88Rising the media company that manages acts such as Rich Brian, Joji, and the Higher Brothers implied BTS was gay on a now-deleted Instagram post. In the post 88Rising puts together posts of BTS being affectionate towards each other like slapping each other on the butt while Rich Brian’s ‘History’ plays on the background.
@Issawidstan posted the deleted post which can be seen below along with some comments the video received.

The commenters caught on and jumped on BTS for being ‘gay’.
This shot seems pretty odd considering BTS leader RM sent out a shout out to 88Rising song Midsummer Madness which helped it get to the top of the Melon charts reports allkpop.

88rising’s Joji and Rich Brian even sent them a thank you for the tweet in this video.
It seems to me that 88rising is just taking cheap shots at BTS to garner attention. But do you want those crazy nutty BTS fans called the ‘BTS Army’ after you? So keep being edgy 88rising, it’s more entertaining than your music. While BTS keeps breaking records.
