When Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande for Best Pop Duo/ Group Performance award and people were expecting BTS. Social media went crazy, BTS fans started their campaign of scam on Twitter and launched Hashtag #Scammy to support one of the most popular K-pop bands in the world.

The band shared their emotions after not winning the Grammy, “We want to see Army now and I’m sure Army is feeling the same emotions we’re feeling, so we’ll be back with even greater music, good performances, and even better music.

So we’ll work hard for this next year as well and we’ll be back with great music and performances that you can look forward to.”

Reactions of BTS Army Fans:

On various microblogging sites, many BTS army members were frustrated with the outcome and expressed their emotions. Such as, “Bts doesn’t need the Grammys but the Grammys need BTS #scammys,”

“I don’t care about the #scammys but I hate that the boys feel like their worth is measured by their acknowledgment.”

Many of the fans though, that the English music industry doesn’t recognize or acknowledge the K-Pop and that’s the reason.
