London sparked backlash earlier this week when they published a video to Twitter on June 28. In the video it appears they are post-op and still bandaged up from a recent surgery.

In total, London has undergone 18 surgeries to look like K-Pop star Jimin of BTS!
In the video from Monday London said, “I feel Korean you know. I identify with the Korean community. Maybe they will accept me more now, because I have the look you know? Maybe people will think I’m actually Korean which will make me really happy, and they can see how much I love their culture.”
They noted that this was the “extreme end” that they’ve gone to because they love Korea so much.
“I just want to make Jimin proud as well,” they continued. “Jimin is my ultimate idol and I want him to be proud, so I’m sure he’ll be proud that I look exactly like him now. I have his eyes. I finally have Jimin’s Korean eyes and they’re so, so beautiful.”

The influencer, who recently came out and revealed they identify as non-binary and transracial, uploaded another video to their YouTube channel detailing their plastic surgery journey.
In the video titled, “Being Korean…,” they explain the procedures they’ve undergone which include, but are not limited to a face lift, brow lift, temple lift, eye surgery, and their teeth.
London, who uses pronouns ‘they,’ ‘them,’ and ‘Jimin,’ said in the video, “I do identify as Korean, and I do look Korean now. I do feel Korean. I do not identify as British, so please don’t refer to me, in the media or online, as British, because I identify as Korean.”

Jimin’s (the influencer) coming out was met with mixed reactions, many of which were negative.
On person wrote, “You are not, nor will you ever be, Korean.”
Another said, “You can’t just change your race with surgery.”
While another brought the real Jimin into the equation writing, “Jimin himself would body slam you if he saw you.”
It is now being reported that Jimin, formerly Oli London, is receiving death threats after identifying as Korean.
They spoke with TMZ to report that they are getting flooded with death threats and are scared for their life.
“I’ve literally had thousands of death threats, which is very scary. You know, people telling me to kill myself, people saying they’re going to come find me and shoot me. Really extreme stuff,” they revealed.
