OMEGA X came under the spotlight after a recording and a video showed that they had been verbally and physically assaulted by Kang Seong Hee. The CEO denied the allegations of abuse via statements made by the company and then again through her social media, though netizens remain unconvinced.

As concerns continue to be raised regarding the members’ mistreatment, here are some of the notable people who have publicly called out Spire Entertainment and CEO Kang.

1. Edward Avila

Beauty guru, musician and influencer Edward Avila has worked with OMEGA X in the past and was therefore able to see their interactions with CEO Kang.

After the video of her assault on the members was released, specifically leader Jaehan, he once again addressed the issue, empathizing with the members.

2. Witnesses

Multiple witnesses came forward to expose the mistreatment of OMEGA X. First was, of course, the netizen who released the original recording.

Guys, I was waiting outside for the Uber Eats that I ordered and I saw the company CEO hitting the members. I really didn’t know what to do since my hands were shaking so much. They were being hit right in front of me but I couldn’t do anything.

After that, from people who saw how the members were treated at the airport…

…to people who saw the constant mistreatment at their hotel in Los Angeles, the story has been made pretty clear.
