BTS is one of the most prominent boy bands on the earth right now. From garnering massive amounts of love to conquering the charts, the Bangtan Boys have been living it up to the fullest. Things aren’t always ideal for the seven guys, unfortunately. This level of celebrity comes at a cost, and the cost is a spate of major scandals. Take a look at some of the significant BTS Controversies that have ever been there over the years:
BTS soared to the top of the charts after the release of their single I Need U. As they outsold renowned acts like Big Bang, the boys were accused of attempting to influence the charts by using illegal tactics. After it was discovered that BTS had made a profit. Also Read: BTS and their habits
When Jimin was seen wearing a highly contentious shirt that appeared to memorialize the Hiroshima bombing, he was caught in the middle of a downpour. The “atomic bomb” T-shirt, which incorporated Korean independence slogans, was viewed by some Japanese nationalists as a celebration of the explosion that eventually led to the Korean peninsula’s independence from Japanese dominance. In Japan, the problem got so severe that a national television show was compelled to cancel its broadcast.
Their 2014 single War of Hormone was heavily condemned for being sexist. Netizens perceived lyrics like “ladies are the best gift” and “wear high heels more often” as objectifying women. Suga and RM were also accused of being misogynistic due to a statement and a song. Due to these BTS get caught up in controversies.
Jungkook put himself into a lot of trouble in April of 2020 when he and his 97 liner squad were caught in a restaurant and bar in Itaewon. At the same time, the Korean government urged people to maintain a safe distance from one another in order to prevent the virus from spreading. His performance was widely panned, and his agency was obliged to step in and apologize. Jungkook expressed regret to his fans and addressed the problem.
In 2015, RM was accused of plagiarism by a few Twitter accounts. He allegedly took their lines and claimed them as his own, according to them. This soon turned into a controversy. RM apologized for not verifying the original source and noted that he gets song ideas from books, movies, interviews, and letters and that it was his mistake not to do so. The incident was resolved amicably, with one of the Twitter accounts even apologizing for causing an unnecessary uproar. Also Read: Hard Choreography Music Performances of BTS
Threats to RM’s life were made against him while BTS was in the United States in 2015, which many feels were in retaliation to RM’s controversial statement in an Australian interview in which he said, “When I first saw V and J-Hope, I couldn’t see them because they were too black.”Because of the snacks, they had to cancel the rest of their US trip. Then, on their Wings tour in 2017, Jimin got death threats as well, prompting the authorities to beef up their security.
After making a joke on the Korean War at the Van Fleet Awards 2020 in October 2020, BTS received a lot of anger from Chinese followers. After accepting the prize for their “contributions” to merging the Korea-US relationship, BTS’s leader RM gave a speech. If BTS does not understand the sacrifices made by Chinese soldiers during the war, they were told not to make money from China. As a result, many websites quickly removed any BTS-related content.
