Ailee Has Been Removed from Advertisements

Ailee Has Been Removed from Advertisements

Singer Ailee, who has recently been a topic of news headlines due to old nude photos, has been taken off of advertisements. 

There have been some different reactions to this from netizens on various Korean online communities.

Some have said that it’s a matter of course considering the company’s image. Others, however, think that removing her from advertisements was too much, saying that they wonder if taking her off was justified, and that they want Ailee back on the ads.

The chicken company in question explained, “Ailee’s commercial contract hasn’t ended. But consumers have been showing sensitive reactions to Ailee’s recent situation, and Ailee’s agency is also not entirely keen on the singer’s exposure at this time, so we took certain steps.”

What do you think? Was removing Ailee from the ads justified, or was it a step too far?

I think that this is right for now because if she gets out more, people will criticize her more. Can't wait to see you out more, Ailee. HWAITING! STAY STRONG!

Ailee's case is nothing compared to Kim K which made her own sex tape and there are still big brands who wants to collaborate with Kim K when the real fact is Kim does not even have a single talent and only know how to flash her assets. And I believe those nude pics are one of Ailee's own regrets. She must have loved her ex very much and probably thought he'd loved her back the same way too; thus giving him her own nude pics. But eventually, Ailee's ex turned out to be such an ass. Fucking dickhead for doing this to harm Ailee's future and instant cash. Please stay strong, Ailee. What has past cannot be turned but you can control the future. Lots of your true fans are still rooting for you and we got your back. YOU CAN DO IT AILEE ♥

There's not really a whole lot of negative feedback toward Ailee from fans on this whole scandal. So I guess they took her off the ads just in case. She had a really positive and supportive response at the Melon Music Awards, so I bet they probably could have left her on the ads without too much uproar.

It might be safer for her to be removed as part of the 'self-reflection' process, so I agree with them. If she continued as usual people would have complained (like they did with IU, TARA scandals).

They shouldn't have done that in my opinion. I think she should stay below the radar but she should keep up CF and activities.

Ailee stay strong!

They're not being rude or mean. It's kind of like a 'damage control' measure that they found necessary for the sake of the business company/companies. Sometimes, the company needs to make executive decisions that don't seem so nice to the public, but essential for the company as an organisation. It's a corporate thing... On a side note, I really hope that Ailee recovers from this whole issue. Such a talented lady, now faced with this. She definitely doesn't deserve this kind of hardship.

don't lay the blame on ailee.

she's a victim.

don't lay the blame on advertiser.

the advertisement is sensitive area.

ex broke the law, internet press invade her privacy for more click

it's not bad mood in korea.

this did the opposite effect to what the company was expecting...... removing ailee doesnt really remove trouble and help their sales.. but made them lose customers that were ailee's fans.....

I can see why they would remove her If it was about something else, but in food products it makes little sense to me to take the effort to remove her. If I wanted to eat a certain brand of chicken, I'm going to eat that chicken.

In the end it's their company, they will do what they think is best and they have the right to. I just think it's kind of dumb.

It is understandable cause most contracts come with a moral clause. I hope they don't sue her or want their money back for damages to sales and their repetition. Why is it those that are successful have some issue if exposed will cause major damage. Just goes to show everything you do matter a lot.

that's just bad. it's not her fault her allegedly private photos got leaked. everyone has their own crazy past even celebrities.

@thuongdoan  Because she's a public figure so its different.  Just because "there are tons of people" that take those kinds of photos doesn't mean its the most smart thing to do.  Not many people understand that Ailee is a rolemodel that needs to set an example to inspiring minds and it doesn't help her position to be one of those "tons of people" that take stupid nudies.

@vural Most likely there's a moral clause in her commercial contracts. It's not up to her to continue on being the spoke person of any brand if the company deems her unsuitable. A big lesson to be learned here. Don't let anyone take any nude pictures unless one doesn't mind being seen by the whole world, boyfriend or otherwise.
