I woke up to “YG Stop Sabotaging Lisa” trending on Twitter today. The alleged mismanagement of the Blackpink superstar from Thailand has been a topic of controversy for quite a while. Fans are officially tired of it.
Back in 2010, Lisa auditioned for YG Entertainment in Thailand at the age of 13. Out of 4,000 others, she was the only one chosen by the South Korean entertainment company. Yang Hyun-suk, CEO of YG, officially offered young Lisa a position as a trainee.
At 14, Lisa packed her bags and moved to Korea to become YG’s first non-ethnically Korean artist to join the company. Her training lasted 5 years before she officially made her debut as a member of Blackpink in 2016.
On February 2, 2021, #RespectLisa trended all over the internet after anti-fans racially abused Lisa. These comments mainly came from group chats in China and Turkey. They were based on her appearance and the fact that she is from Thailand…which is just plain ignorant. I lived in Thailand. It is a beautiful country and the people are lovely and attractive.
Leaked messages from the group chats called her ugly because she has dark skin, they said she looks like a man and even called her a “ladyboy” which is what Transgender people are labeled as in Thailand.
Real BLINKs came to her rescue with the hashtag, #RespectLisa.
The Korean pop industry is no stranger to scandal and controversy. Everything from sex slavery, prostitution, drug rings, assault, rape, and a string of suicides. Some really disturbing stuff. For some specific examples, watch this video:
YG is now being accused of sabotaging Lisa’s career in a variety of ways. They are making it look like simple mismanagement, but there seems to be a lot more to it.
#YGStopSabotagingLisa started trending on Twitter this morning. BLINKs are DONE with YG. Here are some examples.
Intentionally sabotaging her style. It is well-known that YG and other entertainment companies control everything their artists say, do, and wear.
Intentionally sabotaging her relationships with brands she is affiliated with.
Intentionally not providing security for her while other members are surrounded by bodyguards.
Intentionally leaving her out of Blackpink promotional materials.
In my opinion, it is clear that something fishy is going on with YG. In fact, it couldn’t be more obvious. If you are a Blackpink and Lisa fan, show her some love. #ygstopsabotaginglisa.
Lisa’s first solo album will be released soon and YG has not promoted it at all. Here’s her first single, Say So.
Let me know what you think in the comments, and show your support for Lisa!
