BLACKPINK Lisa Only Beautiful With Makeup And Average Thai Without It? GOT7 BamBam Responds
If what you read in the title has triggered you to some degree, it has many BLACKPINK fans in an angry state at the moment.
Just recently, BLACKPINK member Lisa has been receiving some hurtful comments from netizens. The comments stated that she only looked like an idol when she dyed her hair in bright colors with Korean style makeup, while she looked like an average Thai girl when she dyed her hair in a darker tone and had less makeup on. The comments described her as a Russian elf when they approved and a dark Thai girl when they didn’t approve.
As you can see, the comments had racist nuances towards Thai people and it was also disrespectful towards Lisa’s appearance as well.
Below is how BLACKPINK fans have been reacting.
She doesn’t at all deserve all these hatred, she came to your country at such a young age and learned and respected your language and cultures since then. Try to respect her too! That’s truly horrible that still many people aren’t out of shits like racism.#RespectLisa pic.twitter.com/EiSjSHcEmC

And fellow Thai K-Pop idol BamBam of JYP Entertainment idol group GOT7 recently talked about it the issue as well.
“Yes, I heard about the recent incident. Because we’re good friends, I’ve already talked about it with her. But the thing is, this whole thing was started by just a small group of people and I highly doubt it will really achieve its purpose of trying to bring down Lisa. She has countless numbers of people who instead care about her and show support.”
Stfu bambam was so ready to fight those haters if lisa told him she’s not fine, u dont mess up with his best friend u fucker!!!
