Talk show host accused a Korean boysband BTS of looking like an LGBT group


The host of Mexican talk show Farandula 40 Horacio Villalobos has come under fire after he joked, that K-pop group BTS looked like female truck drivers or LGBT tourists lost in the Mexican city. Villalobos also said that the group – made up of Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, Jungkook and Jin – looked like they have just escaped from a gay bar. One Twitter user, tagging the chat show, wrote that it was xenophobic, absurd and disgusting to suggest that the men were gay because they had bright concert suits on for the award show. “It was never our purpose in our fashion section of Farándula 40 to offend fans of #BTS or anyone. If so, we offer you a sincere apology,” the TV host wrote on Facebook the following day. The group told Ellen DeGeneres on her show in May that their appearance at the Billboard Awards was a “dream come true.” BTS – formed in 2013 – have released three studio albums. As well as Love Yourself: Tear, the other two are Dark & Wild (2014), and Wings (2016).
