ARMY & Netizens angry at Anne Hegerty's "little boy band" comment about BTS

AKP STAFF

BTS fans are furious at Anne Hegerty.

Earlier, Anne McElvoy, a British journalist who is the senior editor of The Economist, commented "Please no" after Reuters reported that BTS delivered a speech at the 75h U.N. General Assembly. After facing harsh criticism from ARMYs, she quickly wrote, 

ARMY was not buying it, and the controversy continued, which led Anne Hegerty, an English television quiz personality, to comment:

Fans became even more furious, pointing out just how important BTS was to some peoples' lives. They also pointed out she was being racist by calling them 'little'.

What do you think about what's happening?

I don’t think what she said was racist, that’s just her shtick. She says that stuff about a lot of things, but at this point i am absolutely not surprised the tween armys on twitter attacked her. If someone so much as says one bad thing about bts, it’s over for your notifications. Even though most armys on twitter are very racist themselves, but like to act all high and mighty.


Also fyi this woman has autism, so she may not understand the implications of what she’s saying or realise it could come across as racist to some people.
