JYP Entertainment’s official webpage was hacked by a group calling itself Anonymous Taiwan on Saturday. The website continues to be down from the attack.

Tzuyu, 16, a member of JYP’s rookie girl group Twice, was all over the news after she waved a Tawainese flag during a show. Despite an official apology from JYP, she faced harsh criticism from many Chinese.

In the end, her agency uploaded a video of Tzuyu apologizing to the Chinese public, saying, “There is only one China. I do not support the independence of Taiwan.” However, this time the apology angered many Taiwanese.

Many assumed that her agency forced her to film the” dishonorable apology.” The hackers retaliated by attacking JYP’s website.

Anonymous Taiwan warned that they would hack the website again if JYP does not clarify the issue.
