Fans took to Twitter to express their gratitude to BTS and support as they venture into their new chapter as a group and as individuals.

it hurts to see them upset and trying to clean up things because their words were being twisted in the media when they were just being vulnerable with us. at the end of the day, all you need to do is trust bts. no one or nothing else in regards of this matter. just bts themselves

Official Twitter pages that have collaborated with the group have also been showing their love and support to BTS and ARMY. The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon posted a behind-the-scenes clip of BTS’s performance of “ON” at New York’s Grand Central Station.

One brand was just as relieved as fans about the group’s recent clarifications surrounding misconstrued statements during their 2022 FESTA dinner. It was none other than McDonald‘s!
The popular fast-food restaurant liked a tweet with a translation provided by @modooborahae from Jungkook‘s recent live broadcast. It was a translation from the part of the broadcast where Jungkook stated that BTS is not disbanding, they still have group activities planned and they will be filming more Run BTS.
McDonald’s?? Good to know you care! 😂 pic.twitter.com/kwOQy355mK

It seems McDonald’s had the group on their mind today, as they also liked a clip of the seven members hugging three years ago.
3 years ago, today, a group hug

McDonald’s previously collaborated with BTS to create the specialty BTS Meal last year.
They tweeted a cryptic message in April of this year that fans hoped meant a return of the meal, which included a medium Coca-Cola, McNuggets, and fries with Sweet Chili and Cajun dipping sauce.
They also previously tweeted their support for BTS ahead of their Permission To Dance On Stage performance in Las Vegas.

Fans have been wondering if the increased references to BTS are a sign that another BTS Meal could be in the works. We’ll have to wait and see!
