It seems that YouTube is back at it again with deleting views from Kpop MVs when fans are busy streaming!
ARMY has long had discord with the platform because they deleted a lot of BTS MV views from previous releases. Every single time BTS releases a comeback, fans experience frustration because YouTube keeps deducting views.
It got them into controversy last year, fans even trended a hashtag to complain about this and YouTube response only added fuel to the fire. This year, it seems to be no exception, because fans have caught YouTube deleting views from “ON.” Check out some fans tweets about this below:

Last year, the fandom was able to break through milestones in views in such short periods and despite the anticipation for this album, the fandom feels discouraged because despite streaming the views seem to be stuck.
As of this writing (February 22, 7:14 AM KST), “ON” has amassed over 29.3 million views and 4 million likes.
Here is how the fandom is dealing with this:

Been streaming nonstop, I’m guessing the views are not as high since YouTube changed their rules. But based on other streams, such as Spotify and stuff, we are breaking records! So don’t feel discouraged! Keep going #StreamingPartyON
