BLINKs have been enjoying seeing how much fun BLACKPINK are having in Los Angeles, California. They’ve been loving all the amazing content shared by them, their fellow BLINKs, and through media coverage. But BLACKPINK also had one experience that is making BLINKs very upset.
A few days ago, media channel Hollywood Fix shared a video of BLACKPINK having a meal at a restaurant in Beverly Hills. When they left the restaurant, the cameraman was seen getting extremely close to the members and continually asked them question after question even when they reached their van.

BLINKs were quick to notice how uncomfortable they looked and began calling out Hollywood Fixer for their behavior.
@ paparazzi in america can y’all give space to BLACKPINK, let them uhm B R E A T H E. They looked scared damn. Ik y’all are doing your jobs but there’s this thing called privacy and common sense. You don’t go ask another kpop group if they like another group. This is just rude

Fans were also very upset that BLACKPINK had to experience something like that and worried that they could experience more behavior like this in the future.
I keep seeing people say that it is normal for things like that to happen in the US with the paparazzi BUT just because it is normal DOES NOT mean it is okay and it SHOULDN’T be happening with US artists either!! BLACKPINK and all other artists deserve their privacy PERIOD.

Although Hollywood Fixer has not commented on their behavior, BLINKs are hoping they can get an apology. Meanwhile, BLINKs are also hopeful that BLACKPINK will get more security to help in case situations like this arise in the future.
