It was previously reported that BTS Suga attended LA Dodger’s game, he met with star pitcher Ryu Hyun Jin.
Suga happily shared a photo of his meeting with the star pitcher to BTS’s official Twitter account.
Another photo was also posted by ESPN, a popular American sports media outlet. Despite fans being initially happy that ESPN gave Suga a shout out they became furious seeing some of the people’s comments on the photos which could only be described as racist sexist comments.
Here are some of the comments in question:

ARMY were extremely upset about these tweets, they defend their Suga posting many tweets introducing people to him and listing his accomplishments.
Here are some of their tweets in defense of Suga:
You get to speak about what America likes? Lord help us all! Your ignorance is ASTOUNDING. This is the top ranked Boy group in the world and they have an audience that is not just teen girls. But since your xenophobic you wouldn’t know. How bout you stay in your lane and sthu? pic.twitter.com/8xCLZeUBUS

Can’t stand some of these replies. Just goes to show how closed minded some people are. I’m glad Suga from BTS is enjoying the game. Pretty sure he met up with Ryu, a fellow Korean, before or will after the game. He deserves the rest after BTS sold out all their stadium tours.

For open minded people actually curious, this is Yoongi (stage name Suga) a rapper and producer of BTS. BTS are here for their stadium tour, perf at the Rose Bowl, he has a mixtape called August D. Check it out for rap/hip hop. Check BTS discography for a ride range or genres

It amazes me how ppl in America don’t know them whem they’ve just won so many awards there, recently performed at the BBMAS, done sold out concerts, but here in my country, where they’ve never come, practically everyone has heard of them. Do Americans have one mindset or sth?
