BLACKPINK’s Jennie Continues To Receive Criticism About Her Character Despite Alleged Staff Stepping Up To Defend Her

BLACKPINK’s Jennie Continues To Receive Criticism About Her Character Despite Alleged Staff Stepping Up To Defend Her






Previously, a staff member stepped up to defend her.

BLACKPINK‘s Jennie was recently caught up in an indoor smoking controversy. She was caught smoking an e-cigarette while getting her makeup done. The moment was later deleted from the vlog that it was featured in, with her company apologizing for the matter.

Later, it was reported by Korean media outlet Sports Chosun, that a staff member who had been onsite stepped forward to explain the truth. The alleged staff member claimed that the makeup artist was completely fine with it, being a smoker themselves.

While the staff was looking for the lip product, Jennie had taken a drag of a bubble pen that was sold at the convenience store. It just so happened that the timing of her blowing the smoke out matched. She kept apologizing even after the show ended, and the staff involved also said that it was fine because they were also smokers. Although it is a problem that the smoke brushed by the top of the staff’s head, I think it’s not right for her past actions to be mentioned together as part of an attitude controversy [with this issue.] As her IRL friend, I’m leaving a comment as I feel upset that she is being misunderstood like this.

— Staff

Despite the clarification, netizens continue to condemn Jennie, alluding to poor character. Others questioned the identity of the alleged staff member, claiming that it was not a staff, but an unverified person who claimed to be her friend.

  • So who breathes in the smoke if she smokes while getting her makeup done?
  • The alleged staff member wasn’t even a staff, but just someone who had been there onsite. The OP did not post any proof, and just said that they were Jennie’s friend. And of course if you ask a worker if they are okay, they will say they are. Their livelihood or relationship with their client is on the line, so how can they say otherwise? This is ridiculous, really.
  • They’re all doing her makeup for her, but she’s just taking a drag like that LOL. She’s definitely not normal.
  • She’s not normal if she can’t even hold it in for the short time that people take to do her makeup, and just smokes in front of their faces.
  • Pathetic LOL. How can she not hold it in for that short moment while they do her makeup?
  • To the staff, celebrities who give them work are their god, so I feel like even if she shoots the smoke directly into their nostrils, they’ll still say it’s fine LOL. Celebrities definitely have the upper hand.
  • Seeing such posts surface is really like adding oil to the flame. Real friends wouldn’t write such things. If you feel upset, staying still is helping.
  • She’s really such a bad person.
