I am an America First-er but I do not blame America's problems on minorities nor do I want to exclude them over some idiotic notion that they are "polluting" our culture.
BTS, a massively popular K-pop group, may have just alienated a giant fan contingent in Japan.
The controversy started when BTS member Jimin wore a t-shirt favorably depicting images of atomic bombs being dropped on Japan at the end of World War II. That image is complemented by words celebrating the subsequent liberation of Korea.
Korea, both North and South, shares a fraught history with Japan. The country imposed heavy-handed colonial rule over the region up until its defeat in WWII, and relations are oftentimes tense. Those memories are indeed fresh in the minds of many Koreans, with cross-border hatred frequently popping up.

But it goes both ways on the Japanese side, especially when it comes to the alt-right in Japan. The situation was quite similar in the Balkans in the early 1990s, when Serbian nationalism led to ethnic cleansing after the Soviet troops left the region. The peace is barely kept in East Asia because of the presence of US troops in both countries, which prevents Asian nationalists from getting out of control. Recently, a K-pop band member was photographed with an anti-Japanese t-shirt celebrating the atomic bombing, which seems to be quite normal in Korean culture.
