Fans of Korean popular music, widely known as K-pop stans, have gained control over the Twitter hashtag “White Lives Matter” on Wednesday, apparently to hijack the White Supremacy-inspired trend and showcase their solidarity with those protesting the death of George Floyd.

The K-pop fan groups of BTS, MONSTA X, and BLACKPINK made a proud display of their overwhelming social media presence to obscure the 'White Lives Matter' and 'Blue Lives Matter' hashtags which have often been used to criticize the 'Black Lives Matter' movement.

Most of the posts contained an anti-racist message alongside a video of their favorite K-pop stars, ABC News reported. The move received a great deal of support from fellow Twitter users.

"K-Pop fans completely hijacking the #WhiteLivesMatter hashtag makes me so proud," one user wrote.

It, however, seemed baffling to many as they thought the fans were circulating the hashtags seriously, while others were quick to notice the sarcastic undertones of the content added to the trend and began praising the K-pop fandom, the report added.

Some posts also appeared to be “fancams,” in which K-pop fans tend to share the clips of live performances of their favorite Hallyu artists.

It was an all-out virtual attack against what the fans said was racist hashtags doing rounds on Twitter to outweigh the “Black Lives Matter” movement.

The term “White Lives Matter,” originated in 2015, is a “white supremacist phrase” and a “racist response” to the civil rights movement “Black Lives Matter,” according to Anti-Defamation League. Some alleged racist groups have been using #WhiteLivesMatter as a means of gaslighting the black lives movement.

"K-pop stans unite to take out the trash," wrote another.

“why is it 8am and i am literally teary eyed that kpop twitter hijacked the #WhiteLivesMatter hashtag to drown out the racism and fill with fancams and petitions like…..never DRAG THEM AGAIN. kpop stans are FOR THE PEOPLE,” a Twitter post read.

A similar hashtag, “White Out Wednesday,” introduced with the aim to troll the “Black Out Tuesday” trend on Twitter, also met the same fate. Social media users literally posted photos of quick-dry correction fluid under the hashtag.

The move buried nearly all actual racist messages using the hashtags for some time. Some of the posts, however, rubbed people the wrong way stirring anger and hostility.
