Why BTS Are Being Criticized For Their Decision To Perform In Saudi Arabia

The Hollywood Reporter

Big Hit Entertainment boy group BTS are currently receiving criticism for their decision to perform in Saudi Arabia.

If you’re wondering why they are being criticized for this decision, it mainly has to do with the LGBT community.

 

Because Saudi Arabia prohibits same sex marriage, many people believe that BTS’s message of ‘Love Yourself’ was contradictory and that the boy group shouldn’t perform there.

However, in BTS’s defense, what’s important is that they go wherever there are fans and people who want to see them. Group member JiMin has stated:

“Simply put, if there are people who want to see us, we will go to them.”

 

Do you think BTS should be receiving criticism?

The problem is the active boycott against Saudi Arabia because of their egregious human rights violations. Not simply because LGBT people are offended because of homophobic laws, this was a poor choice.

I don’t think the song LOVE YOURSELF of BTS wil do harm in SAUDI ARABIA. what i know is they like to perform in KSA.. I Think LOVE YOURSELF has nothing to do w/ LGBT group.. hope saudians kill their mis conception.. peace !

Ok who wants to throw hands because I think that it’s a good idea they preform there I mean the damn thing is about loving yourself and the facts that the LGBT community accepts themselves and chooses to love themselves and I’m bi and BTS helped me to love myself and bring me out of the dark place so to those who as low to criticize them needs to back off and stay the in their lane because it’s not your music or your life to live if you don’t like well guess what no one cares because you should… Read more »

BTS has the right to performe in anywhere they want to do. It depends on their fans who want to see them or not. They are artist and as artist, they give many good masseges through their songs to their fans and also to the world. For this reason, they should be respected by every community.
