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.

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.
