The controversy over Hwayoung being kicked out of T-ara and allegations of bullying within the group has caused them to rapidly lose support.
An online petition has been created titled "Petition for the Disbanding of T-ara" which demands that the group be disbanded. "As a group who is taking the lead in the spread of bullying, a big social problem, we ask for the disbanding of this group. It seems the time has come for T-ara to face the verdict of the public. Please dissolve this group," the petition states.
The petition has amassed nearly 100,000 signatures from netizens.
T-ara's largest online fan community, t-arafan.com, is being shut down. While the site's creator did not give a reason for the sudden end of the site, many attribute it to the scandals the group has faced this year.
t-arafan.com was the largest fansite for T-ara with over 4 million visitors. It will official cease operations on August 15th.
As many people who were once fans of T-ara stop supporting the group, numerous amounts of people are demanding to know the truth about why Hwayoung was kicked out of the group. "T-Jinyo", an online cafe demanding the truth about the controversy, has gained nearly 200,000 users. While the site is used for netizens to demand the truth, many are also using it to gain further support of T-ara's disbandment and have its members removed from shows.
