ACCESS released their interview with MONSTA X on December 10th, only to receive a backlash from the K-Pop community. They interviewed MONSTA X during the 'iHeartRadio Jingle Ball 2018' event at Madison Square Garden in New York City; however, due to their rather untactful questions to the group, many fans ended up being displeased by the interview.
With MONSTA X being the first K-Pop group to perform at Madison Square Garden, it ended up being rather disrespectful when she asked how they were making history when Jooheon stated that they were making history. Thankfully, I.M spoke up clearly that they were making history by being the first K-Pop group to perform at Madison Square Garden. Additionally, the interviewer also ended up losing favor with those watching by abruptly bringing up BTS' achievement of being nominated for a Grammy. A lot of netizens commented that while BTS did achieve something great, the question had no place in the interview with MONSTA X.
The displeasure felt from the netizens were further increased upon the interview being titled 'Monsta X Are So Excited To Learn BTS Got A Grammy Nom'.
