gIn breaking news on December 10th and 13th, two male actors had their nude videos leaked online. With the videos, it was also revealed that another male idol and a female trainer also had their videos leaked.
Rumors began to immediately emerge that other idols also had leaked nude videos that were floating around on the internet. GOT7’s Jackson immediately became the center of this news, with posts quickly being spread on social media and especially amongst international fans on Twitter.

These tweets contained no source and had no evidence to back their claims, however, fans began spreading the misinformation online quickly. It was revealed in reports that the idol who also had his video leaked was 30-years-old. Jackson is not 30.

Comments included disbelief from Netizens as well, with one saying, “OP is messing around by posting this. The original article said it was 3 or 4 people. Why is this list growing? Half of the list is a fake.”
