If you’ve been on Twitter in the last hour or so, you may have noticed that “THE TRANSLATION” is trending.
The trend comes from a hilarious translation of a conversation between BTS members V and Jimin during a livestream, when they were talking about a food they enjoyed.
However, when the quotes were translated through Google, the results were rather… Questionable and NSFW.
Understandably, fans are losing their minds over this hilarious mis-translation.

In reality, the two are talking about yeot, which is a type of taffy. However, the word can also be translated into something else entirely, which is how this translation came to be.

It just goes to show that Google translate can’t always be trusted! You can watch the original clip here:
