Microdot admits rumors about his parents' fraud are true

Rapper Microdot has admitted that the rumors about his parents having committed fraud are true, and said he will take responsibility and apologize to the victims.

On November 21st, Microdot announced, “Although I know it is too late, I will meet every single person that was affected by my parents’ actions and apologize to them face to face”.

Earlier this week, Microdot was in hot water after several sources said they had been affected by the rapper’s parents’ fraud years ago. According to their claims, Microdot’s parents, who used to work in stock farming in Jaecheon, Chungcheongbuk-do Province, took money from their neighbors and fled to New Zealand.

After the posts spread out, Microdot announced that the rumors are false and he will take legal action. However, in the official announcement that was released today, he said, “I have hurt the victims twice by saying the rumors are false and I would take legal action againsat them. I am sorry. Although I know it is too late, I will meet every single victim and listen to them”.

Microdot continued and said, “When our family immigrated to New Zealand, I was 5 years old. When the news articles about my parents were published yesterday, I didn’t really know about these incidents. That’s why I said the rumors were false and I would take legal action. After reading many other articles that were published after my announcement, I thought about it a lot and it was really hard for me”.

Lastly, the rapper said, “As their son, I thought that I need to take responsibility. I would like to say that I am really sorry for those who were victims and their families, and I promise I will try my best to solve the problem”.

too late mf, i wonder what all his "famous" friends think about this

I'm confused. He seems to say that he really didn't know about the fraud (it's not surprising his parents would hide that from him growing up). It was stupid of him to immediately deny it, but if he genuinely didn't know, I can see how it's plausible he'd get defensive of his parents. is there something I'm missing?

This is basically the Streisand Effect.
If you hadn't started going after those who mentioned it, most people wouldn't have known and now you just shot yourself in the foot and ruined your own damn career.

Maybe he thought it's one of this slander mob action so many other stars were victim of? After all who you gonna believe strangers on internet or your family. Too bad his parents are truly POS, apparently they just sold their NZ restaurant and are up in the air again.

He should've looked into it before trying to claim it was slander, and YIKES @ his parents still being at it. Wow.

i don't see why a very young child should be held accountable for their parents actions, esp if he's saying he was 5 in Korean age. he shouldn't have threatened legal action, that was a stupid move, but honestly, fuck this culture of holding you to your family's actions.

i mean i can see why he would jump to threatening legal action first, say shit about my parents and id prob do the same. i doubt he knew very much about what his parents did.

he should be apologizing for his reaction, but perhaps his parents should consider apologizing for the actual crime? He was young, probably never knew, and now sounds like he's decided it's true without his parents even confirming it to him.

Assuming he's otherwise a nice guy, I hope this doesn't tank his career. Defending your parents is normal, and having the ability to admit you were wrong is a pretty good trait to encourage.

I wonder why Sanchez hasn't been brought into this. They're brothers after all, and he's older than Microdot.

He was a kid when it happened and his parents probably hid it from him, so I don't think he should be held responsible for the actions of his parents from twenty years ago.

He was on "I live alone" last week, and garner a lot of positive attention plus his parents was with him on some other show, and victims recognized them, on pann post of family member of one victims there are already sbs personnel asking for contact info. His parents are the worst tbh.

Ohhh okay, it makes sense now, thanks. Yeah their parents seem like horrible people.

It is possible. I mean if parents want, they will hide stuff from you. I found stuff from my family that were shocking to me after 25 years. I really had no idea.

I don’t buy that he was completely unaware lol not that whole story maybe but enough to be blocking the victims’ children on sns hmmmm?

Some of the victims have said that Microdot and Sanchez have both had them blocked on instagram for the past two years

tbh if someone was saying that shit about my parents and I had no reason to believe it was true I would probably do the same

Definitely the best statement he could manage given the situation and his own actions in response. Hopefully he can indeed express proper apologies to them.
