Right before the Miley Cyrus fiasco, the hashtag #exosnatchedjustinsfansparty started trending after fans of the K-pop group Exo went to twitter claiming that the group was more popular than Justin Bieber.
Exo’s fans pointed out that both acts had concerts on the same night in Tokyo, and uploaded photos from both concerts showing Bieber’s concert looking empty, while Exo’s had a packed house.
“The picture showed [Justin]’s venue almost empty while Exo’s venue was packed. So the user assumed fans chose Exo over [Justin] but it’s all wrong,” wrote UnrealityTV. “The picture was taken after [Justin’s] concert ended. A lot of fans went to Exo AFTER [Bieber].”
It’s incredible how a something so small can quickly turn the internet upside down. This is the power of passionate pop fans on social media. You have been warned people.
