- Because it’s America, the face of the criminal would be revealed. The anti should be punished.
- Being an idol is such a hard job – there are so many crazy people.
- Jimin is human. He much be so scared to receive these death threats.I hope the person behind the threat can be caught.
- I’m not Jimin’s fan but this is really serious. With the current gun laws, the anti can be very dangerous. Hopefully the LA police can do something about this.
