On 7 November 2020, a video was uploaded onto Twitter. The video was taken by someone that was in the same class as THE BOYZ‘s Eric at School Of Performing Arts (SOPA). It was then reuploaded onto social media by a fan.


In the video, Eric can be seen signing promotional albums for his classmates. One classmate had called out “Do you not want to succeed? You should work hard then.”

Many fans and non-fans alike have expressed their anger at the matter, given that Eric continued to sign albums without responding. What angered them more was that the rest of the classmates laughed along, with no one speaking out on Eric’s behalf.

I’m so pissed off. Why are they laughing along? If it was me I’d be crying.

These f*ckers are the ones that will be going around saying their high school friends with him. It’s f*cked up.

Neither Eric nor his agency has spoken up on the matter. Meanwhile, THE BOYZ recently made a comeback through “The Stealer”. Check it out below!
