ARMYs backlash as BTS Jimin’s MV “Set Me Free Pt.2” Views drop and freeze, quick response from YouTube

ARMYs demand clearer answers after the YouTube support team’s initial reply.

BTS‘s Jimin recently dropped his pre-release track “Set Me Free Pt. 2” from his upcoming solo debut album, FACE, and the song is already breaking records.

“Set Me Free Pt. 2” completely departs from BTS Jimin’s typical musical style, offering something fresh, experimental, and new that has had fans captivated since the song’s release.

As with previous releases from the group and members, ARMYs rallied to support through streaming the song on various music streaming platforms and streaming the music video on HYBE Labels‘ official YouTube channel.

The music video quickly rose to the number-one streaming video on YouTube in the U.S.

Mixed with ARMYs’ celebrations was outrage and disappointment when it was noticed that the music video’s view count was dropping and, at times, freezing.

ARMYs began to trend #YouTube corrupt and #YouTubeSabotageBTS in search of answers from the global video platform giant, who started to respond to the onslaught of backlash.

Their response did little to appease ARMYs, who challenged the confusing answer the support team at YouTube gave in response to a fan’s email.

“It’s not that we freeze the views or they receive a shadowban, the reason why that happens it’s because when they do a release (comeback) or streaming as you mentioned, it gets a lot of users watching it and the platform stops counting the views because they’re too many…

Another response from YouTube support again addressed the drops in the view count on the music video for “Set Me Free Pt. 2,” sharing that “temporarily slowing down (or even freezing) a video’s view count is to be expected.

ARMYs once again weren’t satisfied as other K-Pop music videos that were recently released didn’t seem to be subject to the same issues.

“ok guys, let’s trend even more #YouTubeCorrupt and #YouTubeSabotageBTS
since they don’t wanna give us a proper answer, they only have this treatment when it comes to the boys. BUT don’t forget to stream, we have a goal to reach. let’s do both, ok?

ARMYs continue efforts to stream the music video and seek answers and improvement from YouTube.

Despite the setbacks, Jimin’s music video continues to trend, showing his power and the power of ARMYs worldwide.
