Joe Budden has been criticized for assuming the K-pop group BTS originated in China

Joe Budden has drawn criticism after mistakenly assuming Korean boy band BTS originated in China.

In a recent episode of The Joe Budden PodcastThe 41-year-old American media personality said he “hates” BTS and mistakenly said they are from China.

“I hate them BTS n****s,” Budden said. “Do I need a reason? I hate them n****s. I don’t have to tell you my reason, I just hate her.”

“I don’t want to hear that shit, I don’t want to see her dance, I don’t want to see you fall into the sky in a little umbrella,” he said, referring to the band’s Academy Awards on Sunday (April 3).

“I don’t want to see it [you]…come out of the audience and connect like Voltron and do all the 98 degree moves. I don’t want to see any of that shit.”

“I know they’re big, I know it’s China, I don’t want to see it,” Budden said, after which his co-host Parks Vallely told him they were Korean. “I don’t want to watch Korean sync.”

Soon after Budden’s remarks, BTS fans, aka BTS Army, criticized him for assuming the group’s background.

“Did Joe Budden really just say that BTS is from China? Man if you wanna chase someone at least do your homework first,” wrote one fan.

Another fan added, “Not Joe Budden hates my boo’s (Nam-Joon) BTS group for no reason and then goes on to say they’re from China.”

He also replied to a fan who called him assuming BTS was from China.

“Why do men always bother us with their unintentional (racist) stupidities?” the tweet read. “You said you hated them for no reason and you called them Chinese, how’s that a music opinion?”

Budden responded and said: “Oh stop it I made a mistake and got it corrected… and then I played a white boy band lol Foh.”
