Ariel Winter had to learn a very important lesson about hashtags by making an innocent fandom mistake on Twitter this week. BTS fans, of course, are watching #BTS very closely for the latest news about the K-pop group — so Ariel really threw off the ARMY with one of her latest tweets.
The sitcom actor wanted to gives fans a heads up about her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show so she posted pictures of herself backstage of the show on Twitter. She captioned the pictures with “#BTS of filming @TheEllenShow today .” But though she meant “behind the scenes” it didn’t take long for people to remind her about another meaning for #BTS.
Fans began giving her tips about the popular hashtag for the future. One person replied, “Hey, you may want to type out Behind the Scenes. The tag above links directly to BTS the KPop group…” Another fan tweeted a funny prediction with, “Army's coming in 3... 2... 1…”
The tweets must have helped because Ariel followed up her first tweet with, “I meant behind the scenes not BTS the group Hahahaha .” Fans were pretty understanding about the confusion. One replied, “It's ok, for the longest time I thought BTS were "between takes" lol.”

It’s unknown whether Ariel is a fan of BTS but if not, maybe she'll try out their music now. It seems like a match made in heaven given the young actor is often promoting self-love on social media. BTS recently gave a speech at the United Nations about this very subject.
“No matter who you are, where you're from, your skin color, your gender identity, just speak yourself ... Like most people, I've made many and plenty mistakes in my life,” said RM in front of the United Nations. “I have many faults, and I have many more fears, but I'm gonna embrace myself as hard as I can, and I'm starting to love myself gradually just little by little. What is your name? Speak yourself. Thank you very much.”
