On the heels of Mike Dean going to war with BTS and the K-Pop group’s Army of fans, Joe Budden looks to be next to step up to the plate. During Wednesday’s (April 6) episode of The Joe Budden Podcast, Budden took aim at the boy band following their Grammy Awards performance.
“I hate them BTS n-ggas,” he said matter-of-factly before being asked for a reason why by his co-hosts. “Do I need a reason? I hate them n-ggas. I hate ’em. I don’t have to divulge my reason to but I just hate them n-ggas. I don’t want to hear that shit, I don’t want to see you come down from the sky in a little umbrella.”
Budden went on to assert his belief the group was from China instead of South Korea and then compared the K-pop sensations to being an Asian knockoff version of NSYNC.
“I know they big and I know it’s China but I don’t want to see it,” he continued to throw shade. “I don’t want to see Korean-SYNC.”
The BTS Army immediately filled the replies of Joe Budden’s Twitter offering up some tracks he should get hip to by the boy band. Mike Dean eventually apologized for his trolling ways, but we’ll see if Budden waves the white flag in the future on his BTS take.
