Former BP RaNia member Alexandra shared her thoughts on the recent controversies involving BTS.
On November 13, Alexandra shared a series of tweets defending BTS on the controversy surrounding alleged Nazi symbolism in a 2015 photo shoot, and the controversial liberation shirt.
"To try to give some perspective-while living in Korea, I saw clothes with APPALLING statements & symbols & even asked people- oh my gosh do you know what that means? The answer was always an honest "no" and they looked BAFFLED and HUMILIATED when I explained.
I'm seeing a lot of comments saying they can't accept that such a widely known symbol was a mistake- but trust me... with the things I saw... it makes sense. And the apology accepting full responsibility is everything. It's the only way to erase ignorance and heal the world.
Idols don't have control at the end of the day but they still take the heat when something awful happens. I trust if anyone there had known, they would have spoken up because their message is and always has been LOVE and ACCEPTANCE. Thanks for the apology."
Meanwhile, Big Hit Entertainment has issued an official apology on the issues.
