Netizens’ comments:

  • “IVE FOLLOWED YOU FOR SO LONG IM SO HAPPY JK IS NOTICING U”
  • “Do we have to do your dance so he can follow us now?”
  • “im so sorry for those Who hated on you jk can follow Who he wants”

  • “we all be like that if jk follow us. wish u have a beautiful day”
  • “as an army why are those toxic armies mad like he can do watever he wants”
