JYP Entertainment Takes Legal Action For Malicious Rumors Regarding TWICE
JYP Entertainment has announced that legal action has been taken on behalf of TWICE.
On June 8, the agency released the following statement:
Hello. This is JYPE.
Especially on a certain online community, there have recently been continuous cases of writing and spreading groundless false rumors about our artist.
We recognized this and collected evidence, and we filed civil and criminal complaints against those who wrote or circulated [the posts] for spreading false information, defamation, interference with business, and more. We plan to continuously take legal action on other similar cases.
The judgment was made that content that we have filed complaints for also contributed to defamation and interference with business of not only the artist but also the company. Including these damages, we are taking the highest level of civil and criminal action possible.
We have announced several times that we will take all possible legal action for thoughtless slander and the spread of groundless false information regarding our artists, and we are filing complaints regularly based on our monitoring and reports from fans regarding these matters together with a specialized law firm.
We once again request caution in order for these matters to not cause unnecessary damage.
