The website of BTS's management agency, Big Hit Entertainment, has been hacked to replace the music video for the popular group's latest hit track "Not Today" with one from a girl group.

The main page remained intact with only the track's YouTube link in the agency's post showing the music video of girl group TWICE's comeback track "Knock Knock".

The noticeboard, hacked on Tuesday morning, was altered by a hacker who identified himself as "Unknown". The altered page showed a slogan: "Big Thank's to : Muslim Fight", sparking speculation that the attack was staged by Muslim extremists in retaliation for Not Today's music video that contained a scene resembling BTS members getting shot down by people wearing hijabs.

Some considerate fans called for caution saying the hacker could be just a Muslim imposter trying to evade criticism and blame, or he could be a fan of TWICE. The agency dropped the YouTube link without giving any explanation or comment.
