Netizens are stormed with anger since the news broadcast aired. News anchor Kendis Gibson is said to have belittled and degrade superstars BTS.
Kendis Gibson, a news anchor for ABC news, is under fire from ARMY’s all over the world. While covering the BTS speech to the UN, the news anchor is seen to throw belittling comments regarding BTS.
Take a look at the clip below :
As he introduces BTS, he comments that, “Fans are used to the boy spreading their legs like this”. As the clip goes on, towards the end of RM’s speech, Gibson throws a comment “That’s so poetic” in a sarcastic tone.
He also repeatedly states “It’s a boy band from Korea”, and ending the segment with an unnecessary comment. “They’ve got choreographed dance moves.” ARMY’s were not having that. Users tweeted about this incident, demanding an apology.
The reply to this comment says : “I am getting very angry this morning. Army’s, let’s unite. How can someone with ignorant thoughts like those be a news anchor? They must live their life being misinformed.”
I am not a fan of BTS but my friends do. Their advocacies are good. I watched the whole of speech by the BTS before UN Meeting. It is a shame that this anchor named Kendis Gibson threw VERY UNPROFESSIONAL COMMENTS on the said group. Disgusting anchor. https://t.co/KPJdKYb5SB
