Did BIBI Show Her Chest To Increase Broadcast Viewers? Here’s What Happened

Singer BIBI has been the talk of the town every day for two days. It seems that she has attracted massive attention as she has shown bold actions.

On November 13, the “Animal Farm” singer appeared as a guest on the Twitch channel of Calm Down Man, a streamer and webtoon artist.

During the broadcast, BIBI who revealed that she was preparing for a comeback album immediately gained 6,000 viewers, just right after her appearance.

As a response, BIBI asked the streamer how can she get the viewers to increase even more.

With a playful smile, the singer got up from his seat and lowered her upper body. In the process, Bibi’s chest bone was exposed that making even Calm Down Man embarrassed.

The Twitch streamer who was flustered by her action then told her that it was okay not to do it and that viewers will eventually come even when they are talking.

BIBI then responded:

“Don’t be nervous. There were many streamers like that when I saw internet broadcasts in the past.”

BIBI implied that this action reminded her of YouTubers/streamers who showed bold actions because it was internet broadcasting, not a public one.

As soon as the video spread online, this became a hot topic as it ranked high in the real-time ranking of famous portal sites and continued its atmosphere throughout the two days.

Web users were disappointed with how BIBI acted for various reasons.

First, it’s because no singer has ever exposed her chest bone on a show. Many people say it is “disrespectful” to this unexpected behavior. Even if it is an Internet broadcast, there is a line to be followed.

Another reason is that BIBI just made it hard to eradicate the prejudice that if a female singer exposes her chest, the number of views will increase. Many feminists were giving stinging gaze on her.

  • “Women should empower women, but she’s implying that it’s okay to sexually objectify for views?”
  • “I’m disappointed. She should have used her artistry and singing skills if she wants to get more views, but she’s exactly doing what other people think women are.”

Others are also frustrated that she did it as a guest on another streamer’s show, which is disrespectful.

On the other hand, some say that BIBI’s behavior is not surprising. It’s because she’s popular for her outspoken behavior and talks like the MZ generation.

  • “She’s just joking, it’s not a big deal.”
  • “She’s just being real.”
  • “I’m not sure why is this even a controversy.”
