Wonder Girls’ Sohee bullied on Twitter


Sohee from the Wonder Girls

Sohee from the Wonder Girls has proved that celebrities are not immune from, but rather more vulnerable to, bullies online.

Since April 7, a Twitter user has been posting tweets which imply that he is dating the star. The posts also make explicit references to Sohee and repeatedly call her a “sex kitten.”

JYP Entertainment, the agency that represents the Wonder Girls, issued a staunch warning to the Twitter user on April 8.

“Should you keep spreading false rumors about our artist Sohee and keep linking her to obscene materials, we will sue for defamation,” it said. “We’ve asked that you delete your posts on many occasions. You have been warned.”

It further said that it will refer the case to Gangnam Police’s cybercrime squad on April 9, but it appears the warnings will not be heeded.

“So sue me. I won’t delete the posts,” the Twitter user replied bluntly.
