Say it isn’t so – The boys of BTS (방탄소년단) just got robbed, y’all!
Despite the groundbreaking success of their hit song “Dynamite”, the K-pop septet ended up not bringing home the award for Best Pop Group/Duo Performance. For those who are wondering, the trophy went to “Rain On Me”, performed by Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande.
Naturally, a lot of die-hard fans of the idol group (widely known as ARMYs) didn’t react too kindly to the final result. Many of them took to Twitter and trended the hashtag “#Scammys” (combination of the words scam and Grammys) to vent their disappointment. Other hashtags namely “#LightItUpBTS” and also “#BTSOurGreatestPrize” also became a trending topic online soon after the announcement was made.
“Rain on me? Really? I’d rather drown. Anyway get Dynamite to 1B!! #Scammys,” a fan wrote on Twitter. Another loyal ARMY chimed in by saying, “BTS doesn’t need the Grammys, but the Grammys need BTS. #Scammys.”
Take a look at some of their reactions here:
In response to that, the members then took to Weverse to leave beautiful supportive shout-outs to the fandom. Jin was the first to post, where he said, “ARMY, I love you, ai lav u”. J-hope also wrote the same message as his fellow teammate, while Suga assured loyal supporters of the group by stating, “Let’s work harder this year.” RM also wrote, “ARMYs are the best!”
Fans were also reminded of RM (real name Kim Namjoon)’s touching comments prior to the event. The group leader said, “Whether we get the Grammys or not, we already got what we wanted, and we want you. So that means we got everything.”
Not long after that, Jungkook also posted an update on social media, thanking fans for their never-ending support. “Thank you so much for being together with us in each and every of the moments. We will make sure to repay you for your love and support,” the maknae (youngest member) of the group expressed.
Better luck next time, BTS! 💜
