A representative for Big Hit confirms to Variety, BTS and Big Hit Entertainment have donated an amazing $1 million to Black Lives Matter.
The donation was transferred and Black Lives matter confirmed the receipt to Big Hit early on Saturday, June 6.
BTS and Big Hit have not published any official statement or commented on the donation, and it is to be remembered that they are not required to do so. Black Lives Matter representatives did not immediately respond to Variety’s request for more comments.
