Goto Moe from ‘Produce 48‘ did a broadcast on Showroom recently, and during that stream she broke down in tears. Most in Korea and internationally believe it’s because of disgusting comments left by Korean netizens who seemed to be her antis.
-“How big are your breasts? Your boobs. I want to see your boobs. You have my vote.”
-“Would I be able to fit my head inside your p*ssy?”
-“Your clitoris. Lick, lick, lick. So tasty.”
-“Hey b*tch. Know any Korean curse words? Try saying ‘Ssibalnyeon (씨발년, bitch)’ now.”
-“I want to rear end you. I want to rear end you.”
Around there, she started to cry.
Though that seemed to only make the comments worse.
-“Why are you crying, you shaggy little b*tch?”
-“Stop crying, you transgender.”
-“Don’t come to Korea, you f*cking c*nt.”
Believing that Korean netizens made her cry, other Korean netizens spoke out in support.
-“First off, I’m really sorry on behalf of all the Koreans. Please remember you have a lot more fans than you think. A lot of Produce 48 viewers hope that you’ll be able to debut. Please don’t be discouraged. If God could give me the chance, I would love to bash those haters’ skulls.”
-“Goto Moe isn’t my pick. But I don’t think it’s normal for anyone to raid her Showroom and leave rude, gross, and sexual comment… The sh*t some people have the audacity to say behind the anonymity has killed so many celebrities. She’s only a high school student… I’m so ashamed to be Korean right now.”
-“Can’t the Japanese girls block accounts like on Korean live broadcast platforms? She should be able to report the people who are cursing at her…”
-“Moe, I’m so sorry… I don’t think I’ll ever be able to forget how devastated you look in this video.”
-“This breaks my heart. I hope the people who are leaving such hateful comments there realize what they’re doing is criminal. This is way too cruel for an eighteen year old (Korean age) to handle.”
Nice to see.
So all of that did happen, as Korean antis did leave shitty comments and Korean netizens did apologize to her. However, the reason she cried doesn’t seem like it has anything to do with the hate. Rather, according to those who watched the broadcast, it appears she was just emotional due to being stressed out and receiving a lot of support, dubbing herself a ‘crybaby’ because she gets emotional (1/2/3).
Regardless, it’s still shitty to leave comments like that, especially since she’ll likely find out about this in the news eventually and effectively it will have the same impact anyway. However, thankfully her tears in this instance don’t seem related to the hate comments.
