One Direction fans say #1DisStillTheBiggestBoyband after BTS get introduced as 'biggest boy band in the world'





BTS is getting introduced as the "biggest boy band in the world" and One Directionfans are not happy.

The K-Pop boy group is currently making history by getting invited to '2017 American Music Awards', and going on multiple American shows. The boys are making it big in America, in fact, they were even introduced as "the biggest boy band in the world' by Jimmy Kimmel and James Corden.





Even non-BTS fans are praising the group for their great achievements, however, One Direction fans are rather angry at the boys for "stealing" One Direction's title.

The hashtag #1DisStillTheBiggestBoyband started to trend worldwide on Twitter after BTS was introduced as "the biggest boy band in the world".

Angered One Direction fans commented, "A friendly reminder again that no one will ever ever be bigger than One Direction", "No other band will ever be as successful as 1d", "BTS is the biggest band in Asia but I'm pretty sure One Direction is the biggest worldwide even on their break." (via Allkpop)
