4Minute's Gayoon under fire for inappropriate picture

Submitted: Jan 16 2011 05:55 AM by junchan

4Minute member Gayoon is surrounded by controversy for giving the camera the middle finger. Fellow member Jiyoon uploaded the questionable picture of herself and Gayoon on her twitter account earlier.

When the picture became an issue over the internet, Jiyoon said, "I put that picture up by mistake. How do I erase it?” and deleted the original tweet. However, the picture is still accessible via her twitpic account. When it was initially posted, the title of the picture was "before going to Malaysia, last picture of Kwon Sso and Ssang Yoon. hehe". From this sentence, it’s obvious that it wasn't her intention to post pictures that would show her team members in a negative light as “Kwon Sso” Sohyun was not present in the picture. Jiyoon has since posted a new tweet with the picture of Sohyun and Gayoon she originally intended to upload.

However, netizens are unforgiving, and malicious comments towards Gayoon are being posted on online bulletin boards. Netizens are also criticizing Jiyoon, nicknaming her “team member killer” or “team kill” in short because she uploaded the picture by mistake. What do you think of this situation?

    It doesn't bother me. Sure she should be made more aware of her actions, but the public needs to remember that she's also human.
