This commentary interprets the acerbic and defamatory commentary around the most recent trending of #RespectLisa in February 2021 within the theoretical framework of “intersectionality.” Drawn on intersectional feminist media, K-pop, and antifan studies, the commentary reveals the complexities of the hostility targeting the female Thai K-pop celebrity Lisa and considers the hateful discourse a manifestation of intersectional discrimination in global K-pop culture.
