Rapper B-Free says he would rather apologize to San E than BTS for his controversial remarks

If he had to apologize, B-Free would rather do it to San E than BTS. 

In 2014, B-Free started drama with San E by releasing a fierce diss track ''My Team'' where he called San E a "retarded rapper". Several months later, San E fired back with the track ''On Top of Your Head''. 

B-Free is also known for dissing BTS. The rapper poked fun at the idol group's stage makeup, choreography, and more, which many fans found highly offensive. B-Free gained a lot of hate due to these remarks about BTS but he did not back up. He actually worsened the matter by retweeting hate comments toward BTS and even stating he'll bitch slap the boys the next time he sees them.
