Hate Comments Flood The NBA’s Post Featuring TXT
TXT are currently on their 2023 ACT: SWEET MIRAGE World Tour. They have been performing in the United States, with their most recent show in New York.
Their world tour is not the only exciting event happening in the U.S. right now. The NBA (National Basketball Association)’s playoffs are underway as teams compete to qualify for the 2023 NBA FINALS.
Celebrities are endorsing the upcoming event, including TXT. The members visited the NBA and posed with the legendary Larry O’Brien Trophy.

The NBA also posted a group photo of TXT on the official social media. The members each wore a different team jersey customized with their names.
Not only did the NBA include a cute reference to TXT’s song “Crown,” but teams the Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors commented in support of Hueningkai and Beomgyu, who sported the respective teams’ jerseys.
Yet, the NBA fans were not nearly as supportive and welcoming as the NBA itself. In fact, as soon as the photo was posted, NBA fans flooded the comment section with hate comments.
The majority of hate comments were homophobic, transphobic, sexist, etc. Some were also racist and derogatory toward Koreans.
MOAs (TXT fans) are attempting to spread positivity in the comment section to counteract all the hate.
Similarly, TXT’s labelmate BTS‘s Suga, who is the NBA’s official ambassador, attended the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Golden State Warriors game in L.A. and was posted on Instagram. Netizens were not kind to him either.
