'They are jealous of Jennie Kim'

However, fans are not having it as they defended the idol by stating how she was not lipsyncing like most idols and was actually rapping during the performance. Blinks (fans of Blackpink) stated that Blackpink is not a performance-centric K-pop group and it is not important for the girls to give out high-energy performances as they focus on their rapping and singing skills. One fan said, "As long as Jennie isn't lipsyncing, it's not a problem." Another fan said, "She might have moved less but she had swag and attitude = typical YG."
