BTS recently made their American television debut at the 2017 American Music Awards.
American singer-songwriter Rachel Platten couldn’t help but fangirl when she went up to congratulate them.
To celebrate the moment, she asked them for a photo and sat down on RM’s lap when posing.
RM was visibly shocked and looked like he had no idea how to react and simply froze, looking far into the distance.
While some fans aren’t sure Rachel Platten made the right decision in the photo op…
Okay but like why is Rachel Platten in namjoon’s lap like that’s just a little weird to do to someone you just met 🤔

Others believe she was sitting on the armrest, or that RM was smiling for another photographer, or that fans should recognize they’re from different cultures.
Please do not attack Rachel Platten
We have to think that she had no where to sit and asked them if she can sit on Namjoon&Jimin legs
Please understand that we all live in different countries and have diff cultures
We are the image of BTS!#BTSxAMAs
