Group BLACKPINK member Lisa faced significant backlash due to her performance at a show in Paris, which led to the closure of her largest social media page on Weibo, as reported by CNN Hong Kong on November 1 (local time).
The media explained that the closure of Lisa's Weibo account seemed to be a consequence of her performance at the Crazy Horse show in Paris, France, back in September. While the Weibo accounts of the other Black Pink members—Jisoo, Jennie, and Rosé—remain active, Lisa's account was shut down.
Speculation arose that Weibo's action might have been prompted by Lisa's performance, which was deemed as overly revealing. The Chinese Directors Association strictly prohibits the promotion of vulgar and obscene performances, along with activities such as gambling, drugs, and violence, in order to maintain a sense of dignity.
Weibo released a statement on Lisa's Weibo address website, stating, "The account is no longer accessible due to complaints about violations of related regulations and laws under Weibo Community Management Regulations." The specific regulations and laws breached were not disclosed.
Lisa's performance at Crazy Horse, known as one of the top three cabaret shows in Paris, sparked controversy due to its high level of exposure. Her act involved a strip show, gradually removing her clothes on stage, albeit with her chest covered, distinguishing her from other performers.
The K-pop fan community was divided in their opinions about Lisa's appearance at the show. A Weibo user mentioned, "Lisa has remarkable talent. Why did Lisa choose Crazy Horse?" While another expressed, "Lisa's account should have been removed earlier."
Conversely, some netizens believed, "Critiquing Lisa's appearance at the Crazy Horse Show shouldn't warrant the closure of her account."
The repercussions of Lisa's performance also impacted the luxury brands she represents as a global ambassador. Bulgari and Celine China reportedly removed Lisa-related posts from their official Weibo accounts. Additionally, the CEO of Bulgari reportedly removed or concealed Lisa-related photos from his social media account.
