Netizens have become furious at one fan of SEVENTEEN‘s Vernon for posting a tweet with a sexually-harassing message about the idol.
Rookie boy group SEVENTEEN of Pledis Entertainment made their comeback in the beginning of the year with their first album LOVE&LETTER and title track, “Pretty.” After much success, the group released a repackaged version of the album which includes their new upbeat summer title track, “Very Nice.”
Although member Vernon has been compared to actor Leonardo DiCaprio in the past, SEVENTEEN fans are currently unhappy with the latest nickname given to the idol by a fan.
Netizens have shown their outrage at the “fan” through a mega-viral post on the Korean community site Pann. Titled, “SEVENTEEN Vernon fan is really crazy, no?,” the post recounts what the “fan” tweeted about Vernon.
The first picture, which shows a side profile of the idol’s waist area was tweeted with the caption, “Mixed king of d*cks.” The second photo, although not an obvious photo, includes the same caption.
A translation of the original Korean post on Pann is below:
Isn’t this freaking crazy. idols are people too this is too much….
