Comedian Limmy ‘locked out of Twitter account’ after starting war with BTS ARMY

Limmy and BTS
Comedian Limmy has claimed he was locked out of his Twitter account after ‘annoying’ the BTS ARMY.
The 44-year-old called the fans of BTS an ‘evil cult’ after he disappeared from Twitter, a week after he trolled fans by branding the K-pop stars ‘stupid’.
On 14 July, Limmy – real name Brian Limond – tweeted: ‘BTS look f***ing stupid. Their hair is stupid and so are their clothes. The same goes for their stupid f***ing fans. #stupid’, after he was warned that their fans could be ‘dangerous’.
Limmy went on a flight to Glasgow following the post but the ARMY spotted the message and hit back, with the comedian later tweeting: ‘Did I get cancelled while in the sky? Any big news?
‘Carnage in the replies while I was above the clouds. Good, good.’
The following day, Limmy tweeted: ‘I initially tweeted my criticism of BTS for a laugh, knowing very little about them. Their fans criticised me, but I don’t care.

‘But you know what? I checked out BTS, and they’re actually REALLY GOOD! Really talented singers and rappers, and amazing dancers!
‘Sorry, I got mixed up. When I said BTS are actually really good, I was in fact watching the BACKSTREET BOYS, who actually ARE talented singers, rappers and amazing dancers.
‘Whereas BTS are NOT. They look and sound awful, plus they MIME. It’s all PLAYBACK and FAKE.’
Uh-oh. In the words of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman – big mistake, huge.
Limmy’s final tweets were on 15 July, and he remained silent until today (22 July) when he returned to claim that the BTS ARMY got him locked out of his account.

 In a video, the Scottish star said: ‘My name is Limmy, and I’d like to apologise to the BTS ARMY. Recently I made a tweet that got quite popular and annoyed a lot of BTS ARMY, BTS fans, because I said BTS were stupid and their clothes were stupid and their fans were stupid. I don’t really know
BTS, I just said it for a laugh. I’m 44 years of age, I’m a dad, I don’t know about these things.
‘I’ve really annoyed a lot of you – I’ve annoyed you so much that you’ve managed to get me locked out of my Twitter account. It’s really important to my career that I can be on Twitter and on social media, and it’s really hurting things for me.
‘So I want to apologise. I’m still locked out of my account at this time, and during that time, it gave me time to watch some BTS videos and you know what? I think they’re really, really talented, I love the dancing. I love the singing, fantastic.’
He added: ‘I was wrong, what I said was wrong. I didn’t mean any harm, I’m just an old man. Please leave me alone.’
However, Limmy followed up his apology by video by calling the BTS ARMY an ‘evil cult’, alleging fans reported a number of his old tweets that contained swear words.
He wrote: ‘I’VE DELETED ALL MY OLD TWEETS SO I CAN NOW TELL YOU THE TRUTH. THE BTS ARMY IS AN EVIL CULT. THEY SCOURED TWEETS OF MINE GOING BACK YEARS AND NEARLY GOT ME BANNED.
‘WIPE YOUR TWEETS BEFORE YOU TAKE THEM ON. THEY’LL GET YOU BANNED FOR CALLING A MATE A C***. EVIL CULT.
‘IF ANY MEMBERS OF THE EVIL CULT BTS ARMY REPLY TO THIS, SAY NOTHING, JUST SEARCH THEIR TWEETS FOR THINGS LIKE “C***” AND “KILL” AND “DIE”. EVIL CULT.’
Limmy added: ‘I COULD HAVE BEEN THE BEST BTS FAN IN THE WORLD. BUT THEIR FANS ARE EVIL.’
It is unclear which reported tweets got Limmy suspended from Twitter, but a number of ARMYs tweeted about ‘ignoring’ the comedian, while others came for him in his replies.
The BTS ARMY are known for being one of the most devoted fanbases in K-pop, if not music in general, with the fandom regularly raising money for charity in the band’s name and celebrating the Fake Love singers by buying billboards and advertisements.
Self-professed celebrity ARMYs include John Cena, Khalid, the Jonas Brothers and Shawn Mendes.
BTS – made up of RM, Jimin, J-Hope, V, Suga, Jin and Jungkook – are currently in Korea taking a break from promo after the release of their album Map Of The Soul: Persona and their sell-out gigs at Wembley Stadium.
