They band posted a tweet in their language (Korean) and also in English, using #BlackLivesMatter.

They wrote :

“We stand against racial discrimination. We condemn violence. You, I and we all have the right to be respected. We will stand together.”

Here is their tweet below

Their support comes a day after K-Pop fans were appreciated for working in harmony to flood racist hashtags on Twitter with fancams to keep any messages not in accordance with Black Lives Matter from spreading online.

Based on a statement from Newsis, BTS is also making a donation to Black Lives Matter groups

According to a statement from BigHit (Their entertainment label) which was translated through Google Translate ;

“We are in the process of making a donation. Since we are still in the process of sending money, we are still unable to reveal the donor and the amount of money.”

There’s no word on whether or not BTS plans to announce the organizations and amounts later on, but the band has been known to make sizable private donations in the past both as individuals and as a group.
