The (G)I-DLE vs Ateez fan war has been going on for a while as fans of both fourth-gen groups have been seen clashing with each other on several occasions. It all started with the girl group’s in-house producer and leader, Soyeon, being called out by Ateez fans for plagiarizing a popular song from the boy group. Back in March of 2022, (G)I-DLE’s Soyeon produced a song for the survival show, ‘My Teenage Girl’ where she was one of the judges on the show. A girl group unit performed an “original” single, ‘Sun’ which was produced by Soyeon who had claimed the song was one of her originals.

Fans immediately had pointed out that Soyeon had obviously copied Ateez’s famous 2019 single, ‘Wave’. Fans of the boy group started calling out the Soyeon for the incident after which she apologized to fans for causing the controversy but did not actually apologize to Ateez or credit their producer Edenery for the plagiarized song. Now, months after that, it seems like the two fandoms are still not able to make amends as Neverlands (fans of (G)I-DLE) were caught making ableist jokes about Ateez and used Jongho’s 2020 car accident as a joke to bring the boy group down.

(G)I-DLE fans troll Ateez Jongho

On May 30, one Neverland took to Twitter in response to a now-deleted tweet from an Ateez fan. The original tweet from an Atiny belittled the girl group’s success as they said, “6 million Spotify monthly listeners but 2.5k venues? what in the bots.” Neverlands defended the girl group by stating that the girl group’s debut was a hit. One Atiny made a questionable comment about former (G)I-DLE member Soojin who was kicked out of the girl group due to her school bullying scandal back in 2021. The Atiny said, “They debuted with a hit” The only hit they debuted with is Soojin, the people hitter.” Soon after the tweet started picking up, one (G)I-DLE fan attacked the boy group’s fandom by using Ateez maknae Jongho’s 2020 car accident as a joke.

The (G)I-DLE fan said, “Ateez' only hit being Jongho's car accident get real.” Back in February of 2020, the Ateez vocalist and maknae was injured in a car accident and had injured his leg at the time. Ateez fans are calling out fans of the girl group who are making ableist comments about the accident and are using an accident to be the butt of their hate comments against the fandom. Not only that but Ateez fans are claiming that Neverlands have been joking about Ateez Mingi’s anxiety and mental health issues. It was also claimed that Neverlands wished death upon Ateez members on multiple occasions including when the members were diagnosed with Covid-19.

‘They started this so, #gidledisband’

As both fandoms clash and (G)I-DLE fans seem to have taken it way too far with comments about mental health issues and using videos of wheelchair-bound people to drag Atinys. Many Neverlands are asking the OP (Original Poster) to delete their tweet as it is calling out more negative attention to the girl group. One Atiny said, “Some people dont know the context of the #gidledisband tag, as y'all said the grp didnt do anything. so did ateez. what'd they do to get ableist comments, to make fun of the car accident, dth threats and shit, and when we trend a hashtag we cross the line?” One Ateez fan said, “It’s quite frankly funny how people from that fandom will claim to not have done what we are saying that they’ve done, but at the same time they’ll clearly take offense to our posts. so does the shoe fit or not?”

One Atiny called out a Neverland saying, “Trending #gidledisband is toxic but kekeing over someone getting a car accident and making ableist comments isn’t?” One more Atiny added, “They’re already deleting tweets / clearing searches and trying to play the victims but don’t forget that they started this “fw” not once but twice then went on to say awful stuff like this. don’t act surprised when we defend our faves after y’all did all this.” One Atiny said, “That's what you get when you speak on ateez, mock their mental health, being ableist and wish death upon them. #gidledisband is the least hurtful thing atinys could do. but it's very much deserved. I smiled. y'all better keep ateez out of your mouth next time.” One fan said, “​​Neverlands giggling about car accidents. I personally don’t care about what atinys do with this tag.”
