BTS Army makes #WeDemandApology trend in India after Spanish podcast

Days after Bollywood actress Ananya Panday got trolled for her comments she had made about the K-Pop band (and global sensation) BTS, and Alia Bhatt was received with mixed response for her shout-out for the Bangtan Boys and their number, Butter, fans of the band who are also known as the BTS ARMY, are demanding an apology for an insulting Spanish podcast that surfaced on Tuesday night.

In the podcast, 5 radio jockeys are seen disparagingly describing BTS as “Chinese backstreet boys”. They alleged that “they have got surgeries done to look like a mix of Asians and North Americans.” The fans, obviously, were upset, and very soon the hashtag #WeDemandApology was trending at No.1 in India.

The trend is also related to the hashtag #StopAsianHate.
BTS is globally one of the most popular boy bands, whose members are RM (Kim Namjoon), Jin (Kim Seokjin), Suga (Min Yoongi), J-Hope (Jung Hoseok), Jimin (Park Jimin), V (Kim Taehyung), and Jungkook (Jeon Jungkook).

One member wrote: “the fact that they r old enough to know what’s right n wrong is disgusting. They didn’t even hesitate to say these words with ppl listening to them. We demand an apology!! #EstoNoEsRadioXenofobico #StopAsianHate #XenophobiaIsNotHumor.”

Another member expressed a similar sentiment: “it’s always BTS who suffer from racism. that’s why they use their platform about this because they, themselves, are experiencing it. EDUCATE YOURSELF TO RESPECT OTHERS. WE DEMAND APOLOGY #EstoNoEsRadioXenofobico #StopAsianHate #XenophobiaIsNotHumor”.

One more angry member wrote, “The fact that they’re hired as radio hosts are just ridiculous. Didn’t they even think twice b4 broadcasting it? This platform should b used to spread positivity and awareness, not Xenophobia. WE DEMAND AN APOLOGY. #XenophobiaIsNotHumor #EstoNoEsRadioXenofobico #StopAsianHate.”
