On May 31, MMO Entertainment posted a statement on their official site, saying, “According to observations made by the company as well as fans, we have confirmed the presence of malicious comments online [about Kang Daniel] that are filled with personal attacks and even come close to sexual harassment. We earnestly ask those who crossed the line with their malicious comments to refrain from doing so.”
The statement continued with the words, “If this issue continues, we will inevitably be taking strong measures without any chances for a settlement. We ask that you continue to love all of the trainees who are under MMO Entertainment.”
This is not the first time an agency has warned malicious commenters, as Brave Entertainment also released a statement regarding fellow contestant Samuel Kim.
