ARMYs have raised anger after seeing a fan’s lack of respect for BTS‘s V at a recent CELINE event in Japan.
On August 23, V attended an event in Japan for CELINE. From the minute the idol stepped out of the car, V couldn’t help but greet all the fans who had waited for him.
Even in photos, the smile on V’s face was undeniable as he greeted all the fans waiting.
Even while he was in the shop, he couldn’t help but interact with fans.
매장밖에 있던 아미들이 태형이 보고 소리 지르니까 태형이가 손으로 쉿 하면서 소리 낮추라구 ㅠㅠ 그럼서 또 다정하게 양손으로 흔들 흔들 인사해주고 가슴에 손 얹어 마음 전해줬어

While V was obviously enjoying interacting with fans, ARMYs raised anger after noticing the behavior of one person in the audience as the idol was leaving the CELINE store. As V was walking back to his car, it wasn’t surprising that the idol was wary as he was walking through the huge crowd of fans.
However, ARMYs shared their anger as a video showed that while V was nearly in his car, someone in the crowd tried to grab the idol’s hair.
When the video was posted, while netizens understood that fans were excited to see V, they needed to remain respectful toward the idol, especially when he seemed eager to interact with the crowd throughout the event.
please don't do this ever again. Trying to grab taehyung's hair is never okay. You can tell he is so happy seeing his fans but keep it respectful 🙏 pic.twitter.com/P2Uw8GxOHH

when you have the chance to see taehyung in real life you DONT automatically have the permission to touch his arms, his hands or his hair he’s the sweetest man ever and if he can he will be the one to come near and greet you shake your hand or whatever https://t.co/zMJUsQ1amn

While it’s not surprising the fan wanted to get close to V, there should be boundaries, and it could’ve easily been very dangerous for the idol.
