...Hello. I saw your posts about the Jin Run episode thing, and I looked into it more and now I'm feeling very... tired? Watching the episode, I saw two friends joking around with each other, one realizing they had gone too far, an apology issued and accepted and they went on from there? I just... Am I missing something? I don't understand why this has blown into such a big thing when I've heard it so many times before from other members? Why now? You don't need to answer, I'm just confused rn.
I’m exhausted. I feel ya.
It’s blown-up because some fans are too sensitive or protective of Jimin. It’s ridiculous. They’re citing his past body conscious problems and saying Jin was cruel to say that to him, and while I agree that jokes about weight aren’t funny, it is amazingly obvious how biased some fans are.
BTS have spent years teasing each other over stuff like this. Jin has born the brunt of all ‘fat’ and ‘pig’ jokes for the longest time, and he’s done so with grace, he’s always let it slide bc that’s just the way he is. That doesn’t mean he didn’t feel hurt by it–just that he had the maturity to look past it.
But now fans are attacking him for turning the joke around on Jimin. And suddenly that’s going too far.
ARMY is going too far. Find some perspective. There are receipts, Jimin is no different from Jin or any of the other members who have called each other pigs or fat or chubby. They’re all best friends, this happened months ago. Calm down.
