Right now, BTS is being banned in a series of countries all over the world?
While Turkey accused BTS of threatening traditional values, in russíα, promoting BTS has already been prohibited because it’s claimed to be a part of LGBTQ+ propaganda, which is said to have a negative influence on youngsters.
Okay, let’s talk about the golden maknae first. Jungkook’s birthday was just celebrated on 1st September, and this special event was in full swing because millions of fans across the world tried to show their love towards their idol.
Of course, Pakistani ARMYs are no exception. To celebrate the male idol’s birthday, they purchased a mαѕѕive billboard featuring Jungkook which was supposed to be up for about two days at a busy intersection in Gujranwala, Pakistan.
Looking at the billboard, Jungkook was so formal and manly in a black and wнιтe suit, right? More carefully, fans went through the Chamber of Commerce’s permission before hanging it publicly.
Sadly, a few hours later, the billboard was taken down because people believe it’s promoting homo̾s̾e̾xuality.
Specifically, after getting lots of complaints from the residents, Furqan Aziz Butt, a Punjab Assembly candidate, asked the owner of the billboard to take it down immediately.
This official directly criticized BTS for harming the country’s youth, saying that: “There are many young people in our city, and this group (BTS) has a bad influence on them. They encourage the young to do wrong things and promote homo̾s̾e̾xuality.”
This incident immediately shσcked not only Pakistani fans but also international fans. They got hurt by the sudden decision and claimed what the official stated was unfounded.
“A politician just come up out of nowhere and says that BTS is promoting homo̾s̾e̾xuality and spreading vulgarity. BTS has never used vulgar verses in their songs. They just encourage self-love and happiness”.
Following that, the hashtag #PakistanLovesBTS quickly went trending on Twitter to show fans’ love towards the boy band as well as their disappointment about the unєхpєctєd incident.
