But just as BTS have fans, they also have haters.
Today's topic is a bit sensitive, which belongs to BTS member Jungkook, but it can also be related to other BTS members.
● What happened?
There have been photos, videos, and tweets that have been circling the web of the Bangtan Boys being under threat from an unknown girl who suddenly appeared. At first, this girl appeared on Tiktok and Twitter distorting BTS pictures in a very ugly way, and she posted a clip claiming that she has been casting black magic on Jungkook and in return, made the ARMY fear that something would happen to him.
The video she posted looked very scary.
● How did ARMYs react to this?
The topic of this girl became big and reached worldwide, and it spread like wildfire. In the comments of the video that the girl posted, she received a great attack from the global ARMY and the Arab ARMY in particular by reporting her social media accounts.
● What was that girl's response?
After that, the girl published a small clip on TikTok containing a warning sentence about people reporting her accounts. It looked like a threat. Of course, the issue grew and it reached BTS's management to take action and resolve the issue.
● Did ARMYs and netizens take other action against it?
This girl was subjected to a great attack by ARMYs, and many kept praying for Jungkook not to be harmed. The warnings spread everywhere to the point that a foreign ARMY went to the account of this girl's mother on Instagram and told her that her daughter was doing black magic and explained everything to the mother.
● What happened to that girl after that? Has she stopped what she was doing?
There have been updates saying that the mother of the girl who had been performing the black magic thanked the ARMY for reaching out to her and warned her against her daughter's deeds.
● Did this girl apologize?
In fact, the mother punished her daughter and took her phone from her after the girl apologized to everyone and said that she was only joking stating that they were just scented candles and that she did not know anything about magic.
● But why did she do that from the beginning?
There has been no confirmation as to why the black magic is being performed, but there was buzz online stating that the girl doesn't want Jungkook to date, anyone. Or maybe, she just wanted to get the member's attention, especially since she was tagging BTS on all her videos
