We Demand An Apology
A massive protest by K-pop fans on Twitter, due to one of the radio stations ridiculing BTS and K-pop in general.
Dominican Republic- On one of the radio stations issued by the Dominican Republic, the announcer and the guests mocked the Asian K-pop music, led by the world-famous band BTS, and the guests went on to talk sarcastically about the music and deliberately described it as Chinese.
K-pop fans around the world demanded an apology from the radio station, some of whom described what happened as excessive anti-Asian racism.
