BLACKPINK member Lisa has been receiving racist attacks online over her Southeast Asian nationality, body proportion, and facial features—with some even claiming that she had undergone plastic surgery. One online post also expressed hatred against the youngest BLACKPINK member for being a non-Korean idol.

The continuous criticisms have sparked outrage from BLINKs who quickly flocked to social media to back up the female idol and even made the hashtag #RespectLisa trend worldwide.
"Why hate on Lisa because she’s a foreigner? She came to a new country at 14 to live her dream. She gets the worst treatment and yet she still smiles so widely to show us she is okay! Stop hating on people for no reason and just love," one BLINK tweeted.
"She's worked really really hard for years to make her dream come true. She deserve love and support," another defended.
