Others in the industry, such as BM of pop group KARD and rapper Tiger JK, all voiced their support for the Black Lives Matter movement, while DeVita called out other artists who appropriate Black culture for not standing up.
They’re profiting off of black culture but not showing up when their help is needed. They wouldn’t have their platform if it wasn’t for black culture. It shows that they care about the money they can make from it, but not about the people. https://t.co/hZ1FJKtAHx
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
