BP RaNia‘s Alex thought she had been removed from the group without notice and tweets her worries to her fans.
On April 1, BP RaNia’s Alex tweeted that she was afraid she might have been removed from the group without being told. She was concerned but was still skeptical as it was April Fool’s Day and so she had to ask her followers if Koreans celebrated April Fool’s day.
“I heard the label tweeted that I’m out of the group… can someone put me in the loop? Do they celebrate April Fools in Korea?”

“Did I get kicked out of my group for real or for April Fools? #meanestprankeverifitsaprank“

These tweets have since been deleted after she clarified with her company that the earlier tweets made by “the label” had in fact been posted by a fake account who had ended up fooling everyone.
Said account had been set up to look almost exactly like her label’s official account, which explains how they managed to trick Alex. She posted an update as well to let her followers know about the prank.
