On October 31, Billboard shared a tweet about Jungkook breaking a “streaming record” with a billion streams faster than anyone else. In particular, it pointed out that it was done because of his collaboration track “Seven” with Latto.

When the tweet was posted, after the backlash it seemingly received, the post was deleted and replaced with one focusing on Jungkook’s achievement, without mentioning Latto or the track.

After the new tweet was shared, ARMYs shared their reactions to the post now focusing on Jungkook, sharing that the account should respect the idol from the start rather than needing to delete a post because of backlash.

Next time do you job right, thanks and stream Seven!

Yet, while ARMYs were glad of the change, some netizens weren’t happy with either tweet. In particular, while BTS fans thought the first tweet disrespected Jungkook, many thought the new one disregarded and disrespected Latto. For many, they acknowledged that both tweets were unprofessional.

It’s crazy that everyone under here is trying to disregard Latto but didn’t do the same thing for L&R. Respect for both artists shouldn’t be that hard. And shame on @billboard to act like Latto isn’t part of the song as well. Both posts were unprofessional.

With such a huge fanbase, Billboard has often come under fire for “disrespecting” Jungkook.
