The number of cases of abuse in the fan community app Dear U. bubble, which allows users to talk to SM Entertainment artists, is increasing.
On June 22, SM Entertainment posted a message on the message board of the app with the title, “Guidelines for prohibited acts related to the use of the ‘bubble’ service.”
During a recent conversation with Red Velvet, when one of the members said, “It’s too hot,” and a number of sexual harassment replies, such as “Then take your clothes off,“ or ”Will you upload some sexy pics?.“ were commented.
In response, SM Entertainment stated. “All users can use the service after agreeing to the rules of writing replies/comments. We prohibit obscene signs, words, or any comments that cause fear or damage the reputation of our artists and the third parties.”
If a user violates these regulations, he/she may be punished under the terms and conditions of service use and the relevant laws.
