I think this is superb news. The PR team at Edam Entertainment are looking after their investment and the best interest of their star. They have looked at the private chat forum but really it should become a culture across all entertainment companies to regulate this behaviour on all platforms even Twitter. People need to be held accountable. Great news.

Good to see that at least there are some agency who really care about their Artist...

But what makes me sad that there are some companies who didn't care about this type of mallicious cyber bulling which cost sucide of Artists but still they don't care at all... They need to set the companies who actually care for their artist as ideal to take care about their Artist.
