How Did BillBoard Respond To BTS' Blackmailing Controversy & Claims of Cheating?

Despite the delightful news of BTS having their official comeback for 'Love Yourself: Her' on the 18th of this month, other media outlets seem to be raining on their parade with news of blackmail, cheating, and other malicious commentaries.

After teasing and revealing highlight reels for their comeback, news surfaced of a reporter claiming BTS cheated at the 'BillBoard Music Awards.' In the article, Jeon Won of Xports News wrote, "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."
