On December 28th, 2020, Jisoo's fans raged all over Twitter. Why did they do so? The uproar began due to a platform called 'TC Candler'. Every year they do a '100 Most Beautiful Faces of the Year' ranking. What went wrong this time?
They plastered a racist joke in Jisoo's picture! Can you believe it? Racism is not a light matter or something to be joked about! How can fans let them get away with such a discriminatory remark?
'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?
Jisoo's fans were furious and asked TC Candler to delete the picture from their vast platform. They also talked about how she always does her best to improve her English. The global star does it for the ease of communicating with her fans. You can read all about it here!
Do you think the anger from her fan base is valid?
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.
