K-Pop Fans Drown Out Racist Posts With Fancams
Karen Jane Ng
Racism has no place in K-Pop fans' Twitter realm. To prove that, they came together to take over the #WhiteLivesMatter trend and drown out the racist messages by spamming the feed with their faves' fancams instead. The platform even ended up associating the hashtag with "K-Pop".
