While the Black Lives Matter movement has re-emerged and is as strong as ever after the murder of George Floyd, there is also the other end of the spectrum called the White Lives Matter movement that is described as a racist response supported by white supremacist groups.
However, they’re not quite getting their way on social media as K-pop fans have hijacked their ‘movement’ and we’re living for it!
How have they hijacked it, you may ask?
Well, fans of K-pop groups like Blackpink, Monsta X, BTS and others have been using the #WhiteLivesMatter hashtag to drown out racist messages on Twitter by posting anti-racist messages along with photos and videos of their favourite k-pop groups, reported ABC News.

Initially, some thought that the fans were using the hashtag seriously but they then realised what the fans were really trying to do.
“K-Pop fans completely hijacking the #WhiteLivesMatter hashtag makes me so proud,” one person tweeted.
“#WhiteLivesMatter LMAO I WAS READY TO INSULT THE S— OUT OF EVERYONE,” wrote another. “THEN I SAW THAT K-POP STANS ARE DESTROYING THE [hashtag], DAMN NEVER THOUGHT I’D BE THAT HAPPY SEEING K-POP FANCAM.”
“Imagine trying to trend #WhiteLivesMatter like a typical racist and Kpop fans said ‘Not on my watch b—-” another wrote.
Similarly, the #WhiteOutWednesday hashtag has also been bombarded by K-pop fans.

As of now, the #WhiteLivesMatter is still being flooded with K-pop clips and pictures and we have to say that these fans really mean business.
