On September 12, South Korea suffered from the biggest earthquake in the country's recorded history, affecting regions around Gyeongju. Despite the fact that the earthquake did not cause any serious damage, aside from two minor injuries, a few BTS fans' activities online regarding the disaster have become the cause of some controversy.

Netizens noticed that around 9PM (KST), one of the trending posts on a popular internet cafe platform read, "Of course, because its Rap Monster's birthday, there's an earthquake. Definitely the god of destruction...." Furthermore, fans took to Twitter to trend similar jokes, saying, "The reason that an earthquake occurred today is because today is god of destruction's birthday so the earth is celebrating it" and replying, "Ah it's oppa's earthquake!!!!", "Even the ground is dancing because its happy", and more. 

Netizens, as well as ARMY who disagree with some of the fans in question, have been expressing shock and disdain toward these jokes, with comments like, "Aigoo, I'm here worrying about my grandmother... what is this...", "This is just defaming Rap Monster's image", "Wow.. Seriously why do they do this.. stop", "I'm a BTS fan but this is not okay. I was seriously so scared", and more. 

What do you think of the recent controversy?

As an ARMY i am very disappointed! then its actually immature little 12 year olds who shouldn't have social media, or a phone in that case, they should be studing (i'm 14 and i'm not this stupid) WTF IS WITH THESE IMMATURE LITTLE SHITS SAYING THIS? hopefully they know that BTS actually looks at these tweets when their tagged... and tbh i dont think NamJoonie oppa would be happy!

There are so many comments about how this is an unfair generalization, instead of the fact that this is a pretty immature thing to do. The article clearly says 'Some' fans and the fact is, this is a terrible thing for anyone to comment during such a tragedy. Of course people are going to get angry. All fandoms go through this, there's no point getting offended about it.

I don't know but I guess the Armys is being watched by the Akp making a small issue big, spreading and writing half-truths, false rumors while putting bias headlines --> not just Bts but some other groups also. I really wonder why?  last article was Armys criticized for its unmannerly behavior at 2018 K pop festival & there are only 3 pictures of some Armys standing on chair but what surprise me the most is the article saying Armys are hitting other people with their bag, cursing, pushing chairs. I searched for evidences on sns (fb, twitter..etc) and googled some articles and blogs but I found nothing about that hitting..etc. Not only that I also remember that Akp wrote an article saying fans were disappointed in rapmon who got injured on the concert (It's clearly not true!), Bts blocked North America because of a fan when it was twitter having problems, also claiming Philippines' armys misbehaved during their concert when it's only a small group!!! (-____-)

Every time few fans do something wrong the entire fandom is blamed, as well as the group themselves :/
