Blackpink star Lisa’s Chinese social media page on Weibo appears to have been taken down, weeks after she performed a burlesque routine in Paris that sparked a huge debate on China’s tightly regulated internet, according to CNN.

On Wednesday afternoon, her verified account @lalalalisa_m was no longer searchable on Weibo, one of China’s most popular social media networks.

Her replacement page stated that her account can no longer viewed as it has received complaints of breaches of law and regulations, as well as relevant rules from the Weibo Community Management Regulations.

It is not clear what types of complaint she has received but the suspension came after Lisa performed five shows at the Crazy Horse Paris in September.

CNN reported it has reached out to Weibo and the star’s record label YG Entertainment for comment.

Weibo accounts of Blackpink’s other members – Jisoo, Jennie, and Rose – remain online.

According to CNN, in China there was a fierce debate on Weibo between users who questioned Lisa’s decision to associate herself with Crazy Horse and those who supported her show.
