Chart Data’s tweet
While the majority of the tweets congratulated and praised the two artists for their achievements, not all of the tweets were kind.
In particular, one Twitter user commented, “Puth carried,” implying that only Charlie Puth made the song successful and that Jungkook’s contribution wasn’t impactful to the results. The comment has since then been blocked from public view, with the Twitter user going private afterward.
