Jimmy Kimmel spoke about BTS appearing on his show and said, “You sang a BTS song on the show and I wonder what the fallout from something like that is because I know that. We have had BTS on our show and people are absolutely their fans, like they will camp out, and they are probably out in the parking lot, waiting for the next time they come on. They are absolutely crazed for these guys. You have to be careful with an ARMY because they could attack. After this, Ashley said that she is ARMY and Jimmy replied, “Then you won’t get attacked.”

An excited Ashley then spoke about how she performed to Dynamite and it was shared by BTS members RM and V on their Instagram accounts. She revealed that at the same time her body felt different and she thought she was going into shock. However, she said that after getting tested she was diagnosed with the Omicron variant of Covid-19. At this, Jimmy said, “Thought it was BTS fever? Oh, they are both are very dangerous. You are lucky to come out of those alive.”

Jimmy's comments on the group didn't go well with the BTS fandom. Taking to Twitter, fans shared Jimmy's clips and dropped comments. A fan wrote, "The audacity to say that about an Asian artist in front of an Asian woman. @jimmykimmel really compared BTS to COVID in the year 2022 and amidst all the anti-Asian hate."
