Trigger warning; rape.
In the past 24 hours Kpop news sites have posted accusations claiming that Yoochun from JYJ had raped a woman in a bathroom.
Now, I'm a fan of Yoochun and the whole thing sounds suspicious to me but I'm not going to say he's innocent because I know NOTHING about the situation.
Recently I posted a card about an idol who has multiple sexual abuse and fraud charges and there were comments (on Vingle!!!!) saying that I was "rude af" for posting it, that he's "bae" and wouldn't do that.
People are blinded by their fandom.
Now, I can understand the conspiracy theories that all those charges (and this particular Yoochun charge) are false and the idol might be innocent (people trying to get their money, etc)
But never EVER say this:
There are also comments saying the girl was LUCKY to be raped by Yoochun.
Comments immediately calling the girl a bitch, a whore, or just someone looking to get money or fame is EXACTLY the reason why women and men don't come forward about being raped.
It's easier to suffer in silence than have society turn on you and call you a lying bitch.
So please, PLEASE remember that idols are humans just like rape victims are humans and you do NOT know them personally.
The more famous they are, the better they are at constructing an image for in front of the camera. Even your beloved oppas. It's just a fact fans of entertainers have to live with.
I'm not saying that Yoochun is guilty AT ALL, I'm saying don't you DARE turn on this girl without knowing a single fact. (And no, anything you got from Koreaboo, AllKpop, a fan translation does NOT count as fact.)
