While BLACKPINK was attacked by a Chinese netizen for touching baby pandas without gloves for their online show, YG Entertainment decided not to release the related episode.

On the morning of November 7, YG Entertainment notified fans that they will be postponing the release of “24/365 with BLACKPINK” last episode.

“Hello, We have decided to postpone the release of ‘BLACKPINK – 24/365 with BLACKPINK Last Episode.’

BLACKPINK’s zookeeper experience at Everland with the pandas took place under strict safety measures such as disinfection and participation of professional veterinarians.

In particular, when BLACKPINK members met with the baby panda, they were wearing protective gloves, masks and suits at all times, and we would like to stress again that between each scene, we underwent hands and shoes disinfectants.

Nevertheless, after taking into consideration recommendations by panda conservation experts and the practice of international cooperation that ‘non-experts coming into close contact with baby pandas can cause various misunderstandings,’ we decide to postpone the release of the related video.

We would like to thank you for all the concerns you showed, and we ask for your unwavering interest and affection for BLACKPINK as well as pandas.”

Earlier, BLACKPINK released a teaser for the last episode of their online show “24/365 with BLACKPINK,” which sparked a controversy among Chinese netizens.
