Dear Spotify staff,
Many fans including myself feel disappointed by boy group BTS' name being brought up in K-pop girl group BlackPink's spotify profile.
I am sure the writer of BlackPink's spotify profile description meant no harm, but mentioning one artist's name in another's profile description is something we found quite out of context and disrespectful.
-BTS and BlackPink are both talented groups in their own authentic ways and associating them with eachother for a fact as trivial as the one that they're in the same music industry isn't fair because they're completely different and hard working artists who deserve to be loved for themselves, their concepts and their own music, not because they 'resemble' eachother. By associating them, that is likely to damage the artists' sense of authenticity and ruin it especially for the people who don't know them yet.
-This could and has led to new listeners concluding that 'BlackPink is the girl version of BTS' which is undeniably wrong and unfair on both groups. They are both unique and should be known as such.
-BlackPink is consisted of 4 artists who we respect. I will repeat it : we BTS fans completely respect BlackPink and every hard working artist who is under YG Entertainment.
But, their company YG Entertainment has been known for not being very kind to BTS back when they were underground artists. So I hope you understand that that's the biggest reason why we do not want YG to be given the chance of using BTS for their own promotion.
As one of the biggest music platforms in the world, I am sure you do not only want your listeners to be satisfied but also your artists to shine under the best light possible. Please take both groups' authenticity and hard work into consideration because saying that they sound that much alike is not the right way to do it.
All we ask is for you to simply remove those 3 letters from BlackPink's Spotify profile description.
Thank you for reading.

It looks like BLACKPINK have edited their bio and it now doesn't mention BTS.
Just as a heads up, Artist Bio's are controled by the artist so we wouldn't edit what is written in them.
