Jimmy Fallon And Benny Blanco’s New Video Receives Intense Backlash From ARMYs

A recently posted video on Jimmy Fallon’s talk show The Tonight Show’s social media accounts has received pushback from BTS fans.


The video, which features Jimmy Fallon and Benny Blanco, the producer of BTS’s “Bad Decisions,” shows the two eating a purple cake with the BTS logo on it. The caption also mentions the official handle of the group.

Since its upload, the video has garnered over 975,000 views and thousands of comments, many of which were ARMYs expressing their disapproval. Their main point of contention was that the video seemed to be milking BTS’s name for engagement without practically having anything to do with them. Many also brought up the mistreatment singer Umi received for addressing ARMYs in a tweet promoting her tour after working with V and felt that it was hypocritical that Benny and Jimmy seemingly got a “free pass” while she was “harrassed.”

so this is ok but yall will harrass u/mi lmao. sure https://t.co/i0dU4BeZTt

More disapproval came in layers, with many finding these two celebrities’ imposed association with BTS troubling because of their controversies. Jimmy Fallon, as many netizens have pointed out, is a staunch supporter of Zionism, an ideology that is receiving global criticism amidst Israel’s onslaught on civilian lives in Palestine, especially in the Gaza Strip. Pro-Palestinian and Palestinian ARMYs have mobilized in multiple ways in the past few months, asking HYBE to divest from Zionism. Some also brought up an incident of an ARMY being racially profiled for their hijab at Fallon’s show when Jungkook was promoting his solo album.

“omg taika’s gonna be on jimmy fallon ofmd promo” he’s literally a zionist please stand the fuck up i beg

For Benny Blanco, however, the objection is two-fold. His support of Zionism aside, Blanco recently faced scathing criticism for allegedly posting pedophilic content of his own child on social media. In 2022, he posted multiple questionable videos of his toddler, including a completely nude video of him.

Benny Blanco is receiving backlash for posting inappropriate kid’s n*des, talking about and touching their private parts on TikTok.

In light of this situation, many ARMYs have voiced their discontent as they felt them mentioning BTS in the video was disingenuous.

Aren’t you all going to Make them delete the twt like you all did with UMI ?? Isn’t this a Clear Clout??? Him using bts name to promote his Zionists pedophile Azz when they are not related in any way to his album ??? https://t.co/KiXPcsIYrK
