Jennie Stood Up For Lisa And Protected Her, After Cruel Netizens Insulted and Shamed Her

This one’s a tear-jerker.

BLACKPINK began their 2019 World Tour with KIA [In Your Area] in Lisa‘s hometown, Bangkok, Thailand. It wasn’t all fun and games, though, as Lisa’s fellow members took the stage and seemed to address the controversy surrounding her appearance at the 2018 year end awards.

Jennie went on stage in front of BLACKPINK’s Thai fans and told them that they should “be proud of Lisa,” saying:

Lisa is really strong and positive… We’ll take good care of her.

—Jennie

Some BLINK believed that Jennie’s comments were in reference to negative comments about Lisa’s appearance at the 2018 Golden Disk Awards. The controversy surrounding the comments became so widespread that they even made it to the news in Thailand.

BLACKPINK Lisa’s Shocking ‘off the Shoulder’

With makeup on, she looks like a Russian elf girl… If she dyes her hair black and washes off her makeup, she’s nothing but a Thai girl…

In response, fans expressed their rage at how people were looking down on her appearance as well as her nationality.

Fans fought back by starting the “#RESPECT_LISA” campaign and even had heated discussions with the haters on Lisa’s Instagram account.

Jennie must have been worried about Lisa, who was going through a rough time in the midst of her busy schedule.

Jennie’s sincere and heartfelt words of comfort touched the BLACKPINK fans all over the world.
