Exo managers hitting fans.
This is ridiculous, honestly, because two of these incidents were completely harmless and the fans were doing nothing wrong. (I say two because in that middle one, it seemed like that fan was the only one still following them, while everyone else stayed back and manager’s actions are somewhat justifiable considering what she was doing) I understand these mangers must undergo a lot of pressure. Pressure from the company to get the idols where they need to go, and keeping everything on schedule. And along with that, they have to deal with fans who are screaming and pushing their idols when they’re just trying to walk in an airport. It’s normal to be annoyed and pissed because idols have gotten hurt, stalked, and had their privacy invaded by insane fans. Although the managers aren’t necessarily there to be bodyguards to the idols, they are there to keep them safe; to protect them. And if we look at the antonyms of protect: “expose, neglect, attack, harm,” look at that. They shouldn’t be harming. Especially hitting and with that much force, too. Bottom line is: this is not acceptable. Managers might have to deal with a lot, but they need to be the ones who maintain control and composure when dealing with these situations. How completely rude, immature, and unprofessional of them to go slapping someone away. There are other ways to deal with these situations with fans, and you’d think they would. It’s kind of their job. But I guess not. I’m really disappointed, I feel bad for Exo, or any other idol group for that matter, who probably feel guilty because of this treatment towards their fans whom they appreciate so much, and hate seeing get hurt.
I thought S.M might be harsh sometimes, but I didn’t think it was this bad….
