15& Baek Yerin isn’t playing and she stated that she will take legal action on those who spread fake rumours and make malicious comments.
On Instagram, Yerin uploaded a post (4th May)
In the post it says:
“I can’t sue those that are bullying me via Instagram at this moment, but I think it will be possible pretty soon since this is happening to many people. I also think I will be able to take care of malicious comments and rumours that are spreading about me on other community sites. There is no need for me to explain every [rumour]. It will make me have a pessimistic view on everything if I do. Thank you to those worrying about me.”
JYP Entertainment also made a statement on the issue
“We will act firmly against those who defame and attack her character and will continue to protect the artist under the law. In order to protect her well, we are monitoring the web and looking over submissions from fans.Submissions sent by fans recently have been a big help towards the artist’s protection,” and asked for more submissions of any malicious comments or rumours about the artist.
