EXO’s Chanyeol is being attacked by Big Bang fans over his recent posts on Instagram.
On June 7 the singer shared with his 4.1 million followers a screenshot of a music chart that showed EXO’s latest tracks dominating the top ranks. One image shows EXO occupying all but spot number four in the top seven, with the fourth being held by Big Bang.
In reaction to the 22-year-old EXO singer’s posting, V.I.P's (Big Bang’s loyal fan base name) started spamming Chanyeol's comments for not editing out Big Bang’s mention from his image and not being respectful to the competing boy band, who are all older than the EXO members.
At the time of writing the post has attracted over 223,000 comments, comprising of Big Bang VIP’s slandering the EXO idol or EXO fans defending his actions.
Chanyeol responded to the controversy with his own comment towards his fans saying, "I did not upload this to make fans feels sorry. I uploaded it because I’m so proud of the string of chart rankings every night even though it’s only been a few days since album release. This is an huge accomplishment so let us not be disheartened and let’s enjoy it!”
Interestingly, Big Bang’s G-Dragon also posted a chart screenshot on his Instagram account showing the top four spots all taken by Big Bang, and captioned, “Oh my oh my, Goodnight."
