K-pop superstars BTS and their label-management agency Big Hit Entertainment have donated US$1 million to the cause of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement in the United States, according to a company representative Sunday.

據當地新聞報導,Big Hit發言人證實以BTS與Big Hit的名義捐贈了一百萬美金支持此運動。

“It is true that a donation of US$1 million was made in the name of BTS and Big Hit towards the Black Lives Matter cause,” a representative at Big Hit told Yonhap News Agency.

BTS早在上週四於官方推特帳號表示支持對抗歧視與暴力的示威運動「黑命貴Black Lives Matter」。

BTS on Thursday expressed support for the Black Lives Matter, joining the globally spreading initiative to protest against racism and violence.

「我們反對種族歧視。我們譴責暴力。你、我以及所有人都有被尊重的權利。我們站在同一陣線。」

“We stand against racial discrimination. We condemn violence. You, I and we all have the right to be respected. We will stand together,” the boy band wrote on its official Twitter account.

全球巨星包括女神卡卡、亞利安娜・格蘭德和碧昂絲也紛紛在各自的推特上向佛洛伊德致敬並表示支持黑人運動。除此之外,韓國巨星Crush與 Jay Park也在社群媒體上對非裔文化致意。

Global pop stars, like Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande and Beyonce, have paid tribute to Floyd and pledged solidarity with the African-American community on their social media as well. K-pop artists, such as Crush, Jay Park have also raised their voices via social media as part of their homage to African-American culture.
