Their support comes a day after K-Pop fans were appreciated for working in harmony to flood racist hashtags on Twitter with fancams to keep any messages not in accordance with Black Lives Matter from spreading online.
Based on a statement from Newsis, BTS is also making a donation to Black Lives Matter groups
According to a statement from BigHit (Their entertainment label) which was translated through Google Translate ;
“We are in the process of making a donation. Since we are still in the process of sending money, we are still unable to reveal the donor and the amount of money.”
