Mike Dean may have shown his frustration inappropriately and angered one of the biggest fandoms in the world, ARMY. The American record producer has responded to a series of tweets on Twitter disparaging global K-pop phenomenon BTS.
Apparently Mike was disappointed as American rapper Kanye didn’t win Album of the Year at the 2022 Grammys and unleashed his anger via social media.
The 64th Grammy Awards, also known as music’s biggest night, invited global superstars from all over the world to attend the awards ceremony. Decked out in the latest designs of the season, world-famous singers and actors graced their presence on the Grammys red carpet and stunned the world with their styles.
The evening was made memorable with outstanding performances from prominent artists such as Justin Bieber, BTS, Lady Gaga, Olivia Rodrigo, Silk Sonic, Billie Eilish, and more.
‘I was crazy about album of the year’: Mike Dean apologizes for trolling BTS
The 2022 Grammy Awards took place on April 3 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. The awards show saw some of the best performances in music history, from brilliant lights to epic costumes, with singers from different genres putting on a remarkable show.
While the night was victorious for some musical acts, it was also disheartening and disappointing for others who didn’t pick up awards. Fans and celebrities alike were disappointed with hits or albums that didn’t win a Grammy. Nevertheless, both parties showed their support and the artists promised the fans to try harder and do their best.
Meanwhile, Mike Dean seemed a little put off when American rapper Kanye failed to win album of the year at the Grammys. Instead of dealing with the loss in a mature way, he lashed out and made derogatory remarks on social media. It all started when the Recording Academy, The Grammys, tweeted about K-pop sensation BTS. It said:
“Name a band that’s smoother than BTS. We challenge you.”
To whom Mike tweeted:
As soon as BTS fans, known as ARMY, caught wind of Mike’s comments, thousands of angry fans filled in his mentions on the post and attacked him virtually, calling him rude and inappropriate. .
Soon, Mike responded and doubled down on numerous tweets, asking BTS fans to leave him alone, and then questioning the band’s credits and songwriting history.
“Team Travis and Kanye. Get those BTS fans off my dick.”
He continued to criticize the K-pop boy group:
“It’s funny to read so many armies saying that BTS members write ‘90% of their music,’ according to a statement made by a BigHit employee. Haha, there’s no way the members BTS have written 90% of their music. Just check the writing credits of each BTS album.”
Mike Dean finally ended up apologizing to BTS for what he described as an innocent trolling comment after his partner made him feel bad about what he said. He posted a series of tweets asking fans to calm down and that he meant no harm.
Some fans are still upset by Mike’s pointless remarks on the Recording Academy, the Grammys’ Twitter post. Although the K-pop boy group has not reacted to the incident, time will tell if American producer Mike Dean and BTS will team up to produce new music in the future.
