Response From the YouTuber
At the same time, the referred YouTuber posted a response in a community to BTS V’s intention of taking legal actions against them. Furthermore, the YouTuber announced that BTS V has watched their videos and mentioned the channel. According to the YouTuber, mentioning ‘snack money’ will only make it harder for V, but that’s just who he is.
“Breaking News! BTS Kim Taehyung (V) has mentioned the name of my channel on Weverse. He has also watched my videos.
He shouldn’t have said ‘snack money’ because that’s just going to make the suit more difficult for him. But that’s just V for you.
How much bigger will this channel possibly get? This is the YouTube drama channel that the world star BTS watches: the one and only.”the malicious YouTuber response.
