    So according to ICMP BTS has the second highest percentage of fake followers of people in showbiz. I don’t know how reliable this is but I thought I would like to have a discussion about the following things.

    1. Do you think this is obvious information or are you surprised by this?
    2. What are your opinions of celebrities getting fake followers?
    3. Do you believe BTS have fake followers or is this BS?


    Below is the list and the link to the website where you can see much more.

    1. Ellen DeGeneres – 49%
    2. BTS – 47%
    3. Kourtney Kardashian – 46%
    4. Taylor Swift – 46%
    5. Ariana Grande – 46%
    6. Deepika Padukone – 45%
    7. Miley Cyrus – 45%
    8. Katy Perry – 44%
    9. Khloe Kardashian – 43%
    10. Priyanka Chopra – 43%

    OMG, BTS IS MAINSTREAM!!! The fact only they are mentioned with other western celebs and no other kpop act is means the west really does think kpop=BTS.

    But back on topic, their stans to bots ratio is way higher when it comes to album sales than many of those western celebs listed. They sold almost 17M albums and compared to their overall followers, that's a good ratio of actual stans buying their music than just creating tons of accounts.

    Yup. They are fake. All of the things that related to BTS are fake. But not other idols. Other idols are never fake...

    Since they use Instagram as one of their variables and BTS don't even have an account, I can't help but wonder, if that affected the results somehow.
    Edit: rather not a personal one.

    Wow..
    The fact that BTS were out there with world famous celebs, their career were doing amazing and have numbers to back it up despite the fake followers..

    Reliable or not, my question is if BTS with millions of albums sold every new releases, sold out stadiums worldwide or anything that they made or touch have that amounts of fake followers, i wonder how many fake followers other groups or idols have if they were included in the list..

    So there's a website checking every account to make sure they're real? Wow, the dedication.
