BLACKPINK Fans Are Mad At Concert Organizers For Cutting The Group's Performance!

Blackpink joined this year's family festival of the Korean travel retail giant Lotte Duty Free alongside other K-Pop groups like BTS, BTOB and B1A4. But fans weren't too happy with what happened during the girls' performance.
The female quartet was originally scheduled to play four songs, but to Blinks' dismay, their set was cut in the middle of their "Forever Young" performance. Fans have taken their complaints to social media, labelling the concert a "mess."
I’m not a BLINK but I think Blackpink was sabotaged. They knew people were outside waiting so why let them start?!? This group is breaking records and Lotte staff is very unprofessional! #blackpink (Thread) pic.twitter.com/GL2J9ihxdv— (G)I-DLE (@makeupbully) June 22, 2018
This is not how you run an event. You just don’t cut the performers, even stop the music and escort BLACKPINK off the stage. Lotte, you could’ve done better. YG will not be impressed. This is disrespectful to BLINKs 🤔🤔😡🤯 pic.twitter.com/Q3zOW9u1Gc— onlyprettyRose 💖👑 #SQUAREUP (@onlyRose17) June 22, 2018

Later on, the organizer expressed their apology explaining that the "safety of the audience is the top priority and thus, the performance has been interrupted during BLACKPINK’s third song, ‘Forever Young’."
Some fans also shared news that Blackpink sent them ice cream as token of amends for the incident.
BLACKPINK was sorry about the incident yesterday at Lotte Family Concert and they prepared Ice Cream for the fans and said that they will work harder today 😭😭 pic.twitter.com/TW9bOMFdsr— XT (๑･ᴗ･๑) 뚜두뚜두 (@poopheyy) June 23, 2018
