Although boygroup W.A.O debuted only on April 22, 2021, just a mere few days later, their social media account was suspended due to an overwhelming number of reports. According to fans, W.A.O’s official Twitter account faced an influx of malicious comments, resulting in the account being mass-reported and eventually taken down.
The boy group had been on the receiving end of hate, as malicious netizens felt that the boys did not meet the standards of beauty for idols. Their debut profile tweet received an outpour of hate and malicious comments. One netizen commented, “Is this for real? The more irrelevant the company is, the more so they cannot be like this.”
Fans were hoping that people will help in getting their account back by filing an appeal to Twitter.
