ARMY Protests about Louis Vuitton Video Commercial
Realizing that Louis Vuitton commercial video lacks one member of their beloved BTS, ARMY tweets their protest on Twitter.
Regarding the issue, ARMY protests that Louis Vuitton video leaves out BTS (V) Kim Taehyung. It shows only six members of the BTS Kpop boy group. Furthermore, they tagged Louis Vuitton’s official Twitter account, @LouisVuitton, to remind the brand that BTS has 7 members. And all of them are Louis Vuitton’s brand ambassadors.
Hello, @LouisVuitton . BTS consists of 7 members, not 6 and you have included only 6 members in your clip, leaving Kim Taehyung aka BTS V out. Please include him in the clip. It’s a humble request. Thank you.— ᴾᵉʳᵐᶦˢˢᶦᵒⁿ ᴄʜᴜᴜ⁷ ᵗᵒ ᴰᵃⁿᶜᵉ (@Chuu_3009) July 9, 2021
Hi! @LouisVuitton. You have 7 ambassadors, but there’s only 6 in this video. So please we kindly ask you to fix it, and that you add ‘Taehyung’ (BTS V), because he is also a BTS’s member and one of the ambassadors. Thanks. pic.twitter.com/jpp6yfSB0c— ᴮᵁᵀᵀᴱᴿNhung♡ (@nhung_302) July 9, 2021
Up to this point, there has been no response from Louis Vuitton about this issue. And ARMY keeps reminding by posting BTS (V) Kim Taehyung’s part of the Louis Vuitton commercial video on Twitter.
