The 2019 Billboard Music Awards were one of the biggest events for BTS and ARMY.
During the red carpet portion of the event, BTS were posing for reporters when suddenly American Singer-Actress Sofia Carson showed up and asked,
“I’m gonna join in with you guys if that’s cool?”

The boys welcomed her and she put her hands on J-Hope’s shoulder, they took some photos together.
However, some fans were not happy with her actions, some criticized her for her actions and the way she invaded the boys’ privacy and touched J-Hope’s shoulder which made him uncomfortable, others called her out for seeking attention using BTS, there were also others who took the chance to make fun of the entire situation.
Check out some of ARMY tweets:

sofia carson or whatever tf her name is was so rude to just jump on someone else’s picture. It wouldve been funny if she was friends with bts but they looked at her like who tf are u miss

love that bts is getting the attention they deserve but some ppl are really riding on their fame w/out any genuine appreciation for what they do.
bts didn’t build an empire for low-class, privacy-invading ppl out for clout.
sofia carson, end ur career. pic.twitter.com/bXDpKzAnqb
