IZ*ONE And fromis_9’s Agency To Take Legal Action For Malicious Comments
Off The Record Entertainment will be taking legal action for malicious comments and defamation of their artists.
The agency, which houses IZ*ONE and fromis_9, posted on the groups’ fan cafes on October 17, “Slander with malicious intent and spreading false information about certain artists online and offline undoubtedly constitutes crime. Such actions can cause psychological pain and harm to not only the artists themselves, their families, and the company, but also to the fans who cherish and support the artists, so we would like to announce that our company shall take strong legal action to protect all of our artists.”
The statement continues, “If such defamation, spread of false information, malicious comments, slander, sexual harassment, and violation of portrait rights continue to occur, we will take legal action without settlement in order to protect our artists.”
“Once again, we would like to thank everyone who gives love to our artists. We promise to do our best for the protection of our artists’ rights through constant monitoring and strong action. We ask for your continuous warm encouragement and support. Thank you,” the agency concludes.
fromis_9 recently made their comeback with “Love Bomb,” while IZ*ONE is preparing for their debut on October 29.
