Anti-fans are everywhere and they can say/write some of the meanest things to our favorite idols. Most of the idols will just ignore these messages, but KARA’s Gyuri has decided to respond on twitter with a story about the Buddha.
On July 15th (KST), Gyuri (@gyuri88) tweeted a series of messages to her anti-fans:
I can’t understand what goes on in the heads of people who throw a mention at me, and put words that they know I would dislike just for fun. They say it’s just a joke, but they never think twice about what it feels like on the receiving end, are their thoughts that immature? What kind of response is it that they want to see from me?
Religion is not unrelated to today’s story – this happened when the Buddha was alive. One day, a gangster man went to the Buddha and cursed at him. But [the Buddha] seemed to not mind.
Instead he continued, ‘Whenever this customer came, the server would give the customer food… if the customer doesn’t accept it, who does it belong to?’ The man replied, ‘Of course, it’s mine again.’
Then the Buddha spoke softly, ‘In the same way, you hurl insults at me, but I don’t receive them. They still remain with you.’ The man knelt down and prayed to the Buddha.
She ended the tweets with a message to those anti-fans, saying:
If I say or write other negative things … it makes me carry hearts filled with these unhappy moments; instead of happiness, I would absorb the misery and waste my time with such people. There is someone who probably had an unhappy time today, but for me, I lived my life to the fullest even today, so I’m going to take a deep rest!
I will give back in double to my family and those that have faith and love for me. In the spirit of sharing good things with others hehe we did well today too good night!
Good for you, Gyuri. I’m glad that she had the strength and courage to respond in such a mature manner.
What do you think of Gyuri’s response to her anti-fans?
