BTS member JiMin somehow ended up wearing a controversial t-shirt once again, after his previous one where the design depicted the bombing of Japan.
Just recently, the K-Pop boy group took a selfie inside the Empire State Building, as the iconic building also brightened up the city of New York with purple lights in welcoming the singers to the Big Apple.
And pretty soon, news reports about the words written on JiMin’s t-shirt began to surface. The t-shirt had “f*** you’ written in the Russian language. One news report stated that the members of BTS should have been more cautious and responsible as they are one of the biggest stars on the planet at the moment, and all eyes are on them.
However, netizens and fans began to claim that the news reports were making a big deal out of nothing.
“Is this such a big issue that a news report should be written about it, the reporter is overreacting.”
“Wow, so JiMin is so popular that this reporter tried to write something when it’s basically nothing. Is the reporter Japanese?”
“People make mistakes.”
While it is understandable that fans defend their idols, from one perspective, it could be said that BTS fans should also be cautious with issues such as this, as the entire fandom might be criticized just because of a few who have condoned profanity and vulgar language.
Below are some fans who have admitted that BTS should have been more cautious.
“This is something they should have been more careful about.”
“What the report says is right. In any case, these guys are loved by young people all around the world, and there’s no harm in taking precautions. The company should do well in this.”
How do you feel about the recent issue? Should fans be admitting that what Big Hit Entertainment or perhaps the group members themselves did was somewhat short-sighted? Or is the media trying to turn something that’s harmless into something harmful?
