On August 26, 2019, ARMY held their own award show for BTS during MTV‘s 2019 Video Music Awards. Twitter user @Highlight_Army created the show to, “speak out against gatekeepers in the industry”.

Although BTS won two of the five awards they were nominated for, fans felt that the group received unfair treatment by not receiving nominations in the major artist categories.

Did we mention the memes? Fans flooded social media with “Purple Carpet” moments that included “celebrities” like Downy, This Bag of Trophies, and the Han River!

Now, fans are taking a trip down memory lane, remembering the event that brought them together and gave everyone a good laugh!
