[PANN] 170906 XSports who got themselves in a big trouble after trying to mess with BTS

Xsports has been writing negative articles until lately like leaking their comeback date, the article on Hanteo chart favoring BTS, etc and they really hit it big today. They wrote an article about Billboard and said they won the award when they did not deserve it and said they should return the award and what not. Billboard award  = award given to BTS thanks to the overwhelming number of votes voted by ARMYs (of course, BTS was amazing to be nominated). ARMYs got angry and they let the International fans know about this (making the international fans angry too) and in just 2 hours after the article was posted, it trended No.1 on Twitter ㅋㅋㅋ The article was taken down and Billboard writer posted a tweet regarding this

[X's Focus] "Expedient vs Viral Marketing"... the legitimacy of BTS's Billboard winning...

However, they're suspected of expedient marketing and this made many to question if BTS really deserved the Billboard Top Social Award. The winner of this award was chosen by hashtag votes and BTS received about 300 million, however, netizens who questioned the legitimacy have appeared. If they were promoted due to the so called "part timers" (T/N: they say some companies pay/hire people to leave comments, or like the posts/articles), BTS has to rightfully return the award.

"This page cannot be found"
"The page you've requested has been removed, title may have been edited or the it has been temporarily disabled"

The journalist is f*cking stupid because BTS is a world record holder in the Guinness World Records ㅋㅋㅋㅋ ARMYs are posting busily to show them how they got the 300 million votes for the boys ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

"BTS to join the Guinness World Records 2018!"
BTS, if they continue to show their current progress they might need the entire Guinness World Record book for themselves!"

BTS will be mentioned in the 2018 Guinness World Records which will be released after a few days.

BTS won the honor to be featured as the boy group who have received most no. of retweets in "The Guinness World Record" book by recording 152,112 retweets in the "Twitter Engagement" category.

According to the Guinness World Record, this is the no. of retweets as of 2017 May 8th so they expect the number to be a lot higher right now. Of course, many ARMYs were happy to hear BTS mentioned in the 2018 Guinness Book and some ARMYs took photos of the page that showed BTS's record in the book and shared it on Twitter.

Congratulations to BTS for achieving another record! TS, if they continue to show their current progress they might need the entire Guinness World Record book for themselves

This is a really good article so please click on it once... it's good for the journalist if the article gets more views!


X Sports is now famous in other countries too ㅋㅋㅋ an article was written about this in the UK

These days we have an enormous number of trolls so let's not care about them saying someone is favoring a specific singer, company, etc.

We're angry at the journalist and not at the agency, other singers, other fandoms.

Let's ignore the trolls when we see them

+) we have received an apology letter but we're still looking for the apology letter personally written by the journalist~ you're not even explaining how you will try to clear the bad impression you've created for our singer and this is really insincere. How is this different from throwing a stone at  someone and then being like "I didn't mean to hit anyone but you've been hit ㅜ I'm sorry ㅠㅠ" when you've clearly thrown to hit someone??;; I hope the journalist is punished for the action and this isn't like the first time. I'm so mad. The journalist doesn't seem like they've reflected on their own action. They just made their Instagram private and left a status message targeting the ARMYs. I'm f*cking mad

X Sports News

We apologize for the article related to BTS

On 2017 September 6th 7:30pm, X Sports released an article regarding BTS with the title "X's Focus".

This was an article in a column format that reflected the option of the journalist, however, the company has judged there are problems in this reported article so we have taken the action to delete the article from the homepage around 8:15pm and this article was deleted from various portal sites.

The fact that the content of the article showed a jump of logic, created misunderstandings and disparaged the hard works of the artist and their fans, and hurting the artist and the fans with such misunderstandings, we sincerely apologize.

The newspaper never intended to disparage any specific artist nor the hard work of their fans. However, we sincerely apologize again for hurting the artist and their fans with the article. 

The newspaper will learn from this mistake and work hard to report more balanced articles.

Thank you.

1. BTS's class of Billboard supporting them, that's dope ㅋㅋㅋㅋ +473 -9
ㄴ Xsports has always tried to diss BTS and then they brought back a two-year-old incident all of a sudden and confidently published article with false accusations.  Bighit released a statement immediately and I could honestly feel how f*cking p*ssed they were from their words. Then Xsports tried to drag Billboard into this because things didn't happen as they planned and Billboard immediately released a counter article ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ ARMYs around the world are p*ssed . I think X Sports will regret what they did. Who f*cking paid you to write such sh*tty article? +97 -0
ㄴ Isn't this really an international shame? ㅋㅋ Korean singer returns after winning Billboard award and Korean journalist says this is shady to which a foreign journalist explains why this isn't shady ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I don't understand why BTS treated this way in Korea. I'm supporting BTS's comeback ㅎㅎ just think you've stepped on sh*t +73

ㄴ UK ㅋ +41 -0

2. I f*cking voted for Billboard by sleeping less and how could you say this was paid, you loon;;; Is Billboard something common like your neighbor's dog to win their award by bribing? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Do you think Bighit has that much of money? They only got to pay their debt last year or really recently so what the f*ck are you talking about? +381 -9

3. this was posted in the Brazil twitter account too ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ this is international shame ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ +345 -7

4. I've always wondered this but why is BTS treated this way in Korea? I only got to learn about their Billboard award when my ARMY friend told me about this on the day of the ceremony. Isn't Billboard a bigger ceremony than MAMA? I think they had more number of views on articles that talked about their airport fashion rather than their actual winning. This kind of breaks my heart +162 -1

5. This is really humiliating. The truth of our corrupted media is revealed internationally by the newspaper messing with BTS who has a global fandom. F*ck. BTS isn't the bad guy here and their company was blackmailed by some fraud guy so they're the victims but they still decided to disparage the fandom's influence and the singer's achievement. Journalist, you're insane +142 -0

6. but I'm just amazed by the ways ARMYs speak. You can clearly see how biased that journalist is towards a specific singer and their company but I've not seen a single tweet that targets the other singer of their company. They're only after "that journalist"... they don't really curse that much and they're calmly expressing their anger at a crazy rate. they're really amazing. Their fandom is big enough and they're really active but you can see how orderly they are and they have less immature fans. Amazing +138 -2

7. They're Korean singers but they're tortured the most in Korea ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ it's funny because a Korean singer won an award in the US but Korean journalist questions they're winning and the foreign journalist protects the boys ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ what is going on? +115 -1

8. Jeonwon-ie the keyboard warrior who is a brazen-faced fellow even after reading the trending hashtag ^^ I think he wants to logout from his life ^^ +111 -0

Mouth dieter/ healthy pig who eats a lot and works out hard/ yoga/ trash-journalist/keyboard warrior/ I'm lenient towards cursing emails and negative comments :)
