BTS members were quite impressed when President Joe Biden played them their hit summer single Butter during her visit to the White House last week. In a video shared by POTUS, Biden performs her song Butter to make them feel at home. Joe Biden posted the video to Instagram and wrote, “It was great meeting you at the White House this week @bts.bighitofficial. The rise of anti-Asian hate crimes requires all of us to stand up, speak out and not harbor hatred. Thank you for everything you do. It’s important.” When the BTS members heard the song, they were over the moon and J-Hope even tried to do a little exercise.
Joe Biden told the septet that there has been a recent escalation of hate crimes against Asians in the United States. “Hate only hides. When good people talk about it and say how bad it is, it goes under. People care a lot about what you say and what you do is good for all people. It’s not just your good talent. It’s the message you are communicating. It is important.”
BTS leader RM (Kim Nam-joon) thanked Biden for signing into law a recently passed law to end the country’s Covid-19 hate crimes. “We would like to sincerely thank you for your decision to sign the Covid-19 Hate Crimes Act into law. So we just want to be a little help and really appreciate the (efforts) of the White House and the administration to find solutions,” he added.
RM also took to Instagram and also shared several photos of himself outside the White House.
Meanwhile, BTS will release their anthology album Proof on June 10th, just ahead of their debut anniversary. The anthology album will contain their old hits as well as some new ones.
