Is it just me, or did DSP just made everything difficult by releasing an official statement?

They didn't really clear anything for HJ, but cleared their names on it. The CEO was there to brag that he's with HJ. They're cleansing their names saying that it's purely coincidental when in fact the CEO really did want to go there, with the intention that having HJ will give him much attention.
