Now it’s rare for netizens to side with an EXO member, but netizens came across a series of pictures that really pissed them off.
The pictures show Tao buying medicine from a pharmacy… alone. No manager or support staff there to help him.
He’s walking around in crutches, struggling to get from place to place.
It’s really sad to see Tao like this.
We hope he gets better soon, and that SM Entertainment sticks a manager with him at all times.
And I certainly hope that Tao isn’t holding his wallet out in the open.
If some hooligan sees a crippled person hold their wallet out in the open like that, they’ll rob them and jet off.
Here are netizen’s comments about Tao’s circumstances, translated by NetizenBuzz:
“What the ㅠㅠㅠㅠ Why isn’t anyone accompanying him?”
“Hul… why did they let him go out on his own?”
“What if he met a sasaeng or some weird person, what did they expect him to do on his own? ㅠㅠㅠ”
“He’s in that condition and he’s going out alone? ㅠㅠㅠㅠ”
“SM, is this a joke? Him going around alone even in a healthy state is dangerous enough but they let an injured kid out like this!!”
“Being alone when you’re sick or hurt is seriously the worst… especially when you’re far away from home like he is ㅠㅠㅠ”
“Not even his manager is with him, he’s alone ㅠㅠㅠ”
“Should’ve at least stuck on a manager on him, it would’ve been so dangerous if a sasaeng spotted him”
“This scary… SM, please manage your artists better.”
“What is SM doing while their own artist is injured like this? How can they let him out alone? Stop being so greedy and consider their health for a second. I honestly hope EXO never goes on IAC again.”
“Shouldn’t someone be helping him? He’s on crutches for crying out loud.”
