Popular Korean band BTS and its Korean record label Big Hit Entertainment have $1 million to Black Lives Matter.
BTS and Big Hit Entertainment stated their solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter this week, declaring "we stand together" against racial discrimination.
The donation was transferred earlier this week, with Black Lives Matter confirming receipt to Big Hit on Friday.
The pledge comes at the end of a week that has seen many musicians and others call upon the music industry demonstrate support for the black community, which it has made moves to do with "Blackout Tuesday" — June 2, a day in which many companies paused the workday to discuss and strategize — and donations. Warner Music and its primary owner Len Blavatnik, as well as Sony Music, have pledged $100 million each to social justice causes.
