There have been calls worldwide, not just in Indonesia, for Twice's management agency, JYP Entertainment, to end the endorsement deal.

In an email template which gained traction on Twitter over the weekend, their fans – known as Once – wrote: "As Twice's fans, we find it important that we're all respected regardless of our race/ethnicity. We find it unethical that Twice are promoting a brand with skin whitening products, knowing that they have fans with darker skin complexions."
