'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. They are actively shaming a Korean person for not being good at English! Fans on Twitter trended ‘#ApologizeToJisoo’.
