“It won’t let you insult BTS for no reason. We will do the impossible to keep everything in place. ARMY wants to know why you will remove BTS from the list. Please explain why you did it. #BILLBOARD_CORRUPT

Some even tagged Keith Caulfield, a senior director of the Billboard charts.

“Hi @keith_caulfieldyou are senior director of @bilboard charts. Let us know why BTS was removed from the Billboard Artist 100 twice for no reason at all. Artists with fewer sales and fewer streams are on the charts. Explain the reason as soon as possible.

“Remember to tag Keith Caulfield! @ #Keith_Caulfield #BILLBOARD_CORRUPT Senior Director of the Billboard Charts. #BTS they were #47 on the Artist 100 last week and Proof on the BB 200. Why have they left the chart now? This is the SECOND TIME! FIX BOTH TIMES!”
