Public apologies by BTS fans who spread rumors

ARMY who originally spread the rumor stepped forward and posted an apology letter:

ARMY apologizes for the controversy about BLACKPINK's ad promotions on Spotify

“First of all, I have nothing to say except that I am sorry. I had posted an unconfirmed story about Spotify around 12 AM last night, and more people than I had imagined ended up misunderstanding the situation. I knew that it was not true, but I just left a short message and did not cope with the troubles. I found out later, but the screenshots that I had found (of the Black Pink ads before BTS’ music) were also Photoshopped and were fake. I did not even think to check if those pictures and stories I read on various online communities, and went ahead and posted it here. Because of my act, many Blinks and the innocent members of Black Pink were extremely criticized. I am sorry. I initially did not have any intention of wrongfully accusing Black Pink and Blinks.”
