tbh all I can think about right now is how mistreated Bom was. YG deadass hung her out to dry. Her whole scandal stemmed from the stigma of mental health. He repeatedly failed to provide her with the support and help she needed. You can’t convince me the same thing didn’t happen with Taehyun.
I want to know what it is like in the YG building right now.
I want to know if the trainees are being told to keep going even though they’ve seen two examples today of how YG treats the artists that he debuts.
I want to know if Black Pink are sad, scared, upset, whatever to actually be 2NE1 2.0 because now their seniors aren’t there. Or whether they think YG will treat them the same. Or whether they are indifferent, happy to be *the* girl group from YG.
I want to know if iKon even knew what was going on seeing as they were busy with Japan promotions. Or whether they feel that could have been them if they were the winners of W.I.N. Or whether they are just upset, broken, scared what’s going to happen to them now seeing as they seem to have just been shipped of to Japan.
I want to know if Lee Hi and AKMU wonder what will happen to them. Or whether they will ever make a comeback.
I want to know if YG trainees and idols are being told not to mention it, to keep quiet and pretend it never happened.
I want to know if 2NE1 are happy, if this is what they wanted or if YG has just betrayed one of the greatest girl groups of all time.
I want to know if Winner are happy or if they’re just watching with no say as to what is happening as YG takes their dreams and shatters them.
I want to know if Taehyun is just okay.
And most of all, I want to know what the fuck is going on in YG’s head. I want to know if he realises he is murdering talent, wasting chances. I want to know why the fuck he thinks any of this is okay.
And I wasn’t even a fan of 2NE1, Winner or YG in general. I just want to know what the fuck is going on.
Seriously tho fuck anyone who still belives in that “YG Family” shit and tries to defend “Papa YG” just the name suckens me, that man trampled on and emotionally abused his artists, he ruined any hope of a career they had, he took their hard work and dreams and ripped them into shreds.
