Can someone explain why celebrities have to clarify their whereabouts…? Are idols not allowed to independently attend these events?

Whether there was a celebrity or not, it's not their fault that this tragedy occurred. It was the people from the top pushing down just for laughs and it ended up like this. A few years ago, there was double the crowd of 200,000 in Itaewon and there was not one single casualty and everyone went home happy.
