Fans question DC Inside post calling for Irene to leave Red Velvet

AKP STAFF

Fans are questioning a DC Inside post calling for Irene to leave Red Velvet.

Internet community DC Inside features galleries dedicated to celebrities, and a user of the Red Velvet gallery made a post calling for the withdrawal of Irene from the SM Entertainment girl group. The post stated, "I strongly urge her to leave Red Velvet as soon as possible, judging that it's extremely inappropriate for Irene to continue her group activities in the future."

The post then made its way through other internet communities, but many fans questioned whether the netizen behind the post gathered the opinions of any other fans or users of DC Inside. One fan asked whether the post was written by a real fan of Red Velvet as any user can post anonymously on the community.

Fans also noted the official Red Velvet fan club designated by SM Entertainment, ReVeluv, has supported Irene. ReVeluv posted a message on the fan club community, stating, "I think it's time for us to protect and support our artist."

As previously reported, editor Kang Kook Hwa released a first-hand account of how she was mistreated by a celebrity, and many netizens speculated the person in question was Red Velvet member Irene because of the editor's hashtags "Monster" and "Psycho". Irene then personally admitted she was the idol in the post and apologized. Since then, there have been both good and bad reports of experiences with the Red Velvet member.

Pointless. As far as I know, none of her fansites have closed down, and a Chinese one is even threatening to sue everyone lol. The general public has in the recent years become very sensitive to the idea of power harassment, so they are the ones upset by this, but on the other hand RV fans are aggressively standing by her, and for an idol that's ultimately what matters the most. Irene is simply too big to fail. It remains to be seen if her ability to secure CFs will be affected, but the bulk of this will blow over after a while. She'll get negative comments under every RV article for the rest of her career, but beyond that I don't think the fans have any reason to worry about her quitting.
