Blackpink member Lisa, once again trended on the internet, but for wrong reasons. The global superstar was attacked by racist and hatred views by some users, screenshots of which sparked outrage online. Soon, #RespectLisa, #SayNoToRacism and #StopRacism hashtags took over Twitter with Lilles and Blinks addressing the issue. The leaked messages from a group chat reveal immensely hateful, mean and racist comments towards Lisa, discrediting her skill and hard work and demeaning her success. It did not only end on Lisa, but even dehumanised Thai people and Thailand in general.
Blackpink recently hosted their first-ever virtual live concert ‘The Show,’ which proved to be a massive success. The controversy started when screenshots of private group chats showing comments against Lisa went viral on Twitter. The rapper has often been dragged into controversial stands, but the latest hateful remarks show how K-Pop celebrities become victims of racism. Lisa was allegedly attacked for her home country Thailand and several offensive comments.
K-Pop fandoms, Blinks and Lillies shared the snapshots of the chats, condemning such heinous acts and claiming that Lisa deserves better than these racist and hateful remarks.

Lisa is one of the most popular K-Pop singers with massive followers. This is not the first time, Lisa has faced such hateful remarks. Because she is the only non-Korean member of Blackpink, people have made racist comments in the past as well.
