Fans flood YG Entertainment’s inbox as they urge the company to “take action” in protecting Jennie
The hottest couple right now is definitely G-Dragon and Jennie (BLACKPINK). On the morning of February 24, Dispatch reported that the two YG stars have been dating for more than a year. Dispatch also captured the moment Jennie went to G-Dragon’s luxury penthouse to date.
The couple received a lot of support from the public, but there are also many mixed opinions. Recently, BLACKPINK fans sent a petition mail to YG Entertainment, asking the company to take action in protecting their artists after Jennie has been stalked by Dispatch for nearly 3 years.
BLINKs (BLACKPINK’s fandom) are concerned for the safety, health, and privacy of Jennie. Many Blinks get angry when Jennie has been followed by Dispatch for nearly 3 years. The female idol is closely stalked, her entire schedule and daily habits are also recorded.
Since the dating news was published, the number of malicious comments targeting Jennie has also increased rapidly on social networks. Many Blinks also said that the statement “can not confirm anything” from YG caused Jennie to receive more mixed opinions.
Fans pointed out that Jennie has not updated her Instagram since the dating news broke out, while before that, she frequently interacted on social networks. When the relationship with Kai (EXO) was revealed, Jennie also disappeared on social networks for a long time. Therefore, fans worry that the revealed love story affects the female idol’s psychology.
“We hope you are aware that the artist has been stalked by a few guys for nearly three years. They followed her very close enough to know exactly what her routine was as soon as she left her house. She is a celebrity and her life may always be under public scrutiny, but she still has a private life that should be protected as an individual.
We hope that you stop this neglect and make a statement as soon as possible regarding your active protection against your artist, especially Jenny. Stalking entertainers is a crime. Letting go of crime is another crime. We are hoping for an immediate and effective response.” – Fans’ mass email template
However, many people believe that it is common for paparazzi to follow the stars in the entertainment world. Dispatch also has its own rule that only reveals dating news of famous stars, not revealing the relationships of rookies and outsiders as well as gay relationships.
