Despite K-pop idols breaking the illusion and reminding fans that they are humans too, the decades-old facade that idols are perfect and almost god-like seems to be hard to forget. And with K-pop companies schooling their idols to act perfect and show no flaws, any disparity from that has fandoms in an uproar. The latest case seems to include Blackpink’s Jennie as antis claimed that she was smoking at Coachella.

A Twitter user made a thread of Jennie partying and allegedly smoking at Coachella. One of the videos was of Jennie and The Weeknd dancing and in the background there was smoke. Non-fans and antis felt that the Blackpink star was among those who were smoking and started dragging her for it. It has led to a fanwar between ARMY (BTS’ fans) and Blinks (Blackpink fans) as just a couple of weeks ago BTS’ V was seen smoking at the Grammys for which some Blinks had tweeted hate comments.

Blackpink’s Jennie partying at Coachella

While smoking is not illegal, with K-pop idols made to have an image where they can do no wrong, it just gives antis a chance to put them down when they are caught doing something remotely undesirable. Some antis also took this as a chance to point out that Jennie was also hanging out with Alexander Wang who had been accused of sexual assault. Blackpink fans brought receipts to debunk all the claims and have ended up trending ‘Respect Jennie’. Meanwhile, ARMY are calling out the double standards as some fans of Jennie had similarly sent hate to BTS’ V for smoking.

‘Don't try and control their lives’

One fan tweeted, “And you make no sense here, your implying that Jennie was smoking when in reality it was actually someone else that was behind her smoking. You can clearly see that in the vid you attached but you are acting dense on purpose.” Another Blink posted, “Yall stop making shit up about jennie. she wasn’t doing anything but dancing with her friends at the party, she wasn’t even drinking, and ppl saying she was smoking??? anyway she’s 26 let her live her life it’s none of your business.” One fan commented, “Why criticize women when they go out to party. When it comes to a male idol smoking or going out with his friends, they say: " he's of legal age, he can do whatever he wants " .But if Jennie hangs out with her friends she's a b**ch. RESPECT FOR JENNIE.”

At the same time, ARMY are making posts like, “Let’s see we have taehyung smoking right before giving the best performance of the night at the grammys vs jobless jennie hanging out with druggies & criminals bc she’d rather party & get high than give y’all music. hmm i see a clear winner here.” Another commented, “Why are you equating a grown adult smoking to jennie being friends and partying with a sexual assaulter.” However, some felt that the situation was getting out of hand, “Well your doing the same thing as them and i see no difference if y'all drag each other like this cuz both Tae and Jennie are grown humans and have the right to do whatever they want and they know they're own restrictions.” Another fan added, “Tae smoked, Jennie parties blah blah.. it's not your f**king business.. get over it.. they both are what 25 26.. they can decide shit for themselves ok.. let's support them in what ways we can.. don't try and control their lives.. thank you very much.”
