Fake K-Pop Fancams
Fake K-pop Fancams ( also called the "Fancam Situation" ) are videos shared on Twitter and Instagram pretending to be a k-pop fancam video but actually show either a screamer or disturbing imagery including but not limited to murder, torture, self-harm and suicide.
This phenomenon appeared at the end of May 2020. Many k-pop stans have found red flags to identify the members of groups from where it originated such as keywords ("slit" or "slitz") and symbols.
The twitter account @fancamsituation and the #stopusingfancamsasbait hashtag were created to spread awareness and who to block.
Chainmail-like rumors were made:
