TWICE Fans Demand Action From Lotte Duty Free As They Trend “Respect Momo”
TWICE fans are calling out Lotte Duty Free for their recent magazine and poster featuring TWICE.
Lotte Duty Free has often worked with TWICE. The group recently held the LDF FAMILY PREMIER with TWICE event.

And TWICE were just featured in Lotte Duty Free’s magazine. While Lotte Duty Free advertised all of the members shooting the magazine…
Fans felt some concern when they noticed that Momo was cropped from most of the video uploaded to advertise the magazine.
Why is Momo not there for the interview? I observed that they wore the same outfits too

Still, fans assumed that it just happened to be unintentional since the video was so short, and Momo appeared in all the group shots.
She is there (0.09) but they weirdly cut her out the static shot??? Bizarre, probably there’s a longer cut somewhere

But now, as fans are seeing the magazine and included poster of the group, fans are shocked to see that Momo was actually edited out of the group shot. Although the initial images used to advertise TWICE’s appearance showed all nine members…
The full group image in the magazine, while the same image as had been previously used for other promotions, does not include Momo, leading fans to believe she was intentionally edited out.
As Lotte Duty Free hasn’t given any reason for excluding Momo, fans are demanding that they reprint the magazine and remedy the mistake, trending #Respect Momo on Twitter. Especially since the mistake would have been difficult to make since Momo was in the originally used image.
apparently, momo is not included on lotte duty free poster and photobook. @lotteduty_jp @lottedfs_global please fix this as soon as possible, your staffs who were assigned for this should held accountable for this mess. TWICE IS NINE. PLEASE RESPECT MOMO! https://t.co/rNXxFVg3AZ

@JYPETWICE_JAPAN @lotteduty_jp @lottedfs_global please explain why Momo has been cut out? If she’s already in some material why is she so cleanly edited out in the booklet? https://t.co/2N0gxh6Vbx

Someone will get fired! 🙂
The only scenario I can think of right now is that person in charge of editing accidentally or purposely hide Momo.png layer on photoshop before printing it but there's no way not single person saw this? https://t.co/Jg2zpTfB26

How can you just print out something official without even double checking??? This is so disappointing! @lotteduty_jp @jypnation @JYPETWICE_JAPAN @JYPETWICE https://t.co/kh126a4No2

They already had the picture with all the members, why not use it? https://t.co/QNjeTK9lsA
