BTOB fans known as melodies are also deemed for being one of the most peaceful 'fandoms' but they urged for an apology this time to clear the K-pop group's name out of any claim. A melody tweeted, "Ive been a melody since 2017 and as far as i can remember this is the first time we demanded an apology and make it trend. That's how hurt and mad we are. Yes you apologized but why censor BTOB. Spell and apologize properly. Be sincere. Please." A fan pointed out, "Melody is not used to trend such a hashtag for demanding apology. Even our fanbase usually didn't give a shit to this kind of thing. But looking at how Melody united defending BTOB that means some of you really crossed the line."
