The agency began their message by thanking all the numerous fans who supported the actress all throughout her career up until now. In continuation, they want to inform the public about their response to the infringements of rights against “The Witch’s Diner” star.
Creative Group ING explained that malicious rumors based on false information, malicious comments and posts, and other online posts that insult the actress on other online portals and social media have been getting worse.
In addition, publishing posts that qualify as defamation to her image as a public figure that is based on groundless information that hasn’t been confirmed is clearly illegal, and to protect our artist, it is just right to subject those commenters to strong legal action.
