READ: Victoria Song Addresses Hate Comments Online
After posting her goodbye to her bandmate Sulli on Instagram, f(x)’s leader Victoria Song took it out to Weibo and addressed the malicious comments from netizens on social media.
And she wrote, “Since when have Weibo, WeChat, and Instagram become the rulers? The rulers by which we measure ethics, people’s relationships, emotions, anything that people wish to measure. A public platform is a place where you can share things with others. When did it become a place to put on a show? You can post if you want, and if you don’t want to, you don’t have to. There is no empathy, just yourself.”
This was posted in light of the incidents that led to her friend and colleague’s death. With that she continued to write, “Don’t speculate. If you have time to come up with a story, what do you think about spending that time doing something more meaningful? Please don’t let become your life. You can’t find your identity in a world that’s made up of falsehoods. People need to take walks through reality. Please don’t waste your time. Please don’t tell others what they need to do with their lives. Even well-intentioned advice has its boundaries. Don’t overstep. What right do you have to tell a stranger to do this, or don’t do that, when your own life is a wreck? Everyone’s life is different and unique. Who has the right to tell someone else how to live?”
