Netease Entertainment reported on April 10 that IU, a Korean female artist, recently donated 100 million won (about 587,000 yuan) to children affected by forest fires in Jiangyuan Road, but this was criticized by some netizens for ulterior motives. Today, public welfare organizations receiving IU donations voiced their clarification for IU.
Internet users accusing IU said that every time IU donated money to a specific public welfare organization, and most of the people affected by the forest fire in Jiangyuan were the elderly. IU donated 100 million won to a specific institution in the name of helping children, which made people wonder if there was any cats weariness behind it. This netizens speech spread quickly through major social networking websites. This morning, a public welfare organization accepting IU donations took place to clarify for IU.
The head of the public welfare organization said that after the forest fire in Jiangyuan Road, many people, including IU, actively launched activities to help the victims. The false rumors on the Internet can not help the victims, but will affect the timely help of the victims. Therefore, I hope that the netizens will stop spreading unfounded rumors.
