BTS fans apologize to Mexican talk show for mocking Jungkook
Despite the growing popularity of kpop internationally, it still happens that some foreign media outlets are disrespectful towards idols, sometimes going as far as mockery and even racism.
On March 8, a Mexican program called “Qué Chulada!” became the focus of ARMYs after he was accused of making fun of Jungkook.
On the talk show, the hosts reportedly poked fun at Jungkook and discussed his two-hour live stream on Weverse on March 4.
Jungkook took the time to interact with his fans, cover songs, react to J-Hope’s “On The Street,” and even leave the camera on while he slept, giving ARMYs another unforgettable memory.

Fans appreciate Jungkook’s live broadcasts as they are an example of how BTS takes the time to interact closely with fans, but the talk show poked fun at how drunk Jungkook appeared during the broadcast.
In particular, the show poked fun at an event between Jungkook and the fans. At one point in life, Jungkook spoke about the people waiting for him outside his gym.
Although he thanked them for supporting BTS, he kindly asked not to follow him when he practiced. Fans praised the maknae for their courtesy and willingness to resolve the issue.
But on the talk show, the host trivialized the issue, suggesting Jungkook was “attacking” fans for preventing him from doing basic things like going to the gym or walking down the street.
Once, a host called a staff member playing the role of “Mexican Jungkook.” The employee was also interviewed by her and asked if he had been drunk during the concert and if he was against “harassment” by ARMYs.
“Que Chulada!” even shared an Instagram story that includes the mocking interview clip with the caption “Our Own Mexican BTS”.
After watching the show and story, fans got angry and started trending #APOLOGIZETOJUNGKOOK and #RESPECTJUNGKOOK on Twitter.
Additionally, many blame the show for using Jungkook to attract viewers. As a result, the TV show’s rating dropped from 75% to a staggering 1%. The ARMYs also denounced the animators’ dubious professionalism.
- “The lack of professionalism is unacceptable. It is something fundamental for human beings, it is the respect that is learned at home, there is still time. »
- “They will clearly show their lack of professionalism by mocking themselves and not apologizing. You have to accept your mistakes in order to grow personally and professionally. »
- “Apologies to JUNGKOOK and be professional, do your research on the subject before you send it. An artist deserves respect, and invasion of privacy is no joke. »
