SM Rookie Taeyong is in trouble again (see his other online scandal here) for horrible comments online.
Note: These comments are from 2009 and we have all said stupid things when we were younger, he was a 14 year old boy when he wrote these. I'm not excusing him but I also know I would not want my entire career ruined by a stupid comment I made in the past.
I think this is a good opportunity to remember that idols are human beings, and human beings can be pretty stupid and cruel sometimes.
Personally, his comments made me immediately dislike him, since I don't believe people grow out of that kind of mindset, but I'm openminded to see if he has changed his ways.
A Korean news site has found yet another case of SM Rookie Taeyong being a complete idiot online. This time in the form of a harsh comment about a classmate. The post featured some of his fellow classmates posing for a photo.
Taeyong's comment is:
“There’s only ten people in this photo, but because of XXX, it looks like there is thirteen people.”
As far as his previous scandal where he was scamming people online SM released the statement that:
"He is deeply reflecting on his mistaken behavior due to his lack of discrimination during his junior high school days, and we sincerely apologize to those who were harmed. Not only Taeyong, but the agency itself will try to make him mature into an artist with good talent and an upright character."
Some netizen comments:
- This guy already has so~much controversies before he even debuts ㅎㅎ
- Wow…I can’t like this guy even if I want to
- Wow this is awful I’ve never not stanned an SM artist but he might become the first
