– Indie member A
Touched a fan in a private area while say he had aspermia so they wouldn’t need to use condoms.
– Indie band’s former manager B
Promised to buy a fan dinner and kept touching her chest and behind multiple times.
– Indie member C
Got a fan’s number and called her to say, “I want to sleep with you, why won’t you let me?”
– Indie member D
Invited a fan over to his house and told her, “I was sexually abused when I was younger so I’ve become addicted to sexual acts” before trying to sexually harass her.

1. [+252, -15] And yet they all act like they’re better than everyone else for doing “real music”… ㅋㅋ pathetic

2. [+177, -27] But does this fall under the category of #metoo? The purpose of #metoo is to expose the unfair relationships between a boss and his employee or a mentor and his student, positions where power can be abused and the women can’t do anything in fear of backlash or losing her job. There’s no relationship of power between a singer and his fan… can’t you just report this stuff to the police? Why hold it in all this time and then try and ride on the #metoo movement?…

3. [+101, -21] I totally support #metoo but I don’t understand this gaslighting stuff. Isn’t that a gray area? To psychologically manipulate someone? People aren’t mind controllers… you can’t just comply with someone and then claim to be gaslighted. Sure, I get that some indie band members can approach you in a gross way, but if they thought something romantic was going on between you two and the woman suddenly claims she was being “gaslighted”, how do you solve that? At what point is it a romantic relation and when does it become gaslighting?

4. [+13, -1] I seriously want to know who the guy claiming aspermia is ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ what a psycho, I just want to see what he looks like

5. [+11, -4] How is this #metoo at all, this is just alphabet play at this point ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

6. [+10, -3] Why do women continue to follow these men in knowing what’s going to happen? Do you think your oppa won’t be like that?

7. [+7, -1] Just release the names… there are a ton of bands who are going to be caught in the crosshairs of this

8. [+6, -2] A, B, C, D??? How is this #metoo?? So we can just go around claiming A this, D that???

9. [+5, -0] Most of this stuff, you can just decline anything further and leave… this has nothing to do with #metoo ㅋㅋ

10. [+4, -1] How is this #metoo ㅋㅋㅋㅋ this is driving me crazy, please stop tainting the movement. Gaslighting? What a joke… Now women who voluntarily went over to a man’s house is claiming that he “mind controlled her” into doing stuff with him ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ You’re seriously trying to say that a man offering a woman something and the woman accepting it is the man “gaslighting” her ㅋㅋㅋ And honestly, why would you even go to an after party of an indie band??? Wasn’t it to go and see them personally?….
