HomeLatest NewsDisney+ Censors BTS In “PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LA”



Disney has been known for its family-friendly content and products, but now it appears the company is censoring some of its music videos. Specifically, “PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LA,” a music video by BTS, has been edited due to references to drugs and alcohol.

While Disney stated that the video was censored for “general audience safety,” many fans are unhappy with the decision and feel that Disney is punishing BTS for daring to break the mold and experiment with their music.

While Disney may have had good intentions in censoring the video, it may have also caused backlash from fans disappointed in Disney’s decision. Overall, it is an interesting case study of how technology can affect content and how companies must weigh consumer sentiment when making censorship decisions.

Disney Censors Korea’s Pop Star Bang

Disney is known for its animation films and its theme parks. However, recently Disney has been in the news for censorship. In “PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LA,” Disney censored one of the Korean pop stars, BTS.

BTS is a seven-member boy group from South Korea. They have amassed a large social media following and released several hit songs in South Korea.

Disney censored one of the members of BTS, Jimin, in their new upcoming animated film, “PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LA.” Disney claimed that his dancing was too suggestive and potentially offensive to some viewers. Jimin’s dancing in the film consists of twerking and hip-shaking movements similar to those popularized by the famous American rapper Justin Bieber. Bieber has been criticized in the past for his suggestive dancing. Disney claimed that some viewers could find Jimin’s dancing offensive and potentially inappropriate for children. Disney has come under fire for censoring content in its films. For example, Disney refused to release “FINDING DORY” in China because of scenes that involved a fish.

Fans Boycott Disney Entertainment Over Response to BTS Censorship

Disney has become notorious for censorship lately. Earlier this year, the company removed references to homosexuality from its upcoming film “Permission to Dance on Stage – LA,” which caused a wave of backlash from fans. Now, Disney has censored one of the most prominent K-pop groups in the world, BTS.

BTS is a seven-member South Korean boy band that has amassed an immense worldwide following over the past few years. The group recently released their new album “Love Yourself: Tear,” which topped the global charts and received widespread critical acclaim. However, Disney has decided that one of the songs on the album is inappropriate for children and has requested that the song be edited or eradicated.

Fans of BTS are outraged over Disney’s decision and are boycotting the company’s products in response. Many have called on Disney to stand up to corporate censorship and support its musical artists. So far, Disney has not responded publicly to the boycott, but, likely, they will soon cede to fan pressure and remove the song from “Permission to Dance on Stage – LA.”

Why Fans Are Boycotting Disney Entertainment

Disney has been known for years for censoring any references to relationships between boys and girls. Recently, they have come under fire for their decision to censor BTS’s “PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LA” performance. The performance was initially planned to feature the Korean boy band dancing on stage with Disney stars such as Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, and Selena Gomez. However, shortly before the performance was set to take place, Disney reportedly requested that the group refrain from any physical contact onstage.Though the request may seem innocuous on the surface, it has caused a stir among fans of the group who believe it is a direct attack on their sexuality. Many have taken to social media to voice their displeasure with the decision, organizing boycotts of Disney products in protest.Disney has yet to respond publicly to the accusations of censorship, but it is clear that they are not backing down quickly. This stand against BTS could portend more significant changes within Disney’s policies towards LGBTQ+ individuals as they try to appeal to a more diverse audience.

What Happened When BTS Appeared on “PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LA”?


Disney has been known for family-friendly content, but that changed earlier this year when the Korean boy band BTS appeared on the show “PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LA.” The episode featured the group dancing to their hit song “DNA.”Unfortunately, Disney decided not to air the episode in America due to a curse word in one of the lyrics. The term is translated as “screw,” and Disney felt it would be inappropriate for children to hear it.

Fans of BTS were upset by the censorship, and many took to social media to voice their displeasure. Some have even started a petition calling for Disney to reconsider its decision not to air the episode.

While Disney has yet to respond publically, they may be reevaluating their decision since ratings for “PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LA” has been low overall. If the show does not improve viewership, Disney will likely choose to air the episode in America at some point.


Disney has censored BTS in their newest movie, “PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LA.” The Korean boyband was initially scheduled to perform at the end of the film, but Disney decided to remove them due to complaints from some parents that their children were too young to see such explicit content. In a statement released by the band, they acknowledged Disney’s decision and said they are still grateful for everyone’s support.

Unfortunately, Disney chose to censor BTS this way, as it sends the wrong message about good body image and healthy relationships. However, I am encouraged by how outspoken the band has been about this issue, and I hope that other large companies will follow their lead and start supporting K-pop bands instead of censoring them.
