October 13th marked BTS member JiMin’s twenty fourth birthday.
And naturally, various different hashtags related to JiMin’s birthday began to trend on Twitter.
However, one hashtag in particular, #HappyBirthdayGorila has also been trending as well.
ARMY were quite angry as such a hashtag was left to trend online on JiMin’s birthday.
Various reports have claimed that the hashtag was actually written by an X1 fan, who claimed it was made just because he or she liked the nickname Gorila.
The alleged fan eventually wrote a letter of apology, not handwritten, but through the memo app on the phone and uploaded it online.
This caused more criticism as many felt that the apology wasn’t sincere and that more efforts such as hand writing it would have probably expressed more thoughtfulness.
However, it has been revealed that the creator of the hashtag was a twelve year old who also eventually wrote a handwritten letter of apology as well.
Netizens then began to say that it was unnecessary to attack and criticize the twelve year old so harshly as well.
What do you think of the situation?
