Recently, EXID fans have been worried about LE’s disappearance from social media. Now, she has bravely revealed the real reason behind her absence: a harasser has been photoshopping indecent images of herself and her fellow EXID members.
Tweeting for the first time in two months on January 21, LE told fans that a person from an unknown foreign country has been harassing EXID for a while.
안녕 여러분 요새 제 인스타 그리고 exid 전체 멤버들 인스타에 악성댓글을 달고 저에겐 심지어 나체 합성사진을 보내는 등 미친 미꾸라지가 한마리 있어서 인스타에 사진을 못올렸네요. 외국 분이신것 같은데 아무리 신고를 해서 계정 삭제가 되어도 계속해서 계정을 만들어내는 노력을 보여주시니

The harasser in question has repeatedly sent toxic comments to the members as well as photoshopped nude images. Unsurprisingly, this has made LE so uncomfortable that she no longer wants to post photos on Instagram. Her last update was almost two weeks ago.
LE isn’t the only EXID member who’s been steering clear of social media recently. Jeonghwa hasn’t updated her Instagram since January 3.
LE went on to say that no matter how many times she reports the accounts, new ones pop up in their place.
They’ve crossed the line so many times.
But she is no longer willing to suffer the harassment in silence. Turning her attention from fans to the malicious account creator, LE ended her message by implying that she will take legal action if she continues to receive cruel comments and photoshopped images.
I won’t stay still anymore 🙂 If you keep going, let’s see what happens.
Unfortunately, LE is not the only idol who’s had to deal with such repugnant behavior in the past. In March 2018, FNC Entertainment reported that they would be taking legal action against a person who photoshopped nude images of AOA’s Seolhyun and claimed the fake pictures were real.
