On Weibo, one of the most popular social media networks in China, Blackpink star Lisa’s verified account @lalalalisa_m was no longer searchable on Wednesday afternoon. “The account can longer be viewed because it has received complaints of breaches of law and regulations, as well as relevant rules from the Weibo Community Management Regulations,” her replacement page stated. This comes weeks after the Thai star performed a burlesque routine in Paris that sparked a huge debate on China’s strictly regulated internet.
It’s unclear what kinds of complaints she has gotten, but Chinese web businesses frequently take down or ban content that violates the nation’s numerous censorship laws or that just stir up too much controversy.After Lisa gave five performances at the Crazy Horse Paris in September, her account was suspended. Although her presentations caused controversy in some Asian regions where more conservative views may be prevalent, the venue is one of the best burlesque performance locations in the city.
Jisoo, Jennie, and Rose, the other members of Blackpink, still have active Weibo profiles.With their 2016 debut, the K-Pop supergroup Blackpink gained recognition throughout the world. This year, the ensemble performed as the headlining act at Coachella and has worked with American vocalists like Selena Gomez and Lady Gaga.The sole member of the group without Korean ancestry, Lisa, has amassed a sizable fan base, especially in China, thanks to her appearance as a coach on a reality dance program.There was a heated discussion on Weibo in China between fans of Lisa’s show and those who disagreed with her decision to affiliate herself with Crazy Horse.
Lisa is provided with excellent resources. One Weibo user asked, “Why did she choose the Crazy Horse show?”Another person claimed that her account ought to have been deleted sooner. The user stated, “After attending the Crazy Horse show, she was still very high-profile on Weibo.”
