It all began after a student mentioned BTS during a live class. In a video from the class, the teacher is heard saying, “Hey, hey BTS fan,” while talking to the fan. The teacher continued, “If you don’t have food in your home, BTS won’t come to cook for you. Just heard songs of the guys who put on lipsticks and dance to the songs. You all become happy just by listening to their songs.”
“Let’s see BTS ARMY today. There’s no use in studying when you are a BTS fan,” he said. He further talked about fans discussing BTS in the middle of his class and sarcastically called them ‘cool.’ “If you weren’t a girl, I would’ve grabbed your collar and slapped you. Your cheeks would’ve been swollen so much that you wouldn’t be able to say ‘BTS’…I would’ve punched you so hard your nose would start bleeding,” he also said in the video.
Reacting to the video, a fan wrote in a tweet, “This is absolutely disgusting. A teacher publicly thre8tening to physically assau!ta student just because she is a BTS ARMY.” “This is so disgusting. I’m going to throw up. I fear for this student’s mental and physical well being,” added another fan. “My sister was taking the same class, she told me this thing, the way he reacted is absolutely disgusting. But what actually happened was, a girl wrote who’s bts army here, in live comment section which was meant for questions and doubts only, everyone started commenting,” claimed someone else on Twitter.
