Media outlet claims 'Labiotte' would never use Baekho as a main model because of his controversy

NU'EST W fans are furious at 'Labiotte'.

The cosmetics brand recently employed all four members as the face of their brand. However, back on December 11, a media outlet called Women News reported on Baekho's controversy and questioned whether it was appropriate for someone currently under investigations for sexual assault to be the model of a brand largely aimed toward women.

When contacted by Women News, 'Labiotte' reportedly said, "We had JR and Ren as our models. Recently when we renewed the contract, we signed with all the members. The contract is with JR and Ren as the mains, so we did not think there would be too much of an issue. The label also told us there is nothing to worry about the controversy, so we signed the contract. There will be photos with all four members since we have signed with the entire group. However, we will never use Baekho as our main."

The wording infuriated NU'EST W fans, who called 'Labiotte' in protest. However, when contacted, 'Labiotte' apparently told fans that they had never had such an interview. 

Translation: "I was angry so I called their headquarters, and they said they never had an interview. But then who did? But that's what they told me, so I told them to either fire the person who interviewed, or to sue the article that said they made that statement, and to correct it. Now I'm going to go text them."

What do you think about the article and the statement?
