An Argentinian vice presidential candidate’s old X post in which she said the name of boyband BTS sounded like “a sexually transmitted disease” has recently gone viral, angering the septet’s fans worldwide.

Far-right politician Victoria Villarruel on Feb. 11, 2020, made the comment in response to another X (formerly Twitter) user who said the band's name sounds like the name of a health insurance company.

The 48-year-old politician's comments at the time were met with angry tweets from BTS’ loyal fanbase known as ARMY. Noticing this, she tweeted a follow-up post mocking the fans on the same day, “If I knew they were going to jump like that for a pink-haired Korean, I would have started sooner."
