#STAYS Trends On Twitter As Saudi Arabian Stray Kids Fans Reportedly Go Missing After A Postponed Concert

K-Pop Twitter has banded together to help with the ongoing situation.

Claims of Stray Kids’ fans being kidnapped have been subsequently revealed to be false.

Concerning news about the upcoming Stray Kids concert in Saudi Arabia has started to take over Twitter regarding the boy group’s fans.

On January 14, Stray Kids was scheduled to perform in the Riyadh Season, Saudi Arabia’s largest music festival. The concert, however, was postponed due to inclement weather—and it was postponed after all of Stray Kids’ fans had already filled up the stadium.

According to a STAY (Stray Kids fans) online discussion forum, it was following the postponement of the concert that dozens of fans began to go missing due to random kidnappings.

Because many of the fans flew to Riyadh specifically for the concert, they were met with “transportation” issues after the concert had been postponed. As these fans tried to figure out their suddenly changed circumstances, it was reported that many of the STAYs went “missing.”
