After K-pop titan BTS stated its solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter this week, declaring "we stand together" against racial discrimination, the group and its Korean record label are making a further commitment: BTS and Big Hit Entertainment have donated US$1mil to Black Lives Matter, a rep for Big Hit confirms to Variety.

The donation was transferred earlier this week, with Black Lives Matter confirming receipt to Big Hit early on Saturday, June 6. BTS and Big Hit are not expected to comment on the donation; a rep for Black Lives Matter did not immediately respond to Variety's request for comment.
