    The Stalking of Korean Hip Hop Superstar Daniel Lee

    I mentioned in my music post (http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/sho...l=1#post640141) about Epik High, a hip-hop group in Korea. I also mention that one of its members, Tablo graduated from Stanford.

    What I didn't tell you, however, that Tablo went through what some here in the U.S. would consider unfathomable — an Internet group that tried to convince the world that this young man did not have a degree from Stanford. This smear campaign would lead to death threats and nearly destroyed this young man's musical career. This hell went on for more than a year, even after Tablo (known as Dan Lee) showed transcripts and even filmed a television special of him visiting Stanford.

    Anyway, I bring it up because Wired had an interesting piece on the subject today:

    This story is an extreme example of how when you are famous —everyone is on you and will set all sorts of claims for and against you. It explains a lot why Yuna Kim felt so pressured in competitions.
