On January 13, BTS held a global fan meeting event at the Gocheok SkyDome. While lining up for the event, several problems occurred in which the fans started pushing the fence and swearing at the security/workers while shouting out complaints after complaints. In addition to insulting the workers, it has come to light that they also mocked other fandoms and their idols such as EXO by shouting out "aeri/eri like b*tch". The term "aeri/eri" is what Baekhyun calls EXO-Ls as "L-y" sounds much like "aeri/eri" in Korean.
This entire situation came to light as the videos were aired live via SNS in which thousands of viewers watched which angered not only just regular netizens but EXO-Ls especially. Since the backlash, many ARMYs went onto various social media platforms to take the videos down while some issued an apology on the matter.

In the clip, fans can be heard shouting and complaining, "Do your job! Let us in! Why are you cutting off the line front of us? What're you trying to do?! F*ck! It's snowing! This is crazy! If you have a mouth, say something!"
Upon seeing this, netizens criticized some of ARMYs behaviors by saying, "This isn't a way anyone should behave", "I heard they were trying blame EXO-Ls for this", "Why are fans trying to cover this up? This is embarrassing", "What I want to ask them is what is the point of bringing up other fandoms and idols to express your frustration?", and much more.
What do you think of the situation?
