Now, K-pop stans and TikTok users are claiming they pulled this off by trolling the online ordering system with fake orders.
New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pointed this out to Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale via a Twitter exchange.
Actually you just got ROCKED by teens on TikTok who flooded the Trump campaign w/ fake ticket reservations & tricked you into believing a million people wanted your white supremacist open mic enough to pack an arena during COVID
MSNBC host Joy-Ann Reid tweeted how the rally suffered “anemic numbers” due to these K-pop fans.
So there is a good deal of Twitter chatter that part of why the crowd outside and inside the Tulsa Trump rally is that KPOp fans requested masses of tickets to plus up Trump’s expectations with no intention of showing up. Either way, anemic nunbers for Trump in a deep red state. https://t.co/anxmdy5Dbq
