At first, I wasn’t going to talk about this only because I wasn’t entirely sure of all the details surrounding this. The reason behind the threats is still largely speculation. It seems many people think that this all started after some unflattering comments Rap Monster made in an interview a little while ago about V and J-Hope being “too dark” and that he “couldn’t see them” because of it, kinda upset some people.
It got particularly bad in New York recently. It was reported that the entire event got cut short due to a gun threat.
The person, who hasn’t been identified and is only known by a possible made-up name on twitter (account has since been deleted) was not deterred in the slightest and made a new threat yesterday.
“HAHAHA PEOPLE THINK I’M TROLLING FOR ATTENTION, I AIN’T TROLLING I’M AS SERIOUS AS CAN BE, BYE BYE RM #TRBinMexico”.
There’s no proof that this is even the same person who made the original gun threat or that this person was at the event.
I actually saw those tweets and read some of the responses yesterday before it just became ridiculous. The photo that this person used was actually an old photo of a gun that was circulating a while back. The original photos were linked to something entirely different. However, the accounts and tweets have been deleted but everyone is still wondering if there will be a concert in Mexico. I can tell you now, there hasn’t been any word that there won’t be. The only thing they’ve said they’ll do is just make sure there’s extra security.
Right now, there’s just a lot of speculation and not much concrete proof. But thankfully, security isn’t taking any chances. Hopefully it’s all just a really horrible prank.
It really is in bad taste to threaten someone’s life, regardless of who they are, as a “joke”. It’s not funny.
