YG reports 4 cases of hate comments have been forwarded to prosecutors


YG Entertainment reported that four cases of hate comments have been forwarded to prosecutors.

Last year, the label had announced that they would be taking strong legal action against those leaving hate comments and spreading false information. They have enlisted the help of both fans as well as their legal team to sue such netizens. YG Entertainment revealed that most of the people were people in their 20-30s, and were not underage. There are those who had admitted they left hate comments, but denied them during the investigation.

Currently, there are 4 additional cases to be either forwarded to prosecution or already forwarded.

Great to hear that, those people need to learn lessons of what they did. I hope SM will do the same.

what these companies need to understand is that idols will always face hate, that's how fame works and i'm not saying that it is in anyway right but what YG needs to actually do is take care of his fucking idols instead of suing trolls on the internet and act like an adult for once

Here's where the terminology is the problem. He's not suing people who call the artists ugly or say they can't sing. He's going after the ones that make hurtful claims about the artists and their families. People who put stuff on the internet that could potentially damage idols or their families reputations/business/relationships.

i do agree with you on that one, for example threats and harrasment needs to be taken seriously

Yes, i am very glad to hear that . I prefer the fan and another people give power to the artist more than comment . The artist already work hard . Why they should to get the bad emotion from the people who don’t care another mind. I know the world is worse, but we can help to positive thing , right ?

This is rediculous. These companies need to stop focusing on internet. You have artists that haven’t released music in years. They should be the focus. Hate comments will all always be present, they’ll never go away. The young life’s of these idols and artists are limited where they can learn and experiment and create music

I think 'hate comments' needs to be replaced with 'damaging and threatening comments'. I think it would create better understanding of what type of comment is unacceptable. And might even prevent haters from crossing the line from being a jerk to potentially committing a crime.

This is just such a slippery slope. How do you define hate speech and how much punishment can people receive for speech and thoughts?

Everytime YG releases a statement about suing people for the shit they've said, my day becomes better. Hopefully it's about someone who posted about Hanbin and Jennie. There were so many disgusting things being said about them, It needs to stop.

delusional haters getting punished, thats nice.

hope they start doing that with the comments here too, so we can finally get rid of some of the most disgusting haters the internet has ever seen, like the racist ryenlux, aka stopudelulu, holdthisLnoobs, kpoptrashtalker etc...who still wishes korean artists bad things to happen, even makes fun of the one who died like he did with jonghyun...
