Netizens are defending aespa‘s Giselle after her alleged old Wattpad account was reportedly leaked. Many demanded respect for the idol and her privacy.
Fans were surprised to see what is alleged evidence of Giselle’s former Wattpad account from 2013. It included different stories that were published over the course of a few months, with the account seemingly having become active in August of 2013, and then seeing its last update published in December of the same year. The account will not be shared here out of respect for Giselle.
Many fans humorously showed their support for this piece of information about Giselle’s pre-debut past…

…but since then many others have expressed their concern for her mental well-being in light of the leak. For one, she is likely having to put up with many comments about the stories she allegedly wrote, something that fans feel she shouldn’t be judged for given that she was 13 years old at the time.
leave giselle alone. like this isn’t normal behavior.

But fans are particularly concerned about the invasion of her privacy. It is still unclear whether the account that was leaked truly belongs to her or not, but either way, fans feel that her privacy has been violated.
"giselle’s digital footprint is HORRIBLE cause how did everyone find her—" because they INVADED her privacy. nothing else.

Giselle obviously don’t want things related to her in the past to get leaked like her tiktok account and videos, she was extremely uncomfortable about it. Girl is lurking here why spread the wattpad account? She wants privacy, is it hard to respect her?

As a matter of fact, some fans have called on SM Entertainment, Giselle’s managing label, to take legal measures to protect her privacy.
While it remains to be seen whether the account is confirmed as truly hers or not, fans will continue to support Giselle and her right to privacy.
