The issue of malicious comments is now attracting attention around the world
Although it has been a problem for a long time, in a modern society where mental health is becoming more important, the hardships and stress caused by malicious comments to celebrities are beyond imagination.
BLACKPINK’s Rosé emphasized the importance of mental health in relation to malicious comments. Rosé attended a mental health event hosted by U.S. President Joe Biden’s wife Jill Biden for the spouses of the APEC summits leaders.
In this event, Rosé shared that she felt like eBay she did were never enough, that no matter how hard she tried, there would always be someone who created stories about her. The singer stressed how important it was to talk about the mental health problem, no matter how hard it was.
In response to Rosé’s words, Mrs. Jill Biden also said we often hid and ignored our mental health problems, but only when we revealed them could we begin healing.
Earlier, Yoo Jae-seok also criticized malicious comments. He mentioned the rumors that Jeon So-min’s departure from SBS’s “Running Man” was because of malicious comments. Yoo Jae-seok said, “There was a sudden rumor that So-min’s departure was due to malicious comments. That’s not true. If it’s because of malicious comments, why should the victim lose her job? If she was hurt by the malicious comments, we wouldn’t stayed still.”
It is true that fan culture has matured compared to the past, but many stars are still complaining about the hardships caused by malicious comments. Malicious comments and mental health issues have come to be considered worldwide beyond Korea. Even if there is no sharp solution right now, hopefully the answer can be found as the problems are being raised.
