Online trollers are at it again as after famous K-pop star Sulli was reported dead on Monday at her residence, they have found another victim to their bullying -- her ex-boyfriend, Choiza. 

Sulli who was a part of K-pop girl band f(x) was said to have become victim to online bullying and hate as she was reported to have been found dead by her manager who alerted the police. Now, the online trollers have started attacking her former boyfriend, claiming that he might have been one of the reasons for her depression that led to her death. 

Her former boyfriend who is a rapper from hip-hop band Dynamic Duo had his social media profile flooded with online hate. There haven’t been clear reasoning behind the hate but trollers have apparently held him responsible for it somehow. 

Some even wrote that they wished that he would "die in a car crash" and that he was hated "more than the cyberbullies." Meanwhile, some have pointed out that cyberbullies must "wake up and stop their groundless, childish actions."

Choiza and Sulli split in 2017 after they admitted being together following a paparazzi report in 2014.

Meanwhile, Sulli suffered from depression, said police and added that they are working on the assumption that it was likely a suicide. However, no note was recovered during the investigations. 

Sulli, whose real name was Choi Jin-ri began her career as a child actor in 2005 and shot to fame as one of the members of the K-pop girl band f(x). However, the star paused working until 2014 when she complained of severe cyber-bullying.
