2PM’s Taecyeon Speaks Out Against Online Harassment Of Members
Taecyeon has posted to ask for fans’ help in preventing the bullying of 2PM members through messages online.
On July 3, Taecyeon posted on Twitter with several screenshots of messages that were sent to 2PM members via email or messenger. They include swearing as well as messages such as “I know your phone number and address!” One message about member Junho uses angry emoticons, tells him to go to the hospital, and then includes multiple signs for laughter. Another with Taecyeon’s name in the subject line asks why he has blocked the user when they were informing him about a danger, and it also includes signs for laughter and swearing.
Taecyeon writes, “Hyoro7741@gmail.com firstname.lastname@example.org probably same person doing this sick and twisted stuff to not just me, but all of my members. If you have any information regarding this person(s) let me know. I am not going to let this crazy maniac bully us. 2pm needs your help Hottests!”
He added in a second tweet, “Lets stop this person from hurting my members.”
