Netizens defend SHINee's Taemin for the recent Onew-related comments made at Tokyo Dome concert

Recently, SHINee's Taemin received backlash from some netizens for the comment he made at their 'SHINee World 2017 ~Five~ Special Edition' in Japan's Tokyo Dome.

The criticisms were that he implicitly mentioned his fellow member Onew and that the group will step on the stage again as a full five members group in the future despite the controversy surrounding Onew occurred only recently. However, since the backlash occurred, netizens have come out to defend Taemin.

A post was uploaded by a user on an online community portal that revealed the detailed words said by Taemin. At the concert, Taemin gave a final speech as they were wrapping up and said, "It's such an honor to be on a stage in this dome. To be able to continuously perform at places like this is due to all the support and love from all of you fans, we always appreciate it and thank you. Also, I think this was possible because of all the staff amongst everyone that worked very hard to make this happen, thank you! (Minho asks Taemin, 'Is that it?' as he motions toward the prompter) Oh! And we will come back as a five...five members, so see you then."

After this revelation, netizens and fans alike have come out to defend Taemin as the last statement made by him was simply a scripted line on a prompter that he was pushed to say. 

Some of the comments by netizens can be read as the following, "SM must be crazy, why would you make Taemin say that?", "He finished what he had to say but they made him say something unnecessary", "Lol he even forgot his lines midway, it was clearly scripted. Were people really criticizing him and were disappointed at him because of this? lol", and much more.
