'Produce 101' has yet another controversy.

News of the lower-ranking trainees being discriminated against, even for food and the bathroom, had enraged and horrified viewers. Mnet only said that there was "healthy competition" happening, but there has nothing changed even after the news.

In fact, the 'F' class trainees were interrogated afterward, with the staff demanding to know who had leaked the situation outward. They were also asked who had dared to eat their rice with the sauce from the fried pork (since they were supposed to eat just rice). They were then told not to leak information to outsiders.

However, CJ E&M said, "As each trainee has a different label, we told them to communicate with the outside only after confirming facts so we could minimize misunderstanding. The trainees and the staff are all working hard, so we told to make sure all the efforts were not wasted due to wrong communications and misunderstandings."

A label said, "We can't understand what they mean by confirming facts, when these are things that the trainees saw, felt, and experienced themselves. None of the trainees can complain to the staff because then they will be cast out."

    I despise all of these Korean competition shows because they are rigged from the start.

    seriously this is the statement they release to discrimination going on? "oh yea don't report that shit or else you will get bullied even more" THEN FIX IT YA RETARD PRODUCERS. What kind of a dumb show is this...the program staff can't even handle their own members, what's the point in making a show under these conditions? Healthy competition my ass...I wouldn't be surprised at all if there was actual physical assault involved.

    What the hell? No one should be judge by ranks. They should all be treated as the same or at least treated well and taking care of the trainees. They aren't toys for mnet to play with, they are human being.

    This show is flopping so hard.. It might as well just get cancelled... What's the whole point anyway? Just being in a temporary group is not worth all this suffering..

    1) do you think the same thing was done to the females last year (only that nobody leaked info about it)? Horrible if true.

    2) MNET are just doing this to create more buzz in media about this show so that it will get more viewers. They know that the male version of the show isnt going to get anywhere near as populas the female version last year
