Spotify is being blamed for the dispute that happened between the fans of Blackpink and the fans of BTS. Spotify has recently dropped the year-ender lists of the Blackpinks.
Lisa is accredited with the title of the Most Streamed K-Pop Soloist of 2022. Instagram and Twitter platforms are surfacing with “apologize to Lisa” hashtags. Due to the huge blunder on Spotify’s part, she had to undergo social media shaming and harassment.
What Exactly Did Spotify Do?
Spotify recently titled the South Korean singer and BTS member, Jung Kook, the Most Streamed K-Pop Soloist of 2022. This was initially accepted and celebrated by fans worldwide, considering the top trending songs that he had released in 2022 including the Dreamers! , the 2022 Qatar FIFA World Cup song.
Later Spotify altered its title and announced Lisa as the artist who received the title. This happened because Spotify failed in properly merge their tags which caused the BTS fan army to title-shame, Lisa. She was trolled and shamed virtually for being accredited with the title.
Spotify apologized by taking to Twitter and tweeting in their official hand that their mistake has been corrected and that they would join the BTS fans in celebrating the achievements of the singer-boy band.
While the fans of the band Blackpink and the fans of the rapper Lisa took it to Twitter and called out Spotify. They announced their unanimous support for the female rapper.
Blackpink fans popularly known as “Blinks” despised the actions of the music streaming platform.
One blink tweeted that the platform’s careless actions have made a woman undergo slut shaming, body shaming, and the victim of xenophobic comments. And called out Spotify for not acknowledging Lisa in their tweet. It would have been fairer, they think.
Another fellow blink tweeted that the crime would be further engaged by giving in to cyberbullying. The tweet urged Spotify to be firm and confident as a music platform while explaining music genres rather than giving new definitions to K-Pop and making Lisa a scapegoat.
A Twitter account with a name that reads as Lisa Fanbase called out the CEO of Spotify for the error on their part and that what they have just done is no match for the purpose that they serve for. And urged Spotify to apologize to Lisa.
