Some of netizen A’s other comments include, “If you’re sorry to the baby, die quietly” and “She probably had an abortion on purpose.” The police identified netizen A by tracing her IP address and has summoned her to the station.
Baek Ji Young’s agency submitted a big pile of documents logging the many malicious comments left by netizens. A representative from her agency stated, “Do the people, who managed to say things that are inconceivable to a woman who experienced an abortion, words that are fully of sarcasm and mockery, have common sense? We will proactively take action against the netizens who left Baek Ji Young and her family with deep scars.”
