German radio host compares BTS to COVID, apologizes after backlash Updated: 2021-02-27 13:50:15 KST

A Bavarian radio station apologized on Friday for their radio host's comment that likened the K-pop boyband BTS to the coronavirus.
During the host's radio broadcast on Wednesday, he described the South Korean boy group as (quote) "some crappy virus that hopefully there will be a vaccine for soon as well."
This has stoked anger among many internet users who called his comments racist and xenophobic.
The radio station issued a statement saying that his choice of words had gone too far but was in no way intended to be "offensive or racist."
