On February 7, the semifinals of the men's 1,000m short track speed skating race took place at the Capital Indoor Stadium, Beijing, China.
However, Hwang failed to advance to the finals as the referee gave him a controversial penalty for making a late passing.
Those rulings, including the one for another South Korean skater Lee June-seo, allowed Chinese skaters to advance to the finals and win both gold and silver medals.
RM simply shared a short video of Hwang Dae-heon entering the finish line, captioned with clapping and thumbs-up emojis on his personal Instagram.
That must have angered some Chinese citizens as they flocked to BTS' official Instagram account and left malicious comments that include some offensive words and emojis.
It seems like they have gone to BTS' account instead, as RM's personal account only allow comments from people he follows.
In order to drive out the hate comments, BTS' fans worldwide have been commenting hundreds and thousands of purple hearts.
Meanwhile, the Korean Sport & Olympic Committee (KSOC) lodged its official complaint with the chief referee, the International Skating Union (ISU) and the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
