Red Velvet's Yeri speaks out on social media for the Black Lives Matter protests


Red Velvet's Yeri took some time to acknowledge and support the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests following the tragic death of George Floyd. 

The popular idol uploaded a story sharing a post made by her friend and former SM trainee Herin Seo. The long post expresses outrage and disgust at the ongoing violence towards African Americans, and it seems like Yeri is doing her part in speaking up for the movement by sharing the post.

Ive been seeing a lot of people & brands post unnecessary things daily and it angers me that they choose to ignore and not put their efforts into an incredibly more important matter. I have also seen people vaguely post about the situation, evidently showing no compassion or will to take proper action against this hate crime. We have been following a corrupt system for years and people of colour deserve basic human rights. And as a HUMAN BEING we need to help our fellow people in their times of need. It disgusts me that there are still people out there that do not empathize for the black community and ignore their mistreatment. AGAIN WHITE PRIVILEGE. Please do all that you can by spreading awareness, signing petitions, speaking about it to fam&friends and protesting. #blacklivesmatter #raisethedegree find the petitions @ https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/ we will not stop.

soo, will Asia and Korea stop there racism against blacks and those with darker skin or are you just riding the BLM train like the rest of the world. This is becoming glamorized which is what is disturbing

I really hope SM doesn't make her apologize for this.
