While the article itself raised anger due to it being about the controversial artist Morgan Wallen, many were also enraged after it seemingly shaded BTS’s Jimin and Suga.

When referring to Morgan Wallen’s success, they downplayed Jimin’s own solo achievements by explaining, “At least Miley Cyrus, SZA, and Jimin have had some partial success in breaking up his domination of the Hot 100.” While it showed Jimin’s success on the charts, the use of the word “Partial” success to downplay his achievements.

The publication also seemingly threw shade at BTS’s Suga, fellow HYBE artists SEVENTEEN and LE SSERAFIM, and JYP Entertainment’s TWICE. When speaking about their ambitions to reach Billboard success, the article wrote that while the controversial artist achieved success, the K-Pop artists couldn’t.

After the publication was shared, netizens couldn’t hide their anger at the fact that something, which HYBE monitors, was allowed to be posted and discredit the members. The quotes of the initial post were full of angry fans who not only hated the fact the post was on a controversial star but it was downplaying the achievements of the BTS members.

Even in separate posts, ARMYs shared their anger about the post and how someone who is seemingly working for HYBE is shading two of the company’s artists.

Many also pointed out that the person who had written the Weverse post is someone who has gained criticism before due to his comments about Jimin getting a historic Billboard achievement.

While it isn’t uncommon for Weverse Magazine to shine a light on other artists, the scale of controversy of Morgan Wallen and the “shading” of K-Pop artists is too much for many netizens.
