The management of the BTS K-pop group, BigHit Entertainment released a statement after the decision of a Japanese station to cancel the appearance of the group.

The popular seven pieces were to be performed at the Asahi Music Station on November 9, but its appearance was canned, supposedly by a photo of Jimin wearing a T-shirt representing the atomic bombing of the United States during World War II.

In a long statement published in his official Twitter account and translated by a fan account of BTS, BigHit took responsibility for the mishap, since he condemned the war and apologized to those who the group could offend.

Jimin is believed to wear a shirt

It is believed that Jimin used the shirt last year (which had already been exhausted), with the first reading: "Patriotismo OurHistory Liberation Korea", and presents a photo of the cloud of mushrooms on Hiroshima and another image of the Korean people celebrating their independence Day of August 15, 1945.

While members were also assumed they used hats that represented the Nazi SS head of death and that they waited for flags on the stage that looked like swastika.
