With accusations flying around, Kris’s album and all of its songs are no longer able to be seen on the iTunes Store Charts, leaving Ariana Grande and Queen at #1 on the song and album charts respectively.

7 out of the top 10 songs in the US iTunes Chart were from Kris’s album as of 11:57 pm EST, November 5. However, just 19 hours later, at 7:06 pm EST on November 6, all 7 of them had “magically” disappeared from the charts.
To make matters worse, Ariana Grande liked a tweet hinting that her manager Scooter Braun was involved in getting Kris’s music removed from iTunes.
Naturally, Kris’s fans are in outrage as they believe he proved himself innocent of manipulating the iTunes chart, and that iTunes underestimated the number of Chinese fans he has.
i truly hope kris actually fills a lawsuit against this,,why is it so hard for people to believe that chinese idols have fans and that they aren’t bots? he have worked so hard and was so proud of his album only to have y’all accusing him and calling him racist shit. y’all ugly. https://t.co/iPtwgpMqET

even after it was proven that kris didnt use bots and itunes unfroze itself after hours, they still removed his songs from the charts. and then ariana likes a shady tweet about how "scooter did what he had to do" ??? this is all so messed and sketchy. this isnt fair to him AT ALL
