[Zenith News=Byeon Jinhee] The agency, Starship Entertainment has sued the internet trolls.
On the 4th, Starship Entertainment said "We decided that the level of malicious comments or posts against our artists, such as MONSTA X, Cosmic Girls, Soyou, Jeong Se-woon, Jang Won-young and Ahn Yoo-jin has reached the point that we shouldn't overlook anymore, so we made a delegation contract with the law firm, Ius & Lex in order to take a legal action. We presented a lawsuits on some of the internet trolls to the Seoul Gangnam police on the 4th of July."
Furthermore, they said "We wanted internet trolls to stop by themselves. Their behavior went beyond the point that we can’t handle it anymore, so we judged that mercy is not the only good way to solve it. Especially in the case of one internet troll, that person keeps on uploading posts with swear words, sexually derogatory words and other illegal acts online, continuing to insult and defame the artists, which is an illegal act."
With all those incidents, Starship Entertainment heralded a strong legal action, saying “Since there have been a heavy damage to the agency and the artist, we will show no mercy and show a tough response.”
In addition, they said “We are monitoring all of the comments containing defamation and posts with swear words. Even in the future, we will always monitor all of the malicious comments, false rumors and libel according to the law on information and communications network and take strong legal action to protect the artists’ rights. Since the reports that fans are sending can be very helpful, we urge our fans to report on the malicious comments.”
