Girls’ Generation‘s Taeyeon has had it with the haters.
On July 19, Taeyeon announced on Instagram that she will finally be taking legal action against malicious commenters in order to protect herself, her family, fans, and others around her.
She writes, “For a while now, there have been many instances where my family, acquaintances around me, and my fans have been deeply hurt by harsh malicious comments. There were a lot of people who asked me to take legal action, and my fan site proactively offered me a lot of help.”
Moreover, “[It’s been hard] for me too, but more than that my heart hurts so much to the point that it gets hot when I see my loved ones getting stressed. Since consulting my agency a few months ago, I’ve been collecting all the malicious comments and pictures,” she says.
She continues, “The legal process has already begun, but I plan on adding [more materials]. Fans, if you have any materials [of malicious activity] please send them to me so I can collect them. I’m sorry for making you suffer the same hurt, and I am thankful to you for taking the initiative before anyone else and providing support.”
And finishes with, “I thought I was strong enough, but especially after this incident, I feel like I will have to become even stronger. You and me, SONEs, let’s enjoy the party as we always have!”
