  • Big Hit Entertainment confirmed to CNN that BTS has donated $1 million to Black Lives Matter.

  • One In An ARMY is a charity fundraising group of BTS fans that has helped raise over $1 million for Black Lives Matter as well.

BTS and Big Hit Entertainment have thrown their support behind the Black Lives Matter Movement, and their fans are doing the same.

On June 4th, BTS tweeted their support for Black Lives Matter. "We stand against racial discrimination," the tweet says. "We condemn violence. You, I and we all have the right to be respected. We will stand together. #BlackLivesMatter"

Big Hit Entertainment confirmed BTS's donation of $1 million to Black Lives Matter to CNN and the BTS fan-based charity fundraising group, One In An ARMY, began its own campaign to expand on the group's efforts.

As a part of the #MatchAMillion movement, One In An ARMY confirmed it raised $1,007,518 last week on Twitter.

"ARMY You #MatchedAMillion," the tweet says. "It's really amazing to see so many of you coming together to support #BlackLivesMatter. Thank you so much to everyone who donated, shared, used the hastag [sic] and helped by any means to make this possible!"



"Black people all over the world are in pain at this moment from the trauma of centuries of oppression," said Kailee Scales, managing director for Black Lives Matter in response to the donation. In a statement to Variety, she continued, "We are moved by the generosity of BTS and allies all over the world who stand in solidarity in the fight for Black lives."

K-pop fans have also taken to Twitter to take over hashtags that oppose the Black Lives Matter movement.
