NETIZENS’COMMENTS

i hope yall don’t support this at all. and boycott this video. if loona stan’s can boycott yall can too. it’s not that hard. you can go without supporting your faves for a day. Palestinians don’t get an opportunity to do what we can do. notice your privilege. educate yourselves. don’t lose morals over kpop. no matter who your faves are.

I was so happy until I saw that it’s a coc@cola advertisement

What about boycotting Coca-Cola and stuff???? I will not watch the mv, Palestinians’ lives come first.

was so excited but then it’s a collab with coca cola

HELLO! We do NOT want TWICE, Stray Kids, ITZY, NiziU, Xdinary Heroes, NMIXX, or any JYPE artists to associate with or promote Coca-Cola, STARBUCKS, Disney+, or McDonald’s. These companies are financing a genocide in Palestine. Please take note of our concerns.

That means boycotting this too!!!!People are dying pls don’t stream this even if ur excited!!! It’s not worth it

this is not it, lets not forget abt palestine

JYPE literally making half their artists collab for a genocide brand and y’all are just going “omg collab” BE SERIOUS!!!

I am hearth broken .. i had high hopes in you .. i am so sad skz and im actually shocked

Definitely has nothing to do with the groups, the company is at fault.

I’M HAPPY THAT THERE’S A BIG COLLABORATION BUT FOR A COCA COLA AD? AIN’T NO WAY JYP ACCEPT THE OFFER

The controversy serves as a stark reminder of the interconnectedness between the entertainment world and global issues, with fans using their collective voice to hold companies accountable for their affiliations and actions.
