Blinks raged on Twitter with the hashtag #SHOPEESCAM as Shopee Philippines (The Official Sponsor of BlackPink's Fanmeeting in the Philippines) allegedly secured tickets for many influencers and celebrities whom they suspect of having zero knowledge about BlackPink and Kpop in general, scraping off the big portion of privilege many fans might get, especially to those who has exerted efforts and paid a lot according to them. Many also thought that it is invalidating Blink's right as a fan.
Not only that, Shopee's recent fanmeeting required top spenders who'll be able to meet BlackPink as a prize for the slot they have obtained, no doubt that you have to spend a fortune according to the said mechanics. But on the day of announcing the winners and distributing the tickets, Shopee PH didn't give the tickets to the top spenders and changed the mechanics for the last remaining minutes instead. It was said that they earned more or less than PHP 2.5 Million from Blink's alone. Fans also became suspicious as the new winners from their Twitter contest are allegedly trolls and some are newly made accounts.
