f(x) Victoria was not pleased with how some netizens were interpreting her and her fellow f(x) members’ silence on social media.
It was previously reported that some antis were bashing Krystal for staying silent following Sulli’s passing, those antis criticized her for not posting something to mourn Sulli’s passing as many other celebrities had done for the past three days. Others were also bashing other f(x) members for not stating anything on social media so far.
In response to those bashers, an insider revealed that Krystal was in fact at Sulli’s memorial altar for the past three days, she had helped her family with the preparations; the insider also expressed their shock at some of the antis comments.
Victoria was also criticized on Weibo for not posting about Sulli’s passing. Victoria had previously immediately halted all activities after hearing about Sulli’s passing. She immediately flew to South Korea to attend Sulli’s funeral. It seems that f(x) Victoria became aware of the situation and of people bashing her and her members, she didn’t sit back and watch, she gave those bashers a piece of her mind.
To her Weibo story, she published a long post about how netizens should respect others’ lives and not criticize the way others choose to live their lives and express their sorrow.
In her statement, she says,
“Since when did posting on Weibo, WeChat friend circle, or Instagram become a metric? That can measure morals, interpersonal relationships, your joy, anger, grief, happiness, anything you want to measure?”

She also asks of people to respect others boundaries and to stop trying to control the way they live their lives,
“Please don’t criticize the way other people live their lives, well-intentioned advice and suggestions have their limitations, please don’t cross that boundary.
When your own life is a mess, what gives you the right to tell someone what they should and shouldn’t do?”

f(x) fans are extremely proud of her for speaking up in defense of Krystal and all other idols who have not posted to social media to mourn Sulli’s passing.
What do you think of Victoria’s post? Do you agree with her?
My Personal Thoughts
God bless Victoria, that was such a mature post. I agree with everything she said. In my opinion, what she said doesn’t only apply to this particular situation but a lot of others as well.
As I said before, everyone grieves differently and when you’re so overwhelmed, your phone is not on your mind. No one should rush any f(x) member to post anything about Sulli if at all, let them grieve in peace for crying out loud.
