How old is he? How long ago was this? Look, being a kid is not an excuse for bullying. But being older IS a reason for having matured. I was bullied for 4 years and I graduated hs in 2013. I still and always will HATE those people. What they did to me is unforgivable. HOWEVER, I have no idea what they are like today. What they're doing now. Or how they've become better. Whether I dislike them for then, is not a reason for me to ruin their lives, now. That's just how I feel. I think it's such a pity that companies can't stand behind their artist moreover that netizens can't see that people are regretful and simply forgive. I've said for a while, especially as a minority "I'd rather meet someone who was racist 20 years ago than meet someone who is racist today". Why? Because what matters is how you will repent and ensure never to go back to your bad ways. I'm not excusing his bullying but damn, there's no forgiveness EVER? We'll just throw people away like that?

that was quick plus its a good decision to not deny it right away i really hope he apologizes to the victim personally instead of apologizing to the fans and the general public
