  • We held it in even though you’ve been neglecting her since 2021. We can’t hold back anymore.
  • Don’t stay silent about the cyber witch-hunt, malicious rumors, and comments any longer, Starship.
  • Did Starship request for the video about her injury to be taken down? Stop taking us for fools and making us trust you less.
  • Although you don’t post anything about legal actions, you guys immediately delete anything that insults Starship. Just who’s management are you?
  • Starship only serves to block their artists’ paths. Repay them with the appropriate support and actions.
