Recently, Colombian TV show 'Dia a Dia' took the time to introduce the popular K-Pop group and their latest hit "DNA". While the host was talking positively about BTS, saying that BTS is one of the most important groups in the world, a man in the back is captured making a racist slant-eye gesture (at 9 seconds in the clip below).
Fans found the panelist's actions offensive and commented, "I don't understand what the guy in black suit is saying but what bother me is the bald headed guy in the back stretching his eyes. [sic]"
BTS fans in Colombia apologized on behalf of the panelist, and explained, "As Colombians, we apologize if anyone was offended. In our country, it's not very common to talk about Asian culture", however, "It's not with an offense. We're working very hard for the Asian culture to be more recognized in our country and for referring to them properly and respectfully."
