Taylor Swift fans caught making racist comments toward BTS and ARMY?

BTS' and ARMY, have been receiving racist comments from some fans of American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift.

As most are aware by now, BTS recently made a comeback with their new album 'Love Yourself ? - Tear' and the title track "Fake Love". Since then, the MV for the title track has been racking up millions of views, garnering attention all across the world - setting a new record of most viewed K-Pop MV in the first 24 hours by any Korean artist. 

With this in mind, netizens and ARMY alike have been watching the video over and over again to break another record - the most viewed MV in 24 hours in any genre, which is still held by Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" with the view count of 43 million whilst BTS' "Fake Love" was close at 41 million, unable to surpass the number set by the American artist.

While this challenge was going on, however, fans noticed some racist comments were being thrown towards BTS and their fandom, ARMY. In particular, tweets that are calling ARMY as "sushi stans".

Since seeing the racist comment(s), ARMY took to social media to either fire back or laugh off the situation as can be seen below.

What do you think of the situation?
