It’s not easy being a K-pop star and even the best of them get harassed online by different fandoms and sometimes just out of malice. The latest group to be harassed online is promising rookie group Cravity who debuted in April 2020 with their legendary album ‘Season 1. Hideout: Remember Who We Are’ with the title track ‘Break all the Rules’.

As fans found problematic messages online, they poured their support for the K-pop rookie group asking Starship Entertainment to take better precautions and protect the singers. For the ones who didn’t come across the Twitter trend, Cravity artists like Wonjin and Minhee were mentioned in random posts where the users claimed that they are "ruining" the searches for Cravity.

'Starship protect your artistes'

After the online hatred was discovered by Cravity fans, they started using different hashtags for the group to make a bold statement and urge the Entertainment agency to do better. A fan wrote, “Nope. This is seriously getting out of hand. The boys are BARELY ADULTS and if you really want to protect your boys' image, you wouldn't do it so negatively. Your intention is okay but with the way you're doing it? Hell no.”

The fan added, “You're not concerned abt the image of your boys. Are you even a real fan? If you are, then let me remind you that fans are the reflection of the artist. I'm sure your faves are disgusted by your actions”, referring to the messages that were shared by users of another fandom.

Another user said, “STARSHIP I really want you to see this. You have to do something to protect your artist.​ #SSE_PROTECT_YOUR_ARTIST #STARSHIP_PROTECT_YOUR_ARTIST”, followed by a similar tweet that read, “I hope you'll be able to learn from this. We won't sit still. SSE PROTECT YOUR ARTIST!”
