BTS discusses anti-Asian hate crimes and celebrates AANHPI Heritage Month with US President Joe Biden

The popular Korean Grammy Award-nominated band BTS will join US President Joe Biden at the White House on May 31 to discuss anti-Asian hate crimes and celebrate AANHPI Heritage Month. They discuss Asian inclusion and representation and address anti-Asian hate crimes and discrimination, which have become more important issues in recent years. BTS confronts Asian hatred with a strong emotional voice, followed by a massive reaction from the military to anti-Asian violence.

Biden previously talked about his commitment to combat the surge in anti-Asian hate crimes and signed the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act in May 2021. This provides law enforcement with the resources to identify, investigate, report and ensure hate crimes. Hate crime information is more accessible to the AA and NHPI communities. BTS V aka Kim Tae-hyun is the fastest to reach 25 million followers on Instagram and offers ARMY a sleepless night with frequent IG updates!

During the meeting, Biden and BTS will also discuss the importance of diversity and inclusiveness and the BTS platform as a youth ambassador to spread the message of hope and positivity around the world. Additional details to follow.
