The Chases star Anne Hegerty is under fire for her rude remarks against BTS.

On Sept. 24 KST, The Chases star Anne Hegerty posted a tweet, saying, “All this about a little Korean boy band that’s fundamentally not important?” which went viral (in a bad way) on Twitter.

This remark was made after BTS’s speech at the 75th UN General Assembly was released. At the time, The Economist senior editor Anne McElvoy wrote “Please No” in response to the news, which sparked a hot debate. McElvoy later apologized for her remarks, writing: “My earlier tweet about BTS was in jest and I’m sorry it was taken the wrong way. Apologies.”

However, Anne Hegerty answered to the post with her problematic response, enraging the ARMY around the world, as well as many Asians who felt the discrimination in her writing.

Here are some of the responses.
