Luxury fashion brand Louis Vuitton is under fire for an oversight involving BTS‘s V.
But while most members had their time to shine, such as J-Hope…
…V was nowhere to be found.
Despite tagging his name in the caption of the tweet itself, V was not featured in the video snapshot.
Figurative notions. Presented in Seoul, @VirgilAbloh's #LVMenFW21 collection re-appropriates the normal through extreme elevation. Watch the show featuring @bts_bighit on Twitter or https://t.co/UzXIisHkEb#BTS #RM #Jin #SUGA #jhope #Jimin #V #JungKook pic.twitter.com/XWwVVy1FdD

Fans immediately brought this oversight to the brand’s attention. They messaged Louis Vuitton to re-upload the video since they have “seven ambassadors but there’s only six in the video.”
Hi! @LouisVuitton. You have 7 ambassadors, but there's only 6 in this video. So please we kindly ask you to fix it, and that you add 'Taehyung' (V), because he's also a BTS's member and one of the ambassadors. Thank you¡!

They pointed out that it was “unprofessional” and unbecoming of such a high-end brand to make this mistake.
@LouisVuitton, you have seven ambassadors in total. This is not the first instance of you missing out BTS V either, this level of unprofessionalism does not suit a high end luxury brand. Please delete & repost with a proper video with all SEVEN of your ambassadors. Thank you.

This is not the first time V was left out of promotional content featuring the entire group. He was previously not listed in the cast and crew credits of the Break The Silence movie.
Vox Cinemas also did not include him in the website cast list of Bring The Soul.
Even in award shows, he was omitted, with his face being cut off from the group photo teaser of the 2020 APAN Music Awards.
ARMYs continue to demand for justice for V until the error is fixed.
