BTS’s fanclubs have called out fans who flock to the airport and the hotel to refrain from causing harm to BTS
According to a report from NextShark on September 21 (local time), BTS’s fanclub, ARMY, announced a statement to urge fans to protect BTS‘s privacy and refrain from flocking to the hotel where BTS is staying in New York.
On September 19, BTS arrived in New York as President Moon Jae In’s special envoy for the future generation and culture. Upon hearing the news of BTS’s arrival, fans flocked all over the airport and even the group’s accommodation.
Recently, some fans released BTS’s flight and accommodation information, including the location and room number of the hotel in New York that BTS is staying, on the Internet. Immediately, other ARMYs criticized this group of fans for exposing BTS to danger ad spread the hashtag #ProtectBTS on Twitter.
Some fans who flocked around BTS’s accommodation replied, “If we maintain the safety, there won’t be any problem, right?”
On September 20, BTS was on a busy schedule at the UN headquarter in New York, such as making a speech at the opening ceremony of the 2nd SDG Moment (the high-level meeting on sustainable development goals).
Meanwhile, CNET reported that James Corden, host of CBS’s late-night talk show, mocked BTS fans and received negative responses on the Internet.
It is said that Corden has maintained a friendship with BTS after the group appeared on his talk show several times.
However, by calling BTS fans “a bunch of 15-year-old girls” and mocking BTS’s attendance at the UN General Assembly, he was reported to have been put on the “blacklist” by BTS ARMYs.
