On September 14, Monday, BLINKs noticed a sudden slew of hate comments on social media towards BLACKPINK's visual, Jisoo. To stand up for the idol, fans started trending #YG_ProtectJISOO, urging her company to take action against the malicious comments.

Fans are demanding YG Entertainment to protect their artists, including Jisoo, by filing lawsuits and taking the appropriate legal actions against the commenters.

Some of the hate comments Jisoo received are explicit and sexual. What surprised fans the most was how it was out of the blue. Jisoo had not done anything to warrant the hate comments, and BLACKPINK has not done any promotional activities since "How You Like That". The most they have done is promote "Ice Cream (feat. Selena Gomez)" on their social media accounts and share photos and Instagram stories for their fans.

Here are some of the threats and hate comments Jisoo received.

[Trigger warning: Mentions of rape and murder.]
