KEY POINTS

  • BTS was invited to the 76th United Nations General Assembly in New York City
  • James Corden made fun of BTS and their fanbase on his talk show
  • After the backlash, the video was deleted from YouTube

The Army, known for being a group of hardcore fans of South Korean boy band BTS, took to Twitter Tuesday to slam James Corden for making fun of the group's fanbase.

"The Late Late Show With James Corden" host often invites BTS members to his talk show and is known for having a good rapport with all the members including Park Ji-min, who called Corden "Papa Mochi."

However, things didn't go well with the fans when Corden made a series of jokes about BTS' recent trip to the 76th United Nations General Assembly in New York City on Monday. In the video, the 43-year-old host also made fun of the U.N. for inviting the boy band to the event.

"The United Nations General Assembly kicked off this morning in New York City, and it started with some pretty unusual visitors. BTS was there," he said in the video.

"BTS visited the U.N. Although lots of people are saying why are BTS there, the world leaders have no choice but to take BTS seriously," Corden continued.

"BTS has one of the largest ARMY on the planet Earth," he added. "Historic moment. It actually marks the first time that 15-year-old girls everywhere found themselves wishing that they were Secretary-General António Guterres," the host concluded.

Corden referring to the fanbase as "15-year-old girls" and mocking BTS’ presence at the event triggered fans to slam him on social media.

One of the fans shared the clip that sparked the outrage and wrote, "FOR THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW WHAT'S UP WITH JAMES CORDEN," the fan captioned the clip.

Another fan shared a photo reacting to Corden's comments and wrote, "James Corden really just came and called us all 15-year-old girls unprovoked."

One fan shared a "friendly reminder" for the late-night host.

Another fan wrote, "James Corden, as a teenage girl myself I just want to take a moment to say leave us alone. I’m not brainless for liking a boy band, and neither does me liking a boy band invalidates their achievements. Stop using my gender and age as a way of mocking other people and what they do."

One fan agreed with the tweet and replied, "Well said. James just stereotyped us in front of national TV.  James Corden really messed with the wrong fandom. Shoot I’m 18 and have loved BTS for 5/6 years now. The fact he called BTS 'unusual' for attending the United Nations just speaks volumes."

After the severe backlash, the video was taken down from the talk show's official YouTube channel.
