#ApologizeToBtob: What actually happened?
BTOB performed “Blue Moon” with G-IDLE’s Miyeon on Kingdom. Apparently some of the G-IDLE fans assumed that BTOB did not tell Miyeon that Peniel from the group would hold her hand at the end. The trouble started after the performances when G-IDLE fans accused BTOB of sexual harassment involving Miyeon. BTOB had a livestream where the group talked about the adlibs at the end of their performance. Holding Miyeon’s hand and leaving the stage was in the original script. BTOB apologized to her for not being able to notify the changes in the performance related to the adlibs but also praised her for the quick response she gave to the adlibs.
After this several hashtags like BTOBdisband were trending on Twitter. Following the false accusations, BTOB fans started demanding apologies from the ones who disrespected the boys and the hashtag #ApologizeToBtob started to dominate the charts. After realizing that wrong accusations bring a lot of disrespect towards the accused, G-IDLE fans have now started to apologize to BTOB.
