It has been revealed that Cube Entertainment will take legal action against the netizens behind the spreading of malicious rumors concerning their artist duo Trouble Maker.
Trouble Maker have been living up to their name by stirring attention with their risque concepts, but it seems some netizens took it too far by making false rumors look like facts being reported in an article, creating confusion.
According to Cube representatives, the perpetrator(s) presented the malicious rumors about a scandal between HyunA and Hyunseung and Hyuna becoming pregnant like a news article with the help of a mobile app.
A rep revealed, "We discovered the content containing the malicious rumors about HyunA and Hyunseung this morning... The rumors were disguised as a news article, making it easy to accept as facts by netizens who may come across it. They even made another 'news article' containing a fake response from us [the agency]." This fake agency response supposedly read, 'She's going to have the child'.
Another rep also mentioned, "As the related rumor spread, we were contacted with a lot of questions. We decided that we are unable to sit and watch the defamation of character of these young artists. We decided to request a police investigation and will take legal action."
