K-pop stans have come to the rescue yet again, and are literally flooding the #MillionMAGAMarch hashtag with pictures of pancakes.
The Million MAGA March, or as it’s also been coined the “Stop the Steal” rally, will occur on Saturday 12pm (US time) and could be one of the biggest gatherings of far-right groups since the Unite the Right rally in 2017.
It is unknown who exactly is behind the Million MAGA March, but according to Refinery29, it was organised by a coalition of white-nationalist and far-right groups, who still believe the election was rigged *sighs*.
To try and fight against this march (without attending in person), K-pop stans from TikTok are now flooding the #MillionMAGAMarch hashtag with pancakes, rendering it useless for far-right protesters.
The idea seems to have come from Shea Depmore, who posted a TikTok asking K-pop stans (and others) to troll the fuck out of the rally.

“Proud Boys and mega-mad MAGAers are descending upon D.C. this Saturday for the Million MAGA March. I’ve seen many on this app rightfully warn people to stay away, as these fools come strapped and they’re angry. But I don’t want these Proud Boys to be proud,” Shea Depmore said in the TikTok.
“So, here’s what we are going to do: We are going to hold a Pancake Bitchez Million MAPA Brunch! That’s right, Make America Pancakes Again. Make yourself some pancakes or find a good stock photo and fill the hashtag #MillionMAGAMarch with syrupy goodness.
“Someone please inform the K-pop stans.”
Since the TikTok went up the hashtag has been flooded with 141K delicious pancake tweets, and god, I just really love K-pop stans.

This stan literally made BTS pancakes, and that is the kind of pancake/K-pop cross-over we love to see.

It’s not the first time, K-pop stans have trolled TF out of Trump. In August this year, Trump was reportedly furious over the low turnout at a re-election campaign rally, as a bunch of zoomers and stans reserved tickets for the event, but left the seats empty.
Stans also crashed an American police app by flooding it with K-pop fancams, after the Dallas Police Department tweeted a message telling users to report “illegal activity” from the BLM protests.
I stan, K-pop stans. A K-pop stan stan, even.
There is also an official Make America Pancakes Again website, that you can check out here.
