'Her English is a pity', the supposed-to-be funny remark was printed in gold. 

The remark originated from a joke that Jisoo made during Blackpink's reality show. However, in this context, it just sounds extremely racist. Don't you think? They are actively shaming a Korean person for not being good at English! Fans on Twitter trended ‘#ApologizeToJisoo’ within minutes and constantly tagged the official account in their tweets.

The hashtag trended for 16 hours in the 'Worldwide' category. Fans brought awareness to the issue and why it had been wrong. What was the demand by her fans?

Conclusion

Jisoo for Harper's Bazaar

In my opinion, people need to stop making fun of those who struggle with speaking English. It is not Jisoo's mother tongue! She shouldn't have to be forced to excel in it! Fans like me appreciate the fact that the star is doing her best to overcome a language barrier.

She deserves all the respect for being so hardworking. In my opinion they should delete the post and issue an apology! Do you think TC Candler should delete the post? Comment below.
