption, "He is the mixed blood prince." The phrase may seem harmless at first, but in Korean, the words used can easily take on a whole different direction.
The words used in the above phrase can be seen as:
혼혈= mixed blood and 왕자= prince, ultimately meaning "He is the mixed prince."
혼혈= mixed blood, 왕= king, 자지= male sex organ, which ends up being "Mixed blood's king sex organ."

Fans found the provocative posts seriously offensive, accusing the uploader of sexually harassing the idol star. In fact, a Vernon fan page called Vernon Union is currently gathering evidence to take legal actions against the uploader.
Netizens didn't seem to hide their shock and disgust toward the crude jokes, with comments like, "That is not a fan. This is crazy!", "Wow.. that is too much", "Please take legal actions so that this person gets penalized for good", and more.
