In the dynamic world of Kpop and high fashion, BLACKPINK Lisa finds herself at a crossroads following her controversial performance at Crazy Horse. There’s a growing buzz about luxury brands reevaluating their ties with her. Moreover, Lisa lost her million followers on Weibo. What do the public say?
Luxury Brands Potentially Distancing from Lisa
Recent developments in Korean media suggest that Lisa from BLACKPINK is still grappling with the repercussions of her participation in the Crazy Horse performance. A report by TV Report on November 2 highlighted that certain high-end fashion brands, previously associated with Lisa, seem to be distancing themselves. This observation is based on the removal of Lisa’s images from their promotional materials.
Notably, the CEO of BVLGARI reportedly erased photos with Lisa. There are also indications that social media accounts for CELINE and BVLGARI in China have either hidden or entirely removed posts featuring Lisa.
The Chinese Market’s Influence
This shift in brand strategy might be attributed to the negative reactions in China towards Lisa’s performance in the burlesque show. Given that the Chinese market accounts for a significant portion of global luxury goods sales (over 20%), this backlash could influence these brands’ decisions.
However, fans need to consider alternative explanations. One such possibility is that Lisa’s contracts with these brands are drawing to a close. This is a viable speculation, especially since her contract with YG Entertainment has concluded. Additionally, it’s noteworthy that BVLGARI falls under LVMH, a conglomerate connected to Frédéric Arnault, who is rumored to be Lisa’s boyfriend.
Social Media Implications and Celebrity Impact
Following the event, Lisa’s presence on Weibo appears to have been significantly affected. Her username on Weibo change from “lalalalisa_m” to “user7330454276.” Additionally, her extensive follower list vanished. The fan club account on Baidu dedicated to her also faced suspension.
Similarly, Chinese actresses Angelababy and Zhang Jiani, who reportedly attended BLACKPINK Lisa shows in Crazy Horse Paris, experienced limitations on their social media activities.
There has been a notable reaction from netizens to the news of luxury brands retracting their support for Lisa. This situation continues to develop, with ongoing discussions in various online forums and news outlets.
