YG Entertainment’s management is under fire from Indian BLINKs for what they saw in BLACKPINK’s newest MV “How You Like That.”
The issue began when some fans noticed that the statue of the Hindu deity Ganesha was next to Lisa in one of her rap scenes. It was when she sat on the throne, the statue can be seen on the floor.
After Indian fans found out about this, many of them were furious. Ganesha is one of the most important deities worshipped for Indians, he symbolizes wisdom.
There are two points of criticism regarding the MV, the first one being that the statue was placed on the ground, many Indian BLINKs found it disrespectful that such a statue was on the floor, the statue is always placed on a high surface never on the floor.
The second point of criticism is that many Indian BLINKs find it very disrespectful that the statue is being used as a prop in an MV, many fans were critical of the MV for using their religion as an aesthetic.
Indian fans began trending the hashtags Ganesha and #YGapologise on twitter to express their thoughts on the matter. Fans are also keen on separating the BLACKPINK members from this issue as they had nothing to do with this and the MV was entirely planned by the YG management team.
Many have been mass-emailing the company asking them to apologize for the issue and correct the MV.
YG Entertainment has not yet issued a response on the matter.
Stay tuned for more updates!
