JYP Entertainment released an official statement through their official website, announcing their current legal actions to protect ITZY from malicious haters and sexual harassment.
As ITZY has grown to become one of the most popular girl groups in K-Pop, malicious haters have been leaving nasty comments, spreading false rumors, and sexually harassing the members.
JYP announced that they’ve already begun the legal fight against the malicious haters and asked fans to continue reporting with relative evidence.
Hello. This is JYPE.
We are currently taking strict actions against those who damage our artists’ image, reputation, and character, by slandering them, spreading malicious rumors, and sexual harassment.
We continually collected evidence through our company’s monitoring system, as well as the fans’ reports.
We have filed lawsuits against the malicious commenters with a specialized legal team, and we have finished submitting our statements.
We will continue to pursue strong civil and criminal measures without settlement to those who violate our artists’ rights.
We ask the fans to continue submitting the many reports, and we will do everything that we can to prevent not only our artists but also the fans from getting hurt.
