BTS\' New York concert cut short & hi-touch event canceled after gun threat
ARMYs in New York for BTS\' show tonight had an amazing time, but unfortunately the event wrapped up in confusion and frustration. Everyone in the audience couldn\'t help but be confused when the concert was abruptly cut off at the end - there were no goodbyes and only one encore song, and the boys had not performed either "Dope" or "Heungtan Boys" as everyone had been expecting.
Even more shocking for the fans, the hi-touch event as well as the photo-op were canceled, leaving some in tears as it was an event they had been so looking forward to. Currently, it is rumored that all fan engagement events for all 4 USA stops have been or may be canceled.

The concert staff announced that they had no choice but to make this decision for the safety of the members and all the fans in attendance. Although nothing is currently confirmed, it is highly likely that the cancellation and the abrupt end of the concert happened due to a gun threat on
She was allegedly contacted by one of the Best Buy Theater venue staff, and initially insisted that she had been hacked and it wasn\'t her who posted the initial gun threat.
However, later on she changed her words to say that she had been joking, or "trolling", and that she had not been at the concert venue, or even in the USA:
More confirmation that the gun threat was the reason for this whole situation came from the announcement about the cancellation of the Hi-Touch event in NYC, where fans were told that due to "
very recent and serious developments concerning the safety of the members of BTS", the Hi-Touch will have to be canceled:
As her tweets spread like wildfire and ARMYs found out what had happened, the prankster deleted her Twitter along with her tweets.
As if to say bye and apologize for the abrupt cancellation, the BTS members have posted selcas and videos thanking New York fans. Most importantly, they seem to be alright.
Hopefully many will learn through this situation that a joke such as this one is not always taken lightly, and may prove to have sad consequences for everyone else.

Way to make us American fans look bad! How in the world should a death threat be taken as a joke whether they are idols or not. Grow up!
Talking about someone dying is not something you should be joking about. taking someone\'s life should never be a joke wtf. that girls wasn\'t even a bts fan to began with ugh.
I want to apologize for this situation, and I really hope that bts knows that not all of their international fans are like this. A big amount of us cares about their health and safety. as long as i know that they\'re alright, then so am i. all these death threats are being sent to rap monster and instead of hating on him, we should help educate him that what he said was wrong in a kind matter. rap monster does not deserve all this hate and he honestly deserves the world becase he\'s such a great guy.
Seriously people...when did the term black become racist calm ure asses down. He didn\'t offend the African American community or even talked about them. In the asian culture they use black or dark instead of tan when their skin color changes..
The word black doesn\'t exclusively belong to African Americans, who are not even black but rather dark brown, so stop being offended and special every time someone says black.
Rap monster doesn\'t have time to be racist to ya\'ll dumbasses he\'s got money to make and a life to live.
Wow, (I didn\'t want to say this but..) what a bitch. Joking on a death threat, gal need some sense knocking into her brain. Nam joon isn\'t right with his choice of words either but this girl went too far.
Don\'t need to call that lil girl bitch. Maybe stupid or immature.
@xeerrreex ya like I said I didn\'t wanted to say it but that\'s what I came to my mind first. I agree, stupid and immature are better words.
People in this world think that this kind of things are joke ... But why is she surprised if she get a lot of hate? I don\'t know her , but I hope that her geography teacher will speak with her , bc she doesn\'t even know where she lives .
This is totally absurd. What\'s worst is they may decide to not even come back to NYC for another concert thanks to this moron. Saying something like this isn\'t a joke.
We don\'t even know if their going to do their concert in Dallas tomorrow
not that Allkpop never reported why Rap Monster has been getting so much hate
YES EXACTLY like obviously what he did doesn\'t deserve death threats but why aren\'t they reporting on the actual cause of the problem in teh first place
I don\'t even hate Rap Monster he\'s cool and awesome
I hate how she wants to say it\'s a joke. Like it may seem like a joke to her but in America jokes about threatening to shoot somebody is scary. I feel bad for all the fans that went to that concert because they probably spent $200 dollars for that concert and the hi-touch event. And now they probably have to get their money back (if they let them). She may not know this but there have been lots of shootings in America and that\'s why they cancelled the hi-touch events just to protect everybody and BTS. I understand what Rap Monster said was wrong but is really necessary to threaten his life. How do you think his family, his company, his members and the fans would feel if Rap Monster is gone. That girl needs to be punished and she needs to apologize to all the fans, BTS, and their company for threatening Rap Monster\'s life
And now all of us Army\'s are apologizing to BTS for what happened. Now all of us have to suffer, everyone is apologizing to BTS and I know they are hurting on the inside. They try not to show it but we all know that they are crying on the inside.
How bout we find her and kick her ass with a toy pistol and then say *no hard feelings, we\'re just joking.*
"I live in the UK...I live in Ontario...I don\'t even live in America..."
Who does this bitch think she is?? Seriously it saddens me that cos of her JUST ONE FREAKING IDIOT, the whole ARMY fandom were apologizing on behalf if her behavior. fucking retard.
I love this brave girl...she just want to get rid some fake and arrogance nugu..
Too bad we can\'t do the same to trolling snatch like you.
the heck.. Threatening someone especially with a gun, is in no way shape or form "a joke".

Something is wrong here.. she says she\'s from the UK but then she says she\'s from Canada. Wtf? Am i missing something?
She is from Canada because she turned on her location when she posted those tweets.
How is this in any way, shape, or form considered a joke? A threat is NEVER a joke. I am embarrassed and ashamed that she is a Canadian being one myself. Maybe now she ruined the possibility of BTS ever touring in Canada for the rest of us SANE Canadian ARMY\'s. She is a disgrace and something needs to happen. A death threat is a criminal offense and she should be held accountable. Maybe then she will learn the difference between what a joke is and isn\'t.
That\'s what I said she has a problem of telling the difference between a joke and a threat
I just saw the interview video from BTS in Melbourne on Youtube.
Look at Jungkook\'s face in the video. He seems mad.
Don\'t try to stir up shit because of your apparent ignorance of the Korean language. And NEITHER JUNGKOOK OR V were mad. When someone has very dark skin due to spending time in the sun WE say black not tanned. So don\'t even bother going there. Every Korean that posts here will come to his defense.
@bangeryun94 I understand you want to defend him, but what he said deserve an apologize. I saw the video many times and Jun\'s face looks obviously disappointed when Rapmonster said those words.
@xeerrreex I was actually there and Jungkook looks like he always looks. Ramon also said he wanted to burn his clothes when he first met him because he looked like a farm boy. Sorry but you\'re not going to win this. He did nothing wrong and he\'s not going to apologise just to appease western mentality and their delicacy over the word black.
@bangeryun94 You keep talking about western people, but even some Koreans didn\'t like what he said about the other members.
