Blackpink’s agency addressed sexual harassment and personal attacks and threatens harsh legal action: Read here
Blackpink’s management company YG Entertainment has made a similar statement in response to the rumours that V and Jennie are involved days after Big Hit did. The agency stated that they are looking into the source of the leak and pursuing legal action against the person who released her private photographs.
The statement read that the police have been officially asked to look into who first distributed BLACKPINK Jennie’s private photos. After gathering information and keeping an eye on the situation, they filed their lawsuit in September. It said that in the past, YG has chosen not to comment or state our opinion to lessen the harm. They realized, though, that they could no longer ignore the widespread dissemination of gossip, criticism, personal assaults, sexual harassment, and invasions of privacy that came with the intimate photos. As a result, they want to make it clear that they are taking legal action to make things right.
The posts that aim to harm the reputation of the musicians will be subject to “strong legal action,” according to YG.”We want to inform you that this case is being filed for violations of the Information and Communication Network Act, violation of illegal information and distribution, and improper use of communication media.”
Alleged images of V (born Kim Taehyung) of BTS and Jennie had been circulating online for months, fueling speculation that the two K-Pop singers were travelling secretly and frequently spotted together. While V and Jennie remained silent, ARMY and Blinks flatly denied the rumours and demonstrated that it was primarily Photoshopped. Big Hit said last week that they would be filing a lawsuit without mentioning V or Jennie in their statement. The eldest member of BTS, Jin, had criticised the “haters,” alleging that they had sought conflict.
