Fans are angry at a writer who criticized RM's English. 

Currently, BTS is in the United Kingdom for their 'Love Yourself' world tour. The K-pop stars, who're also commonly referred to as "the biggest boy band in the world", has taken over the U.K media upon their arrival. Many media outlets including British national newspaper, The Times, published an article about the idol stars

Unfortunately, the piece is receiving complaints from ARMYs for its negative tone. The part that angered the fans the most is where the writer mentioned how RM learned English from the show 'Friends', and commented, "[RM] does indeed speak with impregnable confidence and faultless intonation, although (despite the claim of my fan guide that he has an IQ of 148) his occasionally baffling syntax gives the impression that he is channelling Joey rather than Chandler."

Many fans are angered by the writer's remark and commented, 

On the other hand, there are some who didn't find the writer's comment offensive. These fans stated, 

What are your thoughts on 'The Times' article on BTS?
