EXO‘s Baekhyun has received criticism after making comments about a fan’s depression.

When a fan came up to him during a fansign and revealed to him that she was taking medication for her depression, he suggested her to stop taking medication and find a healthier solution.

However, depression is actually a clinical diagnosis, where the chemical imbalance of the brain causes the illness. People who read what he had told her were extremely upset that he would advise her to stop taking medication and criticized him for being both insensitive and potentially dangerous. However, the fan emphasized that Baekhyun meant no harm and is actually a big source of her strength in fighting her depression.

DO YOU THINK HIS COMMENT WAS INSENSITIVE? OR, WAS HE TRYING TO HELP?
