JB from GOT7 is under fire for making a comment on 'Flower Boy Bromance' that some say was homophobic.
In the recent episode of 'Flower Boy Bromance,' JB and Youngjae continued their hangout. During the show, however, after going to a couples cafe, JB seemed to express his discomfort at Youngjae's comment, "I wanted to come here with you." JB responds, "This place is not for two boys... I might beat you up."
International netizens started to express their anger against JB, claiming that his words had a homophobic undertone.

Of course, many fans are defending him, saying there was no malicious intent and that the comments are just a friendly jab/exchange between two close friends.
What do you guys think about what JB said? Was it a homophobic comment or are netizens overreacting to a joke?
