Marvel fans allege BTS Army hijacked Tony Stark's Avengers: Endgame quote 'Love You 3000'
Marvel fans and BTS Army on Twitter are at loggerheads over the Avengers: Endgame catchphrase, 'I Love You 3000', each party claiming ownership over it.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has given us a ton of memorable moments, from assembling the superhero team of Avengers, to introducing cosmic adventures or visiting the aesthetically appealing Wakanda, the movies have produced a lot of incredible moments and some worth-mentioning lines.
Avengers: Endgame celebrated the franchise history with many emotional twists, and left us with a unique catchphrase that will have us repeating it for years, 'I Love You 3000'.
Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) and Pepper Pott's (Gwayneth Paltrow) daughter, Morgan Stark's adorable, and numerical, statement of adoration for her father has become the breakout quote from Avengers: Endgame.
The line is first said when Tony is putting Morgan to bed after he cracks the code for time travel. The same statement then it takes on a much more emotional meaning at the end of the movie after Tony's death, when his hologram says "I love you 3,000" back to Morgan.
The phrase is perfectly suited for Marvel fans who went onto to declare their love for Robert Downey Jr himself on his last outing as Iron Man. Hence, it is rather a matter of pride for Marvel fandom when someone claims their right over the phrase.
Earlier today, Twitter was divided into two groups over the "I Love You 3000" phrase. It all began when K-pop band BTS member Jin used the phrase during his Wembley concert. BTS Amry was quick to share the video and claimed their ownership was the first to take on the phrase.

Indisputable truth that I am getting too old for social media. I don't know what kpop is or why it would be associated with Iron Man's #loveyou3000 and I have no idea why Michael Cera is trending. What table are y'all talking about? pic.twitter.com/SdA9d3jqFi

However, a user later clarified the issue, and mentioned that Jin only used the phrase for his army and has often claimed to be a Marvel fan. She also added that BTS music video 'Epiphany' recently reached 50 million views, and they were just celebrating by making reference to the Marvel quote.
