#RespectJungkook Trends As ARMYs Fight Back Against Abuse Towards BTS’ Jungkook
Why are netizens and fans of HYBE's BTS making the hashtag #RespectJungkook trend on social media? Find out below!
Just recently, ARMYs (the fandom name of BTS) have gone on to social media to make the hashtag #RespectJungkook trend. The reason why? Fans of the K-pop group are using this as a way to fight back against haters who have been mean and unpleasant towards BTS' Jungkook.
Acts of mistreatment from these 'supposed BTS fans' towards Jungkook were recently made viral via tweets. Specifically, hate towards the K-pop maknae began with his "Rainism" cover in 2017.

To shed more light on the unwarranted hate towards BTS' Jungkook, a small number of fans who supposedly label themselves as ARMYs believe that BTS should only have 6 members, casting out Jungkook.
never forget when armys trended for leave bts and started a ot6 moviment against him after rainism performance. he was still a minor, he took months away from sns, imagine how sad he was seeing all this? he don't deserve all this hate from his own "fans"#RespectJungkook pic.twitter.com/U7fD0cKNL3 — ⁷ (@mostsuccessfuI) April 26, 2022
K-pop idols are no strangers to hate, but BTS' Jungkook is still a human being who has previously shown that he does not take hate comments well. In the past, the maknae has even taken a break from social media after a plethora of insults against him were made, making ARMYs worried about the possibility of it happening again.
To fight the unnecessary hate towards BTS' Jungkook, fans made the hashtag #RespectJungkook trend, showing the K-pop idol how much he actually means to his fans. Some have even begun sharing reasons why the BTS maknae deserves to be appreciated.
Although fans have their own biases, showing hate toward a K-pop idol, or anyone for that matter is never something that should be done and hopefully BTS' Jungkook can see how much ARMYs are fighting for him.
