Even though it’s been approximately two months after Lisa of BLACKPINK performed at Crazy Horse Paris, she continues to get waves of criticism from both China and Korea. In particular, Lisa’s and her fan club’s Weibo accounts mysteriously vanished, leading some to speculate that she was “erased” from the Chinese entertainment industry.
At the same time, when the scandal grew on social media, it provoked heated disputes among Korean internet users. Most Naver comments show outrage that a K-pop idol like Lisa would play at a seedy establishment like Crazy Horse. Some even demanded that YG remove Lisa from BLACKPINK, on the grounds that doing so would protect the group’s and the industry’s reputation.
At the same time, if Lisa’s ban in China goes into effect, Korean netizens are worried about what would happen to BLACKPINK. They think the Chinese market has a significant impact on earnings from concerts, album sales, and advertising partnerships with high-end goods. If YG is unable to successfully market in this sector, it could suffer severe financial consequences.
Here is tweet about CEO of Bulgari brand defending Lisa:

Some commenters are also upset that Lisa hasn’t publicly apologized for the uproar she caused with her topless dance. On her profile, she is thought to have openly “challenged” the status quo. Lisa uploaded a series of photos from her five nights performing at Crazy Horse with the remark, “Call me if you need to fill an empty space.”
