BTS fans, known collectively as the ARMY defended him by trending “YoongiWeLoveYou” worldwide on Twitter to combat the hate being directed at the 26-year-old.

His fans defended him from criticism and called on keyboards to stop being judgemental over the Boy With Luv rapper’s appearance.

Fans also gushed over the star’s chubby cheeks, with one Twitter user saying it was a sign that the band members were “eating well”.


The BTS members are currently on their first vacation since debuting in 2013 with the song No More Dream.

The group is expected to return to the music scene with concerts in Saudi Arabia and South Korea this October.
