Howard Stern, Show Listeners Call Staffer ‘Racist’ for Linking BTS and Coronavirus



-The racist staffer brought up the South Korean band BTS and the staff when talking about the coronavirus, stating that they might be carrying it. Apparently all Asians are the same... (RMFE). The recent coronavirus outbreak has brought up overt racism from both Westerners and Europeans against Asians.

-"Stern then pointed out that BTS are Korean (not from China where the current outbreak was first identified) and co-host Robin Quivers weighed in with her view: that BTS and their team “are touring all the time” (in fact, the band had been splitting time between the U.S. and Korea this past month) and producer Gary Dell’Abate noted that “every celebrity who walks through the [SiriusXM] door is traveling all over the world — not just Asians.”

-"Throughout the career of BTS, the group and its individual members — RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, V, Jimin and Jungkook — have had to weather more than their share of close-minded comments and xenophobic remarks."
