Loyal fans of TWICE ( 트와이스) have taken to Twitter over the past few days to call for their agency JYP Entertainment to protect the popular girl group from the now-infamous “Slave Room” group chat.
For context, the “Slave Room” is an online forum created by a foreign man (nicknamed the “American Guy”) pretending to be a Korean. Allegedly, the culprit had threatened minors and adult members of the chatroom to spread malicious rumours about groups like IZ*ONE, Oh My Girl, and ITZY, plus TWICE.
As seen in some of the receipts gathered by ONCEs (TWICE’s fandom name) regarding the case, members of the forum, including “American Guy” himself, would often post several slanders and hateful remarks targeted towards the 9-piece K-pop ensemble. Some of the criticisms include Momo’s relationship with Super Junior’s Heechul and also TWICE’s choreography for their song “Signal”.
Soon after the news came to light, a lot of die-hard fans of the “Cheer Up” hit-makers have been devastated over the fact that the group’s home label didn’t bother to take action. Consequently, many have started trending the hashtag #JYPTakeAction movement to urge JYP Entertainment to take necessary steps in protecting their artistes.
