K-Pop Fans Are Flooding The #WhiteLivesMatter Hashtag With Fancams To Drown Out All The Racist Tweets

On Sunday, after the Dallas Police Department asked people to send in “video of illegal activity from the [Black Lives Matter] protests” via the city’s iWatch Dallas app, K-pop fans instead flooded the app with pictures and videos of their favorite artists — and within hours, the DPD said the app was down “due to technical difficulties.”

Well, as of last night, K-pop fans were back at it, once again mobilizing to support the Black Lives Matter movement.

Following #BlackoutTuesday, two racist hashtags — #WhiteoutWednesday and #WhiteLivesMatter — began to trend on Twitter overnight, prompting K-pop fans once again to spring into action.

Co-opting the hashtags, the fans flooded them with anti-racist tweets and K-pop fancam videos, effectively burying the messages from white supremacists.

People also used the hashtags to imagine the reaction of racists on Twitter to the K-pop fans’ response.

According to a Variety article posted early this morning, “At least for a period of time, the posts completely buried nearly all actual racist messages using the hashtag.”

So, K-pop fans, hats off to you!
