ARMYs Demand Apology From German TV Station For Slandering BTS
Recently, ARMYs were upset about a German TV show called Chartshow on RTL that aired a segment showing a BTS music video.
The commentary for the segment slandered BTS and used racist terms against them. Fans sent numerous messages to the show demanding an apology statement on the matter.
The segment reveals people asking if they are a Japanese group or from North Korea. They also comment saying that they are Japanese albinos with fans that are probably younger than 12 years old.
Watch the clip below:

RTL later posted an apology Tweet that read, “If the #BTS fans feel offended by the comments from the people on the show we are sorry. RTL positions itself against racism AND for freedom of expression.”
Falls sich die #Bts Fans durch die Kommentare der Promis in der #Chartshow beleidigt fühlen, tut es uns leid. 😔 RTL positioniert sich ganz klar gegen Rassismus UND für freie Meinungsäußerung.

Fans were still not pleased and the show released a second apology Tweet was posted.
We can only apologize again and will cut out the comments in the repetition! #bts #chartshow
Wir können uns nur nochmal entschuldigen und werden die Kommentare in der Wiederholung rausschneiden! #bts #chartshow

ARMYs posted messages in regards to this matter, agreeing that some people will just not understand the world of K-Pop and BTS.
Unfortunately this is just how it still is here. Either the people don‘t know BTS at all or they view them as teen band and fabricated superstars with no personality whatsoever. The problem is that media doesn‘t write about them and if they do, they don‘t get their facts right

why so much noise , it brings only negative reactions. it was shown and everyone forgot it immediately. they know so little about kpop and don't understand it, but even though i know a lot about kpop, i think that 99% of them are like robots and don't have their own opinion.

Basic reactions of people who know nothing but their own little world. Average people who look down on what they don't know. I know the boys can break this barrier bc they are awesome.

Thats exactly the problem,they have matured in what they believed,racism and particular concepts and even though they should have flexibility,not many have it.
the new generation i.e teens and young adults however are more accepting to diversity,change and breaking boundaries,
