Thailand’s entertainment company GMM Grammy on Thursday, June 25 filed reports against social media users who post malicious comments against their artists, Bright Vachirawit and Gun Atthaphan.
Based on the statement issued by the company, they have sent their lawyers at the Crime Suppression Division on Technology Crimes.
Both Vachirawit and Attaphan have been in the news lately after postings of their past issues started going viral again, causing stress and defamation against their personal lives.
Bright’s issues have been dealth accordingly in the past, and had apologized since then. However, with the increasing popularity of the Thai actor due to his recent hit-series “2gether: The series”, some of these issues have resurfaced once again.
A few days ago, Bright again, issued an apology and stated that he “may not be the perfect role model”, but he learned from his mistakes and is trying to continue improving as a person. He also thanked those who continue to give him the opportunity to become better.
Meanwhile, Gun in a Twitter post stated that when he started receiving threats, he already informed his GMMTv management and the company’s PR even filed a report at the police station.
Bright and Gun are not the only GMM artists to be targeted by malicious social media posts. Krist Perawat, Singto Prechaya and New Thitipoom also were given the chance to issue their apologies for past issues that have been brought up again.
Representatives from their management stated that they will not take lightly those who will continue to spread malicious comments against their artists, and appropriate charges will be filed against them.
Incidentally, Bright and his partner Win Metawin will have their first-ever Philippine media conference tomorrow in anticipation for the local airing of their hit-series.
