A billboard for South Korean boy band BTS's Jeon Jungkook was removed from Gujranwala, Pakistan, for reportedly "promoting homosexuality." With the approval of the Chamber of Commerce, some admirers purchased the billboard for two days for the 24-year-old pop star's birthday party on September 1. The billboard said, "Happy 24th Birthday," and included a large photograph of the musician dressed in a black and white suit.

However, after receiving a complaint from a local member of the legislative assembly, the proprietor of the bulletin was obliged to remove it. 

Assembly candidate Furqan Aziz Butt stated that they got several complaints from the public and that there was a great deal of disturbance. He went on to say that there are young individuals in the city, and the organisation has a bad impact on them and pushes them to engage in inappropriate behaviour. He went on to say that they encourage homosexuality.

Inquiring about the billboard, he wondered why it was there given that they don't have a brand name or sell items here. He said that the guys who put it up were known as the Gujranwala army. Only the Pakistani army is present."

This is not the first time BTS has been chastised for "promoting homosexuality." Earlier this year, a Russian printing company refused to print images of the band for a café because it didn't want "children to become perverts." The removal of the billboard in Pakistan has infuriated the BTS Army.
