On the Weverse social platform, fans are able to leave messages that idols are able to see and respond to. Concerned fans have spotted users leaving graphic depictions of violence they allegedly plan to take against Beomgyu and Hueningkai during the US leg of TXT’s 2022 TOMORROW X TOGETHER WORLD TOUR <ACT : LOVE SICK> tour.

Fans worried for Beomgyu and Hueningkai’s safety have sent messages to HYBE in order to make the company aware of the threats being made and in hopes of the company beefing up security for the group.

Additionally, fans have also begun reaching out to the individual venues where TXT will be performing during their time in the US, with some venues appearing to respond and assure fans that the utmost care is being taken with this situation.

HYBE has not yet responded to the concerns presented by fans, but many are attempting to bring more awareness to the situation by using the hashtags #ProtectBeomgyu and #ProtectHueningKai.
