Japanese TV show axes BTS performance over atomic bomb T-shirt

BTS' planned appearance on "Music Station", a flagship music program of Japanese broadcaster Asahi, has been canceled, stirring up a whirlwind of controversy.

The design, which went viral and drew flak in Japan, includes a photo of Koreans celebrating liberation and a photo of an atomic bomb exploding in Japan. "We asked about the intention behind wearing that piece of clothing and discussed with the agency, but although unfortunate, after an overall consideration of the situation, we have decided that this appearance will be postponed".

BTS's performance on a Japanese TV show has been cancelled, amid controversy over a t-shirt worn by Jimin. The actual date of when the pictures of Jimin were taken is unclear.

Lee Kwang Jae, the designer of the shirt, issued a statement after learning BTS had canceled their trip to Japan.

There are conflicting reports about whether band member Jimin wore the shirt this past August or previous year to celebrate Korea's Liberation Day, but either way it's the imagery of the attire that's become the issue.

The shirt has since sold out.
