Cierra Nichols Sends BLACKPINK’s Lisa A Formal Apology After Accusing Lisa Of Stealing Her Choreography

The dancer apologized to Lisa, YG Entertainment, and everyone else affected by the accusations:

Cierra Nichols, a choreographer who recently accused BLACKPINK‘s Lisa of plagiarism after seeing Lisa’s latest dance video to QUIN and 6LACK‘s “Mushroom Chocolate”, has come forward to apologize to Lisa and everyone else who was affected by the accusation.

The month prior to the release of Lisa’s video, Cierra had dropped her own dance video to “Mushroom Chocolate”. After seeing Lisa’s dance, Cierra claimed her choreography had been used for the video writing on her Instagram stories, “In today’s episode of ‘Let’s Steal from Black People’ a Korean singer gets 7.8 million views in a day using most of your choreography. Love that for us.”

After Cierra’s post, many fans were left stunned by the accusations and came to Lisa’s defense showing the differences in the choreographies and pointing out that Lisa hadn’t been the one to create the dance in the first place.

Now Cierra has issued an official apology to Lisa, her choreographer, YG Entertainment, and everyone else who was affected by her accusations after she took some time to seriously compare the two videos.

She started off her apology on Instagram confessing that she had made the accusations while she was feeling emotionally charged. Cierra further clarified that she didn’t want to use that as an excuse and would take full responsibility for the aftermath of the situation.

Hello everyone, I want to take the time to clarify recent comments I made that have affected more than myself. First, I apologize to everyone who has been directly affected by this; Lisa of BlackPink, YG Entertainment, Chesir and Bloc Talent Agency. My recent comments in no way represent them and who they are as an entity.

Being an artist, I feel very deeply for my craft which led me to say things I felt compassionate about, but most certainly could have been better delivered and should not have been delivered when I was emotionally charged and without serious thought put forth before doing so. At this point, I take great responsibility for the aftermath.

Additionally, Cierra revealed how she would take this particular experience and apply it to the future.

Considering the times we are in and even more so after; I, nor anyone, should make hateful comments, threats, or harrass anyone. This was a lesson to be mindful and a reminder to respect my fellow persons’ physical and mental well being. I’ve learned a great amount from this experience and that grace and humility is always the answer.

After serious comparison, I will state that there were some similarities in regards to the movement but will say for the record that it was not copied by the choreographer or Lisa the artist. With love, Cierra Nichols.
