It seems that content creators are becoming bold in targeting the world’s biggest boyband to date, BTS. After their fans, ARMY dealt with the infamous Sojang; they are now on a crackdown to spot problematic antis who create malicious content against the members for profit.
Dave Disci Vlogs is currently trending on ARMY Twitter and not for the right reasons. With a following of over 262,000, the videos that show when you search for his channel will only be BTS content, and most of them are on the negative side.
His latest video targets vocalist Park Jimin that alleges singer Lizzo exposed a video of his same-sex relationship. His other contents range from BTS’ relationships being exposed, tattoos, and such. He even claims that G-Dragon hates Jungkook, causing the member to cry.
As reported by KDramaPharma, BigHit commented that Sojang’s content “exceeded reasonable and acceptable boundaries of expression and personal commentary.” These words are also applicable in this case with Dave Disci Vlogs, wherein he makes content and profit by creating rumors that are becoming severe as time goes on.
ARMYs have expressed that they accept BTS and support them no matter what. They trust that BTS will open up and, if not, accept their boundaries. However, they do not want content creators to create false allegations to malign the members’ characters. For example, the YouTuber defending himself that the basis of his video of Jungkook being in a same-sex relationship and BigHit “allegedly” confirming everything being BTS Run episode 92.
ARMYs have stated that they continuously reported Dave Disci’s channel on YouTube. However, they haven’t done or expressed any intention of working on it, further causing them to distrust the streaming platform. They are also reporting this to BigHit Music and HYBE in hopes that content creators would finally get the message that the companies are serious about protecting their artists.
And maybe BTS can get that snack money too.
