Congratulations to all the K-Pop idol groups that are currently nominees in this year's Billboard Music Awards!
At the moment, we have BTS, GOT7, and EXO as the nominees for the 'Top Social Artist' award, competing with Ariana Grande and Louis Tomlinson.
But GOT7 and EXO fans are not too happy with Billboard for one reason.
While BTS, Ariana Grande, and Louis Tomlinson have photos next to their names, GOT7 and EXO did not have their photos next to their names in the announcement.
What is going on? Was Billboard unable to find a photo of GOT7 and EXO? Or did JYP and SM Entertainment not give them rights to use the group's photos? There hasn't been any explanations as to why the two groups are the only artists to not have their photos next to their names.
And naturally like true K-Pop fans, fans of GOT7 and EXO started doing what they are best at. Taking the fight to Twitter.
if ur gonna nominate an artist have some respect and put their picture alongside their name wtf exo and got7 don’t deserve

OH HELL NO.... @BBMAs fix this because with this you are showing what type of company/brand you are and that is a fucking bias one because you won't even put photos, and NO don't tell us you cant find one because there are A LOT OF PHOTOS OF EXO AND GOT7 pic.twitter.com/TxyAI7jL59
