ARMY knows that the South Korean boy band BTS shares an amazing relationship with television host James Corden. But recently, Corden’s comments on the K-pop group have fetched him criticism from ARMY. The band boys recently delivered a speech at the UN General Assembly’s Sustainable Development Goals Moment and also performed Permission to Dance at the Assembly hall. After three years, the band returned to New York to attend the session as the special presidential envoy for future generations and culture.
Corden joked about Bangtan Boys’ UN trip and said, “The United Nations General Assembly kicked off this morning in New York City, and it started with some pretty unusual visitors… BTS was there. BTS visited the UN… Although lots of people are saying why are BTS there, the world leaders have no choice but to take BTS seriously. BTS has one of the largest ARMY on the planet earth. Historic moment. It actually marks the first time that 15-year-old girls everywhere found themselves wishing that they were Secretary-General António Guterres."
Corden's statement had made the ARMY quite upset and they want him to remove ‘Papa Mochi’ from his Twitter bio which refers him to BTS. One user wrote, “1. It wasn’t “unusual" for BTS to be there. They’ve been 3 times. 2. They weren’t “visiting". They were Presidental Envoys who were invited to speak. 3. Teen girls are valid, innovative, smart, & set a lot of trends although we aren’t all teens or girls," while another wrote, “Thoughts about that James Corden clip. Firstly calling fans a bunch of 15 year old girls is extremely sexist. It’s a phrase meant to belittle and invalidate women’s interests as less than. BTS has a diverse fanbase in ages, gender and race because they have value and substance."
Take a look at how ARMY reacted to Corden's comment -
For the uninitiated, during an appearance on the ‘Carpool Karaoke’ segment, James asked the members about their nicknames. Jimin said he was known as ‘Mochi.’ He even dubbed Corden ‘Papa Mochi,’ while the latter called him ‘Baby Mochi.’ Within no time, James changed the official name of his show to “The Late Late Show With Papa Mochi” on Twitter.
