Hit boy group BTS seems to be the center of controversy these days ever since rumors of their agency, Big Hit Entertainment's, illegal practice involving artists' promotions and marketing. Now, the group is being accused of cheating at this years 'BillBoard Music Awards.' 

The boy group walked away with the award for 'Top Social Artist' underneath their belt and it was an achievement recognized worldwide. However, one reporter by the name of Jeon Won from media outlet Xports News claims there is evidence proving how the boys cheated.

The reporter stated the following in an article: "With the accusations of illegal marketing practices, BTS' eligibility for the 'Top Social Artist' award comes to suspicion. The winner of the award is determined by the hashtag votes and BTS has received more than 300 million. However, some netizens are now questioning the legitimacy. If the marketing took place with the use of part-time employees (to increase votes), then it'll be fair for BTS to return the trophy." 

Now, ARMY (the BTS fandom) have been angered to the point that they demanded an apology from the reporter and made their demand a global trend on Twitter! Fans also left the following comments alongside the hashtag, "You're the only one suspicious about BTS' win at 'BBMA'. You have looked down on our hard dedication", "Um no, I did not get a hand cramp every day voting for BTS 'BBMA' to have their name slandered. Don't mess with BTS/ARMY", "The article better be deleted because this is straight up defamation."
