I just skimmed through and all artists, not just us, do not like people like that. All fans and ARMYs may or may not have monitored this person, but I will sue on behalf all the those who got hurt or did not have the courage to do so.

After seeing the response from V, the YouTuber posted a message through his community tab.
Breaking news) V has mentioned my channel on Weverse and has seen my videos. He shouldn’t have said that he could earn ‘snack money’ as that will just make it harder for him, but that’s just V for you. How much bigger will this channel get? This is the one and only YouTube drama channel that world star BTS watches.
On the other hand, Big Hit Music made an official statement back in September about the situation of legal action against malicious commenters. They stated, “We are continuously taking legal action against those who post malicious messages that contain defamation, insult, sexual harassment, false facts, and malicious slander about BTS.”
