TSA advises ARMYs who come to BTS concerts not to call the lightstick an “ARMY BOMB”

BTS' offline concert is about a month away. 

BTS will hold ‘BTS Permission to Dance on Stage’ concert on November 27~28 and December 1~2 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, USA. This is the group’s first offline concert in 2 years since ‘2019 BTS WORLD TOUR LOVE YOURSELF: SPEAK YOURSELF THE FINAL’. 

Prior to the concert, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) left a special request to BTS’ fandom ‘ARMY’ about refraining from mentioning their official lightstick’s name.

The notice posted on TSA’s Instagram account is as follows. On October 7th (local time), TSA asked BTS’ fans to call ARMY Bomb ‘lightstick’ instead. This is because airport security checkpoint staff who do not know the official name of BTS’ lightstick may misunderstand it as a bomb.

What’s interesting is that TSA announced this and mentioned the hit songs of BTS in the notice, including ‘MIC Drop’, ‘DNA’, ‘Dynamite’ and ‘Butter’. ‘#BTS’ was also attached to the hashtag, which caught the attention of ARMYs around the world.

Netizens showed reactions such as “I never thought I’d follow TSA’s account”, “The person who posted this seems to be a fan of BTS”, “I hope time flies faster”…
