LATEST week, Red Velvet’s Joy’s private Instagram account was allegedly hacked and her private images were leaked online. It is still unclear who did the trick or what their motivation was.
The images included a selfie of Joy with her boyfriend, Crush, and a photo of their hands forming a heart together in front of their drinks.
On top of that, fans also found out that Joy follows some of her fan accounts on her private Instagram, and that she has also shared thank you photos of some gifts she received from fans.
The incident has prompted many fans to defend Joy’s privacy and call for the photos to be removed.
Despite the dire circumstances in which fans discovered the photos, many praised Joy for being sweet.
One fan commented, “I’m sure Joy is baffled that her private account has been hacked and leaked everywhere … but I have to say, I’m quite surprised to see how clean her private account is for an idol.”
Another fan commented: “[Joy’s] Private account is so pure and it’s so nice to see how many people I was following. “
Despite that, the fact remains that your privacy was violated. While it was a relief that Joy’s private content did not generate a major controversy, netizens continue to support Joy, urging others to respect her privacy and avoid posting or sharing the leaked images.
Earlier this year, Super Junior’s Leeteuk, iKON, and BTS also suffered hacks on their official social media accounts.
