Ever since Tao’s dad wrote an emotional letter on Weibo, leading to reports that Tao will be leaving EXO, fans have been waiting for an official statement from the artist himself.
On April 26th, Tao finally broke his silence and posted a short message on Weibo. The simple post reads, “Sorry. Grateful.”
The exact meaning of the post is unknown; however, fans are speculating that Tao is either apologizing for making the fans worry over the past few days, or that he is actually going to leave EXO and thus is apologetic.
Earlier, SM Entertainment confirmed that there has been an ongoing dispute, and EXO members Xiumin and Lay deleted their Instagram account and posts, respectively, amid speculations of Tao’s departure.
Red (Lay reblogs and comments): I don’t care who you are but don’t bash my family don’t touch my fans they are everything that is precious to me in life
Blue (Lay’s mom’s weibo acct):That weibo user sweeet朦胧朦胧月光, I don’t know how you at such a young age can be so venomous, have such a twisted mind, I sympathize with your parents, and also send the blessings which you have sent me, back to your whole family! Anyone can curse at people, but cursing at you makes my mouth dirty!
Blue #1 : Thank you all for your protection! For us, fans’ existence is like family! Thank you!
Blue #2 : To avoid worrying, it’s best to Weibo less! When it’s clean, I will return to play with you all! Thanks!
