As the Black Lives Matter movement continues to grow, with protests in major cities across the United States, more K-pop idols have spoken out in support.

BTS has shared a message on Twitter using the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag, posting it to the @BTS_twt account, which is run by the members themselves.

MONSTA X has also shared their support for the movement via Twitter, using the hashtags #BlackLivesMatter, #NoRacism and #NoViolence.

ATEEZ used the hashtags #StopRacism, #StopTheViolence and #BlackLivesMatter to share a similar message.

Their posts have sparked the phrases 'Thank You For Speaking Up' and 'I Stan The Right Group' to trend on Twitter globally, with many fans having been waiting for the K-pop boy groups to speak out considering their international fanbases.

Several K-pop artists have been speaking out in support of Black Lives Matter and donating to relevant causes, including GOT7's Mark, Jay Park and his labels AOMG and H1GHR Music, DAY6's Jae and more.
