Durex Korea apologizes for congratulating Girls Generation Taeyeon and EXO Baekhyun's relationship before it is confirmed

The Twitter account of condom company Durex Korea first reacted to the Taeyeon and Baekhyun dating scandal with a tweet of congratulations.
They wrote (later deleted), "Korean media Dispatch disclosed a dating scandal between Taeyeon and Baekhyun of SM's two representative idol groups, Girls' Generation and EXO. Congratulations to their love!  We Durex will support them!!"
Although the alleged problem with this tweet is that the agency had yet to confirm their relationship, people can probably speculate it is more than that...  Of course, this resulted in backlash from fans, so the Durex Korea Twitter account tweeted again to relay their apologies.
The tweet read, "We wrote a post supporting Taeyeon and Baekhyun's love.  As idols getting public attention, it would not be easy to love.  Durex supports all kinds of love. However, we found out that this support could greatly hurt the fans.  We apologize."
