Considering Jimin’s appearance was a surprise, ARMYs were shocked when a Jimin and Jungkook fansite updated, posting photos from V’s fanmeeting.
The fansite posted a few photos of Jimin at (V)ICNIC. Yet, one caught the attention of ARMYs due to its intentional crop. It was clearly a photo of both V and Jimin, but V’s head was cropped off.
This crop was so personal some fansites are really shameless 🤣 pic.twitter.com/z3PRwO9HVA

ARMYs were disappointed that a cute photo of the two BTS members was edited to remove one, and many felt it was disrespectful, especially considering it was V’s fanmeeting that they were at. So, ARMYs called out the fansite for cropping V out of the picture.
Pjms and jokers always have a problem when it comes to taehyung, my boy didn't do anything to u, why are you even crop him, I get it that's jm fansite but is that really necessary to crop Jimin's favorite friend? https://t.co/u6xT47L4hD

Some pointed out that although the fansite cropped out V, they still had to have bought albums to secure a ticket. Yet, they wondered how the fansite could get in and how they knew Jimin would be there in the first place, sparking concern.
this non taehyung fansite surely bought a ticket from somone, but the sickening thing is how they knew that jimin is attending :/ glad my boy enjoyed his fanmeeting and @BIGHIT_MUSIC you will crumble https://t.co/Pisww6Fh3J
