Recently, an Indian news channel called News NationTV has come under fire for their depiction of BLACKPINK on national TV.
There’s an ongoing dispute between India and China, and during a segment scrutinizing the Chinese government, a clip of BLACKPINK’s members dancing during a live performance was played. The commentary of the clip was objectifying, and they were even labeled “Chinese strippers”.
The members of BLACKPINK, obviously, are neither Chinese nor strippers, and both Indian and international BLINKs immediately began demanding an apology from the company for spreading such defamatory words.
This is so Shameful. You all broadcast anything without proper data..You can’t defame anyone like this with all faulse & irrelevant statements..You need to Apologize.@NewsNationTV #ApologizeNewsNation #ShameOnYouNewsNation https://t.co/I5XAAr486Y

BLACKPINK has come under fire recently for disrespecting the Indian god Ganesha in their “How You Like That” music video, but YG Entertainment has since removed the deity from the video. Regardless, the inclusion of Ganesha wasn’t the members’ idea, and they don’t at all deserve to be called “Chinese strippers” for their unintentional disrespect.
1. BLACKPINK is South Korean
2. How can you call someone str*pper on national news channel
3. STOP OBJECTING WOMEN
4. STOP SPREADING FAKE NEWS. WE INDIANS ARE TIRED OF YOU

Hopefully News NationTV will soon issue an apology for their lack of research and insulting comments.
