Its shocking that BTS despite all their hard work and breaking the language barrier and domination at chart didn't get acknowledged by Grammy's. But ARMY lets show them that we are never affected by awards but BTS's dedication to their work and music#BTSDeserveAGrammy@BTS_twt

Living in Prejudices
Popularity and power can't offset prejudices.Grammy nominations don't get a singer to the top of his life, and singers don't go down the career path without being nominated.@BTS_twt #GrammyNominations pic.twitter.com/79vJhQVYx5

The BTS Army got to trend the Grammy snub so much that it began trending in different parts of the world on Twitter. There are even now more reports on how there is still no openness to accepting Korean pop. Grammy's snub of BTS has got more people talking. Singer Halsey who too was expecting a nomination also stood with BTS and made her stance clear.

deleting and ignoring all negativity. BTS deserved many nominations. I am however, unsurprised that they weren’t acknowledged. the US is so far behind on the whole movement. the time will come.
