Black Nut just recently received his court sentence for defaming KittiB with sexual remarks in his song Too Real.

On January 10, 2019, KST, the Seoul Central District Court sentenced him to two years of probation with the possibility of a six-month prison sentence if he commits a repeat offense during his probationary period. He was also ordered to perform 160 hours of community service.

The court sentence Black Nut received comes full circle when KittB initially sued him back in June of 2017. KittiB claims Black Nut made sexual remarks about her in his song Too Real. She also added charges that Black Nut explicitly insulted her while performing a total of four times in 2016 to 2017. She even had a second complaint of contempt which was eventually merged with the existing lawsuit.

About seven months later, Black Nut was formally indicted for defamation against KittiB by the Seoul Central Prosecutor’s Office. Later on in October of 2018, the prosecution demanded Black Nut serves one year of prison and two years of probation.

Black Nut shows no remorse for his actions?

Legally, Black Nut has pleaded not guilty to demeaning or insulting KittiB. It should also be noted that the possibility of an appeal remains. However, what is more peculiar his Black Nut’s demeanor towards KittiB throughout the process. Apparently, he has “no remorse” for what he’s done.

“The defendant persistently mocked the victim and inflicted additional damage. We have not seen any remorse or regret in the course of the trial. Despite considering the characteristics of the hip hop genre, the vulgarity [of his expressions] and sexual insults posted on social media constitute contempt.”

Black Nut and his lawyers will decide whether to appeal or not after reviewing the reasons and legal principles of the ruling detail.
