Ivanka Trump, daughter and senior advisor to President Donald Trump, has been getting a lot of hate from BTS fandom, ARMY.
Just a few years ago, we never would have imagined K-Pop and US politics ever being mentioned in the same sentence.
However, the Trump family has actually been seen with several prominent figures in the K-Pop industry in the past, such as when Ivanka Trump met up with EXO during the PyeongChang Olympics that left fans left in fascination.
So what made ARMY angry this time?
Some ARMY thought that the post had something to do with the boy group BTS, and here's why.
As US citizens are probably aware, President Trump delivered his State of the Union address recently, which is why Ivanka Trump uploaded a photo with the hashtag "BTS" which was referring to "behind-the-scenes". And according to some of the fans, it seems that the boy group's iconic purple logo was also used?
Some have threatened to take legal action.
