Upset over Kanye West not winning Album of the Year for DONDA at the 2022 Grammy Awards, legendary producer-engineer and frequent collaborator Mike Dean replied to a tweet from the Recording Academy. Responding with “Anyone” to the Recording Academy’s tweet that said “Name a group ~smoother~ than @bts-bighit, we dare you.”

Catching the attention of BTS‘ fan group, which calls themselves the “Army,” Dean received a heavy amount of backlash on Twitter. Dean went on to respond to some fans noting that the K-pop supergroup doesn’t write their own music and joked about potentially producing a song for them in the future.

Met with even more tweets after his remarks, Dean would go on to issue a series of apologies, highlighting his mistake of calling out BTS in anger.

Check out the tweets made by Mike Dean and his apology below.
