For second times, BLACKPINK‘s Jisoo was voted one of the world’s most beautiful celebrities in this year’s TC Candler poll, but fans aren’t happy with how the company announced her rank.
TC Candler recently revealed the results of the vote for “The 100 Most Beautiful Faces of 2020” ranking, and Jisoo entered the list at 50th place.
However, while fans were excited to see the main visual’s good looks receive recognition, the way TC Candler announced Jisoo’s rank had BLACKPINK fans furious.
Every celebrity on the list received a custom caption from TC Candler, each tailored to the star themselves. But, Jisoo’s caption got off to a great start describing her as a singer, dancer, and model aged 25 (though it appears they forgot to add “actress”). However, the final part of the caption appeared to be mocking Jisoo in fans’ eyes: “Her English is a pity”.
BLINKs say the way TC Candler used the quote was completely out of line.
Since Jisoo is the only member of BLACKPINK who doesn’t speak fluent or near-fluent English, her language skills have often been mocked or criticized by outsiders to the fandom.
Many BLINKs say TC Candler’s caption is just another example of the same disrespect. Others questioned why her caption would be related to her English abilities at all when she has much more to offer.
Fans soon began calling on TC Candler to apologize to Jisoo. However, the company took a completely different stance.
As of yet, TC Candler is yet to say more on the matter, but BLINKs are continuing to use the hashtag #ApologizeToJisooTCCandler on Twitter to express their frustrations and pressure the company for a real apology.
