Apparently, many fans are using the hashtag #BLACKPINKLEAVEYG on Twitter and here’s everything you need to know about it!
On Thursday, #BLACKPINKLEAVEYG blew up on Twitter with many using this campaign to urge K-pop girl group to leave its agency, YG Entertainment. The reason for this is the company’s failure in promoting its idols and a series of scandals involving its other artists.
Recently, BLACKPINK became the first Korean group to reach one billion views on YouTube for their single music video, ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU’. But apparently, their comeback this 2019 was pushed back. Thus, this enraged most of their fans with them saying BLACKPINK is being “mistreated” and “held-back.”

All this rigorous training for 6 tedious years and for what exactly? Since their debut, they were banned from doing the same thing & YGE has been responsible in just 3 years of breaking the confidence and energy they formed in their time as treinees #BLACKPINKLEAVEYG pic.twitter.com/sM7OyTJOWM

Blinks trended #BLACKPINKLEAVEYG to voice our frustration, to let the world know that BP have 13 song not because they r lazy or chose to be models, but because they r mistreated from their misogynist company, by the end of the day, at least we got the media exposure we want.
