Big Bang's Seungri ultimately deleted the post regarding his friend Lee Ah Yun.

Seungri received backlash from netizens after sharing a supportive post, asking fans to vote for his close friend Lee Ah Yun for the '2018 Miss Maxim Contest.' The idol star promised an hour of Instagram live if his friend wins first place. Many netizens were displeased with the "deal" Seungri offered, claiming he is "taking advantage of fans by bribing with his Instagram live."

What did they think would happen she'd be come insanely popular just because Seungri as a friend showed his support to a friend? Please if that could happen all Seungri's friends would be big names by now. There is nothing wrong with friends supporting friends.

Repeat after me: "I don't have any right to control idol's personal life"

Right or wrong? It's his problem, he's a grown ass man, he'll deal with the consequences.

Don't like his post? Mute it or unfollow him.

But demanding someone to behave how you want it and acting like his social media's sommelier definitely AIN'T IT.

Stop micromanaging idols and go take care of your own life ffs.

This was a non-issue that people who live to hate decided to latch on to. "fan manipulation"? If fans wanted to they would have supported her for the simple fact that she is his friend, whether there was a live or not. And if VIPs don't feel like voting, they won't even if he promises a live. We're not teenagers, we don't do anything we don't want to ... And VIPs hardly vote for anything anyway because we're adults with busy lives.

I see this as NOT a 'big deal' mistake by SEUNGRI. He wanted to help his female Model friend.

Unfortunately, he went about it in a manner that was a bit 'Fan Manipulative' in strategy.

And SEUNGRI sees that now, and is 'backing off' ; which is a GOOD decision.

You let your TROLLS extract their 'kg of flesh' over mostly nothing, if you will.
