On August 14, the YG Family head revealed the label has filed lawsuits against malicious posts about label artists. He posted to Instagram, "YG is filing lawsuits against malicious comments. YGE filed complaints against 12 postings that spread malicious rumors, defamation, and pornography related to label artists along with 57 postings that were offensive to artists."
The post continued, "It's a huge legal move that's rare in the entertainment industry. It's a stern message that YGE will no longer remain passive about those who create and spread malicious and unfounded rumors. By writing postings that aren't true or making offensive sexual statements and obscene content, they've caused great damage to the artists by insulting them and defaming their character."
Yang Hyun Suk also added the hashtags, "Long awaited wishes of fans, complaint against persons who wrote malicious and hate comments filed, will take strong and firm action."
