'I hope the situation clears up soon'
On a recent Instagram post by Lanciny, several people reacted to his arrest, with one fan writing "How can you be so wrong in a person?! Always thought you were a good one." Another fan wrote, "USA assault on a woman??? I'm disappointed!!"
A third fan wrote, "As a 10+ year Marteria fan I can only hope the allegations are NOT true. But if it should be the case, I am too deeply disappointed and speechless. Never ever did I expect something like that, for me you were always 'one of the good ones'. I hope the situation clears up soon."
"Assault by strangulation? I guess the lawyers will rather not allow immediate statement, but just going ahead with promo feels completely wrong," this other fan wrote. "Boy wtf the mirror sayin It applies to the presumption of innocence, and I hope in your case it applies correctly. If not, this will hurt your career massively," one fan wrote.
