With the admiration that Suga showed Taeyang, praising him and his band, Big Bang, for their legacy, some BTS fans got angry, claiming he had thrown them under the bus with the things he told the “Vibe” singer.
BTS, Big Bang Fans Defend Suga
Suga claimed that he and his fellow BTS members started their music careers after seeing Big Bang.
After that, a lot of toxic fans started to badmouth Suga to the point they were already asking him to leave the group.
In a series of posts on Twitter, one fan sarcastically thanked the idol for “setting up” his fans with “criminal stans,” referring to Taeyang and his other Big Bang co-members.
“Suga just gave the VIPs something to weaponize tbh. He was laying it on a bit too much,” another claimed.
A different fan accused Suga of being weird for talking that way to Taeyang and disrespecting the whole BTS career after saying Big Bang made BTS.
So to stop the hate, the VIP and ARMY have come together to defend Suga, making #ProtectSuga a trend on Twitter.
