since the news was broken a few days ago, not only has there been a justifiable outcry against the men who committed these salacious crimes against women, there's been another, slightly stranger, reaction in regards to this news: fans are constantly bringing up the interactions these criminals had with their biases.
"here's this fancam of XX biting his lips at YY"
"remember when XX took pictures with YY?"
"XX used to say he was a fan of YY..."
and i don't know how to explain it, but these sort of posts, their frequency, and the sheer amount of traffic/rts they generate, make me uncomfortable. in my opinion these posts are almost exploitative in nature, as they don't seem to generate any new discussion, they just seem to prey on the fear and morbid interests of fans who can't help but wonder, "maybe my fave was involved?"
and i know, it's human nature to be curious, to observe things in hindsight and pick them apart. but unless you are actually trying to inform others, please refrain from these posts. please refrain from spreading these posts. there's something that just feels wrong about it, especially when it's been established that the identities of the victims (or possible victims) should not be the focal points of the following discussions.
think before making another public tweet/post highlighting the times female celebrities came in contact with those people. think about why you're doing it to begin with -- and if it's not for the right reason, don't do it at all.
tl;dr stop insinuating things and stop creating panic for no reason
im tired of seeing girl groups getting mentioned in this JJY case
