MOMOLAND is taking heat from ARMYs for their alleged “disrespectful” behavior toward BTS at 2018 MGA (MBC Plus x Genie Music Awards).
Outraged BTS fans have pointed two MGA moments in which they feel MOMOLAND behaved unprofessionally toward BTS.
MOMOLAND have been accused of laughing at Jimin‘s vocal mistake during BTS’s “FAKE LOVE” performance.
i always knew momoland are problematic but if ever they’re laughing at jimin then thats over the top gurl. like not bowing to ur sunbae’s? can accept that but laughing at someone who actually sang live & just made a mistake? bruh get to jimins lever first pic.twitter.com/eT6UhON2eJ

members of momoland were laughing and whispering to each other when bts were performing fake love at the mgas where the people fucked up the bgm, specifically jimins part. they really thought it was ok to laugh when jimin was so frustrated after performing. my blood is boiling pic.twitter.com/6axFirQe8S

MOMOLAND have also been criticized for not bowing to BTS in passing. When MOMOLAND were called up to accept the “Best Dance Performance” award, the members passed BTS and TWICE, their industry seniors, without acknowledging them the way these ARMYs feel they should have.

For days, furious ARMYs have been flooding MOMOLAND’s Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube accounts with angry messages, criticizing the group’s manners and talent.
Netizens, including fellow BTS fans, have called out these ARMYs for their hateful messages and hypocritical behavior.
It baffles me that the same people who promot ending violence and bullying then go on to say such rude and disrespectful things about momoland over an out of context video. They weren’t laughing at jimin. pls grow up and learn that both are humans + #MOMOLANDPROTECTIONPARTY

When Jungkook didn't clap for Red Velvet: "OMG you all are making a big deal out of nothing, Kookie was just tired, stop trying to find a reason to drag BTS!!!!"
When Momoland doesn't bow to BTS & Twice : "Disrespectful bitches being rude to their seniors they need to learn how

When blinks dragged Nancy because she didn't bow to blackpink y'all were Nancy's brothers and y'all attacked us
Today Momoland didn't bow to your faves and y'all dragged them, the hypocrisy and double standards jumped out
Ofc no one believe blinks but that's ridiculous

They feel that these ARMYs have gone too far, and are now coming to MOMOLAND’s defense.
According to netizens, MOMOLAND temporarily turned off commenting on their Instagram, possibly in response to ARMYs’ comments, but it has since been turned back on.

Many netizens are now encouraging ARMYs to support BTS with love and positivity, rather than by engaging in fan wars.
y’all just try and be positive and support bts instead of hating on momoland, they need our support the most rn k. we all know momoland is problematic so please just shut up about it and maybe tweet bangtan some sweet messages instead. thank you

100% agree. I love ARMY but there is no need to start fights were we could just deal with it civilly. I hate fan wars so much, I wish the ARMY who is starting fights, would just calm down and support bts instead of hating on MOMOLAND 💜💜💜 pic.twitter.com/aDSj7snp5h
