With YG Entertainment caught up in scandals related to drugs and other crimes, it seems that it is affecting other businesses as well indirectly.
Sports and fashion brand Adidas has recently been criticized by WINNER fans at the moment after discovering that all promotions done by the YG boy group had been deleted from social media. Fans initially thought that it was a move by the global sports brand that was for distancing themselves from YG Entertainment altogether, but were later angry when they discovered that promotions done by BLACKPINK were still up on social media.
It can be speculated and guessed that WINNER member SeungHoon, who is currently suspected of being involved in former iKON member B.I’s drug scandal, was one main reason why Adidas has decided to take down all promotions done by WINNER. At the moment, Adidas has not released any official statement regarding their reasons for doing so.
However, netizens have been scoffing at WINNER fans for their behavior lately. Below are some of the comments that they have left regarding WINNER fans.
“Even if they burn bridges with Adidas, Adidas has nothing to lose LOL, why do WINNER fans think they amount to anything”
“LOL, to be honest, it wasn’t WINNER doing Adidas a favor by being models for them, Adidas was actually doing a favor for WINNER by letting them be models lol.”
