Earlier this week, on the 7th of December, Red Velvet's maknae Yeri went on to update her personal Instagram account with a series of photographs that featured her enjoying her day.

Red Velvet Yeri's Instagram update was praised by personal fans and ReVeluvs (the fandom name of Red Velvet) as her elite natural visuals were on full display. To keep it simple, Yeri captioned her photo with a sweet smiling emoji with hearts.

But it seems as though not all netizens and fandoms were happy with Red Velvet Yeri's caption, more specifically some members of BTS's fandom, the ARMYs.

As Red Velvet Yeri's Instagram post was well-loved by her fans and most netizens, a handful of ARMYs showed not only their certain dismay but also dropped disrespectful and negative comments on the Red Velvet maknae's post.

On the same day, BTS's Jungkook also posted Instagram updates on his personal page, and his fans were not happy seeing Red Velvet's Yeri use the same caption as him. Some went on to comment rude messages, and others even accused Yeri of absurd things.

Accusations such as Red Velvet's Yeri wanting to be connected with BTS's Jungkook were only among a few of the negative comments Yeri got on her post. 

Following the seemingly random attack on Red Velvet's Yeri, her personal fans, ReVeluvs, and fans from other fandoms went on to defend the "Psycho" singer, scolding the ARMYs for their toxic behavior.

Notably, not all ARMYs or personal fans of BTS's Jungkook condoned the negative comments as a respectable number also called out the ones who posted malicious messages on Red Velvet Yeri's post.
