Filipino YouTube Vlogger Says Sorry for His Vlog about BLACKPINK
Mimiyuuuh released an apology statement days after his video titled "Mimiyuuuh as Lisa Manoban for a day" went viral. The famous vlogger, in his statement, said that he deleted the parts that were found offensive by Rosé's fans.
The online star said he did not mean to upset or transgress anyone since the clip was made for entertainment purposes only. Mimiyuuuh, however, admitted that he might have overlooked some parts that may have insulted the avid followers of BLACKPINK, collectively known as BLINKs.
Hi guys! I hope you are all safe and sound!— mimiyuuuh 🦖 (@mimiyuuuh) March 30, 2021
I deleted the parts that are offensive especially to Rosé and her fans. I did not mean to offend anyone! This video was supposedly made purely for entertainment but I overlooked some skits that may upset the blinks.
Mimiyuuuh posted the statement on his official Twitter and Facebook accounts. The vlogger did not mention what arts of the controversial video were deleted. However, numerous fans rerecorded it and shared it online before Mimiyuuuh could remove it. In one clip shared by a fan, Mimiyuuuh was heard being asked about his opinion on the first-ever solo album of BLACKPINK member Rosé. The vlogger retorted that it was just fine, which prompted several followers of the South Korean pop star to react.
Others also noticed when Mimiyuuuh claimed, in the original video, that "On the Ground" was supposedly the solo debut single of BLACKPINK Lisa, whom he was impersonating at that time. However, the management, allegedly, decided to allow Rosé to record it because she was pitiful.
If that is not enough, the Filipino vlogger was also heard saying, in a skit, that Rosé's brain is on the ground. Fans did not find Mimiyuuuh's jokes funny, saying that he does not have a right to mock or offend the other members even if he is also a fan of the girl group.
Mimiyuuuh, in one of his Instagram stories on Tuesday, made it clear that he did not make the video to take advantage of BLACKPINK's popularity. He even claimed that he has been following Jennie, Lisa, Rosé, and Jisoo since the release of their chart-topping hits "Boombayah" and "Whistle."
