This is why I hate living in America sometimes omg...go listen to your Morgan Wallen or whatever damn
Unfortunately this mentality is common, as you can see with the several controversies with media outlets, comic artists, etc, with their ignorance and lowkey racism against BTS, the entirety of KPOP and Asians in general.
And I believe it's probably gotten worse with the rise of COVID. So that's why I think BTS' rise is very impressive(esp in the West), because they've always gotten these type of labels pitted against them ever since their breakthrough.
I can guarantee they wouldn't be saying this if BTS were all white
"Just because I don't listen to it, it's not popular and doesn't actually exist." I fucking despise this mindset
