Lotte Duty Free recently held a special event for EXO fans. But their plan backfired as they chose the wrong promotional photo to edit.

Below is the photo.

EXO Fans Unleash Their Anger At Lotte Duty Free For Photoshopping Lay Out Of Photo

As some of you may be aware, South Korea and China's current political conflict is the main reason why Lay is not able to promote anything related to EXO or K-Pop.

Which was the reason why he was photoshopped out of the promotional photo.

However, fans are criticizing Lotte Duty Free, as they feel they could have just picked a photo where Lay was not in it to begin with.

 

Should Lotte Duty Free have chosen another photo instead of photoshopping this one?

Lotte actually did this to save Exo. China is against Lotte due to some political tensions. Lay is held in high regard in China as he is an ambassador of a Youth party. If he were to be seen on a Lotte promotional poster, his career in China would be put to risk. This is one of the main reasons he did not participate in the event in the first place.

They're so wrong for this. LAY will always be a member of EXO even if he isn't there all the time. He hasn't actual LEFT the band, so this was very disrespectful. SM, you messed up big time.

And also Lay is very successful. Even if he went solo he'd do great. If you're hating, just get out of the fandom. True EXO-L still support Lay, as he is an extraordinary musician.

Well SM should take responsibility for this. They ARE the company controlling this band. They should have the power to say how they want things. I'm sure SM saw this before it was posted. If so, why didn't they change it?

How is that SM's fault? Isn't Lotte the ones who actually did the photoshopping? Besides EXO started endorsing Lotte Duty Free before Lay was unable to participate in group activities.
If Lay was in the photos, it would cause more harm than good. The situation between South Korea and China is causing him to be unable to participate with EXO. His career is on the line.
