BLACKPINK's Fans Are Kicking Off After A 'Drug Bust' Was Falsely Reported At Their Sydney Gig
ICYMI, do not cross BLACKPINK fans.
Over the weekend the K-pop girl group performed for their massive hoard of loyal followers at the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney as a part of their In Your Area world tour.
On Saturday evening just metres away at Sydney Olympic Park, dance festival I Am Hardstyle also took place and let's just say it was a wildly different fanbase. In fact police reported that 5 people were arrested on drug supply charges.
It was at a festival!!
Festivals are always riddled with drug scandals not K-pop concerts!! Never!!
I Am Hardstyle Music Festival- was the actual event
Not #BLACKPINK's concert!

However during Channel 9's Sunday afternoon news slot, they ran a story reporting on the drug bust and used footage from BLACKPINK's concert.
Let's just say fans were NOT happy about the mix up and correctly so given this false reporting could be hugely damaging for the band and their fans.
You falsely accused the girls of having drug usage in their concerts, you are defaming their image as idols, as a rolo model to hundreds. Channel 9 apologise to BLACKPINK for making this huge mistake. The drugs was at a festival/rave!!!! pic.twitter.com/TVCDfjWPxj

Guys channel 9 messed up badly those five people who were arrested were from a rave concert thing next to the blackpink concert at the same night.

This happened outside the venue/rave, but you dragged BLACKPINK in this news.
Apologize to BLACKPINK. This creates a false image & we demand a clarification & an official apology from Channel 9 Australia!#Channel9ApologiseToBLACKPINK

Social media users have now called for an apology from Channel 9, so we will have to wait and see if they can own up to their embarrassing gaffe.
This should come as a warning - do not mess with BLACKPINK fans!
