A fan of Wanna One’s Yoon Jisung has been criticized by netizens and Wannables for rude behavior towards a LOONA member at the 2018 MAMA in Korea.
At the end of the event, a fan had thrown a flower towards LOONA’s Hyunjin, who excitedly picked up the gift thinking it was hers. As soon as she picked it up, however, the fan who threw it repeatedly screamed, “(It’s for) Yoon Jisung!” Feeling uncomfortable and not knowing what to do, she later handed the flower over to Jinsoul.

The fan who threw the flower has been heavily criticized for being rude and embarrassing the rookie girl group.
How rude and shameless can a person be? Throwing flowers to another idol then asking them to give them to someone else. It's awkward and embarrassing. Hope this person fell in a ditch on their way home.

Furthermore, once the issue began to spread, Wannables have caused more friction by shifting the blame from Wannables specifically to Yoon Jisung fans, claiming that they have not “accepted Yoon Jisung as a member”.
“Please write #YoonJisungFan_Apologize, not #Wannable_Apologize. We Wannables are the most upset. We haven’t accepted a member like Yoon Jisung.”

“Yoon Jisung is not a member of Wanna One. Please do not use #Wannable_Apologize.”
The fan who threw the flower has since issued several apologies including multiple handwritten apologies to LOONA, Orbits and fellow Yoon Jisung fans for her behavior and pleaded not to criticize her artist for her behavior.
