We were told that the Koreans are a peaceful people, and crime here is not the lowest in the world. But look what happened in Pyeongchang….
Meet: Kim Butene, a canadian athlete, playing in short track. And here on a distance of 500 meters, she won bronze in the Olympics. Moreover, it so happened that the Butene finished fourth, but the medal she got after the mistress of the competition Choi Min-Chun was disqualified, reports Rus.Media.
And that’s when the competition results were announced, thousands of fans from South Korea began to insult Butene in social networks.
For example, she got the message: “Congratulations on a dirty medal.” And she wrote: “Canada, you taught Kim Butene to cheat”. And even: “If I find you, you die.” And so on. Many of the reports were added to the smiley with a knife.
In the end, Butene decided to close access to their pages in the “Twitter” and “Instagram”. The international Olympic Committee has called the incident a “very sad event”. But said that is not able to control the social network — here from the IOC does not depend on anything.
