K-pop stans from all over the world have hijacked the hashtag “#ImpeachBidenNow” to silence supporters of former US President Donald Trump.

Following Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s filing of articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden just a day after his inauguration, Trump supporters have taken to social media to support the move.
