The incident was reported by a Russian news publication, which obtained the story of the “PinkyPop” cafe. The owners of PinkyPop asked the printer for posters and stickers of the BTS and Stray Kids boy bands. They planned to distribute them to customers ordering coffee. Shortly after making the request, the cafe owners were ignored by the print shop.

After inquiring about the lack of communication, cafe owners received fanatic messages from the printing press, asking:

“Do you want your children to become perverts?” ”

The store also added that it was,

“Stupid to support something that will leave you with no grandchildren. ”

Supposedly, the owner of the printing house saw the photos of BTS and Stray Kids and assumed they were from the LGBTQ + community.

Many fans of BTS, Stray Kids, and the K-POP community in general have come together to support PinkyPop Cafe and condemn the printer’s actions. Fans have called these ideas “ignorant” and “obsolete”.

Meanwhile, the owners of PinkyPop have apparently moved on, going business as usual.
