ARMYs have decided to step up in an effort to protect their favorite group as BTS‘s Jungkook finds himself in the middle of a surprising controversy.
Previously, Jungkook began making headlines for participating in “false advertising” with his brother’s clothing brand, Six6uys. The controversy arose when netizens found out that the BTS member was not only sitting as a director of the company, but he was also frequently photographed wearing clothes from the brand in different BTS-related activities.
This led to a surprising controversy, as the BTS member began to receive criticisms for his “under-the-table” advertising. Jungkook officially resigned as the director of his brother’s brand following the scrutiny, but one netizen recently took it a step further by filing a report to the Fair Trade Commission against Jungkook.

Not even a full day following the ongoing situation, BTS fans have banded together to ask HYBE Labels to protect Jungkook from the backlash. #StandforJK has officially started to take over Twitter, as thousands and thousands of ARMYs begin to tackle the situation head on. So far, a total of 112,000 tweets have been made with the hashtag #StandforJK, proving the power of ARMYs.
One ARMY kept it short and simple, by stating that Jungkook “deserves better.”
He deserves better…..

This particular fan called out Big Hit Entertainment (now known as HYBE Labels) and asked them to “take action” against the “baseless, defamatory scandals.”
It took over a year and a half for JK to overcome the past scandals and for him to finally start doing solo vlives again. @BIGHIT_MUSIC are you going to let antis create baseless defamatory scandals against him and rob him of his happiness? Please take action. #StandForJK pic.twitter.com/C92gtYnfUU
