Hashtag #ENDviolence Trended Worldwide, ARMYs Fight Against Bullying
/ 8 Nov, 2018
ARMYs don't stay quiet for the bullying issue.
On November 8th, hashtag #ENDviolence was trending worldwide. It surfaced after one international fan of another fandom posted a photo of an ARMY being bullied in the public. According to the post, the bully took the ARMY's backpack and burnt it. Rubbing salt into the wound, the caption in the post reads, "Either way, she deserved it."

In fact, it's not the first time for ARMYs and the other K-pop fans to be bullied. There was even a fan (or probably more than one) who unfortunately passed away due to the bully. There are thousands -- hundreds of thousand -- K-pop fans around the world were treated unfairly. They were bullied simply because they love idols and their music.
Through the hashtag, hopefully, people will never hesitate to stand up for yourself when it comes to violence or bullying. There is a growing awareness in many parts of the world about the level and impact of violence and bullying in society. Let's #ENDviolence, people.
Thank you for the tip, @kangtaehyungs!
