NewJeans set out war with malicious commenters.
On Dec 28th, ADOR said, “Our company initiated regular legal proceedings against perpetrators of malicious activities related to NewJeans, including defamation, personal attacks, sexual harassment, the spread of groundless information and ill-intentioned criticism in the second half of this year.“
They continued, “We have filed several criminal complaints using information provided by fans as well as collected through our monitoring initiatives.“
The agency explained, “We included in the criminal complaints the multiple postings that involve sexual harassment and abhorrent content for violating Obscene Acts by Using Means of Communication.“
The agency emphasized, “Postings that modify the artists’ clips or videos with malicious intention are also subject to legal actions. We are taking strongest measures possible against such malicious activities as all the members of the group are minors.“
NewJeans’ side heralded strong legal actions against malicious postings in the future. They added, “We ask for active information from fans.“
