ARMYs are handling it maturely by charting albums. And BTS is not the only one who was snubbed, other fandoms are angry as well. Making fun of ARMY or criticizing them is stupid and pointless. ARMY are actually making a point: Grammy as worldwide awards are still US-centered. No Asian representation, minimal African and European representation. US labels are quick to sign the contracts with K-pop groups because it's beneficial but when it comes to acknowledging the genre/industry they're silent (or conveniently create a kpop category). Xenophobia at its finest. ARMY are doing a good job at voicing out their concerns. And the results are visible: media outlets called out the xenophobia in American music industry many times this year. Mostly because army were vocal. It's the first year when I witness something like that. I'm actually anticipating the next year's award shows and nominations because all of this can really change something. Of course, the changes are slow but the K-pop fans who mock ARMY right now should feel ashamed. Some people used to mock 'paper' Top Social Artist BBMA two years ago. And look at the top social 50 chart right now. It's mostly occupied by K-pop bands.
