Stray Kids' Hyunjin to halt all promotions following bullying controversy

AKP STAFF

Stray Kids' Hyunjin is set to halt all promotions following his bullying controversy.

On February 27, JYP Entertainment announced Hyunjin will be taking an indefinite hiatus. The label stated:

"Hello, this is JYP Entertainment.

We'd like to inform you about Stray Kids Hyunjin's activities. We've already contacted all of the parties involved with Hyunjin's schedule, and we've been coordinating ways to cancel the activities while making sure to prevent as much damage as possible to the other party.

This process took time, so our announcement about Hyunjin's future activities was delayed. Hyunjin will be halting all entertainment activities to self-reflect on his actions.

He sincerely regrets he hurt many people with his inappropriate words during his middle school years. He would like to sincerely apologize to those who were hurt and will do his best to help them heal from their wounds.

We'd like to sincerely apologize for causing worry to the fans."



As previously reported, Hyunjin was accused of being a bully during his school days, and he apologized in a handwritten letter and later personally met with them.

ok the jype statement here is absolute bs, like they're acting like he literally bullied when he got into a verbal argument so the other classmate is at fault too? but the actual hiatus if i had to guess is probably from mental health. i reallyyyyyyy hope he's doing okay right now because we know how he gets when these things come up, true or not.

they will even end the guy's career, practicing exactly what they say they are against: doing cyberbullying! This is grotesque! He was wrong, he has already apologized and the horrendous people are even more cruel than him. God take care of him and give him serenity.
