On August 29, the international idol survival show created by HYBE and GEFFEN Records, The Debut: Dream Academy (also known as Dream Academy), introduced its 20 global contestants.

One of the participants who caught the attention of netizens worldwide was the 17-year-old Samara from Brazil.

On October 11, fans discovered that Samara’s likes on TikTok were not private and began looking through them. Fans found questionable videos discussing the Israel-Palestine crisis and some that many considered offensive to Indians.

“If you take the enemies of Israel today the Muslims and China you get 200 million soldiers”

I’m failing to understand as to why Hybe hasn’t released a statement or something to explain what’s going to happen to Samara moving forward…Elimination is nothing, girlie needs to get disqualified. Who knows what Samara says about Lara and Ezrela.#DREAMACADEMYHQ#DREAMACADEMY pic.twitter.com/sSz6yfEU5R

Now, Samara’s mother has appeared to respond to comments on her daughter’s social media activity.

Samara has a public Instagram account where she follows many family members, including her mother.

On a post on her mother’s account, a fan reportedly left a comment warning her about what was going on with Samara and asking her to do something about the hate.

Please do something about the hate on Samara before it’s gets out of hand. Her mental health might be at stake. Even if the company isn’t doing anything, you are her family. Please do something ma’am. And oh, just because I’m worried about her doesn’t mean I support what she has done.
I am black and I don’t support racism.
Please rewrite your wrongs. Thank you

Samara’s mother allegedly left a comment responding to this in Portuguese, saying that Samara did nothing wrong.

She did absolutely nothing [wrong]. Thanks for the support and concern.

Many fans have taken this as confirmation that Samara did like those things and are wondering if Samara and HYBE will speak out.

her mom obviously isn’t going to think it’s wrong since she probably taugt her that. however so many people are offended and this really is something samara herself should address. https://t.co/zcvSjsq1cL
