Fans are livid after video clips and accounts surfaced online that detailed the measures fellow fans go through to invade MONSTA X’s privacy.
The group is currently in the United States for their world tour, The Connect.
Fans have become angry about clips of fellow fans waiting outside their hotel, basically stalking them and, at one point, reaching out to claim a hug from Hyungwon were posted online.
So no one gonna talk about how that girl further violated hyungwon’s personal space https://t.co/Qk6XjNKgKx

People who stalk Monsta X, touch them without their permission, invade their privacy and still have the guts to call themselves monbebes can choke. This is saesang not monbebe behaviour. pic.twitter.com/LdvoQoNTB1

There have been accounts that the members were also followed during their rest days, leading fans to post detailed accounts about basic etiquette.
Jooheon was trying to have some family time, Hyungwon got hugged randomly and I know you might stan them, but, think about it. We are strangers to them and we are just fans. Plus they got stalked to their hotels tf.

RTing this again for LA Monbebe. Respect their personal space.
Don’t mob them.
Don’t hug them if you didn’t ask & they didn’t approve.
Don’t stalk them either, that’s really creepy.#MonstaXInLosAngeles #MonstaxInLA https://t.co/Slg5lnnpzR

Monbebes have found these invasions of privacy especially egregious considering the amount and level of fan service MONSTA X already provided at their official concert… _including_ a hi-touch event!
Most of the story is in the photos but my son got to meet/held by Hyungwon. He is the happiest as can be right now. I'm so glad he got this chance to fulfill his wish. Thank you for this memory!😊💕👩👦 @OfficialMonstaX #monstaxindallas #MONSTAX2NDWORLDTOUR #MONSTA_X pic.twitter.com/ZyMh9qySYB

The issue further came to light after news of Nam Joo Hyuk being inappropriately touched at a recent fancon was brought by the Korean media.
As MONSTA X continues their tour many are hoping that the outrage will have been enough to warn fellow fans coming to see them.
