One Direction fans defend Niall Horan after getting bullied by the BTS Army

The BTS ARMY is at it again.

Diehard fans of the South Korean k-pop boy band recently ganged up on singer songwriter Niall Horan over Twitter after not being able to listen to BTS’ new song ‘Dynamite.’

A Twitter user who’s part of the ARMY asked Horan if he had heard the song already and Horan was seen replying with “No I haven’t.”

This was apparently enough to drive BTS fans to bash the singer by posting a lot of negative comments on Horan’s tweet. Most of the tweets also compared BTS to the accomplishments of One Direction.

This led One Direction fans to defend the singer on his behalf, saying the comments were totally uncalled for. 

One fan commented, ARMYs are dragging Niall Horan simply because he did not pay attention to Dynamite and he’s being referred to as racist and plenty or different phrases. C’mon what the precise hell? and Niallers, OT5, OT4 and Directioners his birthday is coming in just some days dragging artists is not actually healthful.”

Another makes the case that Horan was just being honest: “Don’t expect people to have the same music taste as yours. We were born to be different.”
