NCT Taeyong has been the subject of many online discussions for the past months, after the informant ‘A’ who help the victim ‘B’ get their justice spoke up about how Taeyong treated ‘B’ in the past.
Not too long ago, ‘A’ claimed they were getting threatening messages from Taeyong’s fans who exposed their location, private information and threatened to do more because of the pain ‘A’ had allegedly caused Taeyong by spreading the bullying rumors.
Fans were split into two sides; the Korean side wrote a letter to SM demanding they kick him out of the group, while the international side was very defensive and wanted SM to sue the malicious haters and commenters.
‘A’ then starting alleging that ‘B’ didn’t feel Taeyong’s sincerity in his apology which added fuel to the fire.
