SPEED’s Taewoon angers fans over tweet about Ladies’ Code
A tweet from SPEED’s Taewoon has angered fans of the girl group Ladies’ Code.
Taewoon’s quickly deleted a tweet was about the effort of fans who helped Ladies’ Code’s song “I’m Fine Thank You” reach number one on several charts to fulfil deceased member EunB’s wish.
The tweet said: “Sympathy should end as sympathy… These ridiculous events that are becoming reality because of a surge of emotion… Is that really something that is for them… It makes me angry… Attention is something that’s more beautiful when you give it to them when they exist, so why now;;… I really wish we could send EunB off peacefully.”
After receiving intense backlash from the fans and netizens, Taewoon immediately deleted the tweet and sent out another tweet that said: “Those who keep their mouths shut do better. Let’s keep the mouth shut.”
A second tweet apologising for his actions was then put up saying, “I’m sorry that I expressed the sadness I felt in my heart as a fellow colleague in the wrong manner. I am sincerely praying that RiSe and Sojung recover speedily… and lastly, I respectfully send my condolences…”
같은 동료로써 속상하고 안타까운 마음에 대한 표현 방법이 잘못되었던점 죄송합니다.진심으로 빠른 쾌유를 기도하고 빌고있습니다..마지막으로 삼가고인의 명복을 빕니다…
