IZ*ONE Minjoo's label to take legal action against malicious commenters

USER CONTENT

IZ*ONE Minjoo's label, Urban Works, will be taking legal action against malicious commenters.

The group recently made their comeback after a hiatus following voter fraud allegations for all seasons of the 'Produce' series. Although the group is beginning a successful promotion cycle for their latest release, they are still experiencing an outpour of hate, including accusations that their album is doing well due to chart manipulation. 

Urban Works has since announced that they would be suing commenters due to mental distress given to Minjoo and her family. Minjoo has also been on the receiving end of sexually harassing comments as well.

I thought I was experiencing Deja Vu because I swore I already saw something about this last night. Turns out you guys are just bad at checking when the news was announced and if anyone else had already posted about it.

I mean, I guess its not exactly the same since you used a different photo of her and changed the spelling of her name (though I believe she officially goes by "Minju" )
