These "Fans" Are Fat Shaming a Member And I'm Livid

This showed up on my FB feed today and I am fuming.

disclaimer: before anyone says "why are you sharing this, you're just making it a bigger issue" I want to clear up that I saw this hours ago and didn't say anything but now its a HUGE deal spreading to every major site and forum. I'd rather discuss it here in a place where I trust my community members and I know we'll be respectful than have you guys hear about it somewhere else and see the nasty comments others are leaving.
I've already written about Koreaboo fat shaming, or stylists dressing one member differently cause they think she's fat, but this is a whole new level of disgusting.

This is straight from the fans. Singling out one member for her body. It's dispicable.

This is Kyla from the new girl group, Pristin. She's FIFTEEN YEARS OLD.

She's half Korean, born and raised in California, and she's one of the younger members of Pristin (maybe maknae? sorry I'll edit this when I confirm!)

But, she's not stick-thin like other idols that Korean fans are used to.

But looking at her fellow members, is there any one girl that stands out because of her size? In my opinion NO but Korean fans have ridiculous standards and have decided to 'punish' her for her weight.

They literally stopped cheering for her. Just her.


At 0:48 you could argue that it was just a quite part of the fan chant, but at 1:20 right after the first part of the rap, its obvious that the crowd specifically isn't cheering for Kyla.

It happens again at the exact same times in this video:

In an online discussion about it, international fans have noticed and are sickened by her treatment.

It's gotten to the point where her brother has had to get involved and that is just so sick :(

So all I ask is that if you can on other social media, cheer on Kyla a bit. She may not see anything but I'd rather positive posts come up when you search her name then just fat shaming posts.

It's unfortunate that the story has gotten this big, but even other idols and TV hosts are talking about it - cheering for her! Link here.

Thank you! Kyla fighting!

Omg those people, really they are flipping bullies, need to grow up. I wanna see them all cause I guarantee those so called "fans" aren't rail thin. That girl is perfect, she's beautiful, and the girl is only 15 working towards her dream. They're hating cause what were they doing at 15, not even half of what that young lady does. It's sick that majority of those "fans" are clearly at an age that they should know better. I think she is awesome and she has my full support.

It's disgusting. I don't think they should even call themselves "fans" if they don't support the entire group. If she's fat, I'm a whale. XD

I'm getting a little furious about this. I know how it feels to get bullied, do you? It is not good for you to fat shaming her becoz she is fat?!? I'm 12 yrs old and its hard to have a diet like everybody else! You should think about how she feels about this. She's a teenager and from what I know she might be sadder than all of you think. I wish all of you should respect her for what she is, cause this is not about how you look its about how good you sing the song! Damn it!
