Former Stray Kids member Woojin receives criticism for using accuser's original tweets in a teaser

AKP STAFF

On June 29, former Stray Kids member Woojin's entertainment company uploaded a teaser image alluding to a YouTube release.

As soon as 10x Entertainment uploaded the teaser image, he received some backlash from the online community as he used the contents from the tweets from his accuser.

In fact, Woojin used the words from the accuser's tweet, in which he was previously accused of sexually assaulting a woman. The teaser was for an upcoming documentary created by the agency in regards to the recent sexual harassment controversy that their artist was involved in.

However, many netizens replied to the tweet expressing how uncomfortable they felt with the teaser image. Many felt as if Woojin was trying to make a profit using the alleged victim's tweet rather than to solve the issue properly.

CLARIFICATION: he got backlash bc people thought he was using the teaser for his solo debut, not for a documentary about the allegations.

It makes complete sense to use that image for the documentary teaser, it is literally what the documentary is about.

hmmm if he was indeed wrongly accused and this is a documentary on that issue, what’s wrong with using that tweet as a poster? Just curious since from what I know, that accusation was never really proven.
