Roman Kemp apologises to BTS fans after receiving threats over 'twisted' comment

Capital Breakfast presenter Roman Kemp has apologised to BTS fans after they felt he insulted the K-pop band’s new song featuring Nicki Minaj.

After playing ‘Idol’ on his radio show last month, Kemp was heard saying: “That was BTS and Nicki Minaj, that noise you were just hearing there.”

Co-host Vick Hope replied: “That song. Oh Roman, please, I didn’t say anything.” Fellow presenter Sonny Jay then added: “I thought there [were] construction workers outside.”

Kemp has since taken to Twitter to apologise to anyone he may have offended with his comments.

In an apologetic series of tweets on Tuesday (October 9), he wrote: “The comments I have made have been widely twisted and labelled as something that they are not. I will accept 100% responsibility if some of the views I put across have been deemed offensive and to those I can only apologise. No offence was ever meant.

“It’s never my intention to garner negative energy for anyone let alone within the world of music that I love so dearly. However comments have started to now be aimed toward not only myself but my family and loved ones, I would please ask for this to stop.

“I am sorry to anyone who may have been offended by any comment I have made toward BTS. I ask all BTS fans to know in their hearts that I have never thought anything negative of the band nor would I wont to stop the joy of spreading music.”

Since the controversy, Kemp has arranged to get BTS on the show and clear things up.

In another recent Twitter post, Kemp revealed that an interview with the band will air on Wednesday (October 10) from 6am.
