Twice fans are rallying for K-pop star Nayeon after she openly talked about receiving harsh comments from trolls who have "scolded" her and asked her "why she is like that always." Fans took to social media to urge more and more fans to come forward and speak on her behalf. Twice fans earlier slammed JYP Entertainment, the label of Twice, asking them to take strict actions against trolls who had shared fake information and malicious messages against Twice online.

For the unversed, Twice fans have been using their social media platforms to speak of the malicious comments that Twice received for a while. Earlier, in the "slave rooms" controversy, it was revealed that an "American" man allegedly ran an online campaign to spread hatred against girl groups like IZ*ONE, Twice, Itzy, Oh My Girl, and more. In a shocking revelation, some Twitter users revealed screenshots of the online forums known as slave rooms where various users including minors were asked to spread misinformation by someone who goes by the nickname "American guy", known as the "psycho" in the online forums. Failing to do so, "American guy" threatened to leak the users' public info.

Another user shared, "I rlly dont understand those people who find happiness by saying hurtful words to someone. Like for real, y'all need some therapy." A Twice fan slammed haters saying, "IF YOU DON’T LIKE HER JUST GET FCKING LOST, these mofos won’t stop bothering her geez get a life. Ya’ll don’t know how Nayeon brings happiness to us. Pls leave her alone. WE LOVE OUR BUNNY #ProtectNayeon #RespectNayeon."

Gtfo on twc bubbles stupid antis! We Love Nayeon!" Jack Phan, CMO of AirDeck official wrote, "Artists and idols are here to for us to appreciate their talents.

While various K-pop fandoms come to protect their stars from online hatred, for artists the unfortunate cycle of sick trolls continues. In April, former AOA member, K-pop singer Kwon Mina took to social media to ask why viewers can't be more understanding and must leave harsh comments. Worried fans took to social media to pray for her well-being after she shared a graphic self-harm image and the accounts of hatred that she has received in the past few months.
