Fans of WINNER were shocked by the ‘insensitive’ removal of Nam Tae Hyun from the group’s social media pages.
The departure of the group’s maknae came as a shock to everyone, but fans are angry after what happened next.
Just days after news broke that the singer would be leaving the group after suffering with mental health issues, WINNER’s Facebook page, Youtube channel, and website have updated their official images, using photos from the group’s debut 2014 S/S shoot – and having simply edited out Nam Taehyun.
Fans have argued that it is disrespectful that rather than new photos of the group being taken, YG decided to simply edit Tae Hyun out of old images.
Check out some of the reactions below!
Taehyun getting edited out of the winner banner reminds me of how a person getting eliminated on America top model would fade off
