Singer-songwriter IU’s label, EDAM Entertainment, announced on March 23rd that the individuals behind hate comments against IU have received criminal punishment. The label had issued an official warning stating that they would take strong legal action back in February against the commenters.
The label also stated that in October of 2019, the offenders were first punished by ‘Article 311’ of the criminal law. However, a second round of complaints have already been going under investigation, and the label has no thoughts on being lenient with these crimes. The label has also suggested that fans continue reporting evidence of hate comments by sending them their way.
