Korean television network Mnet could be in trouble over its latest season of Produce X 101.
Angry netizens are reportedly calling the broadcast company out over mathematical inconsistencies spotted during the voting on the last episode of the popular survival audition show that aired last Friday, 19 July.
The controversy began on the day of the popular audition show's finale when the text votes were revealed during its live broadcast. Netizens were alerted when they found that all of the differences in voting from the 1st to the 11th ranking equalled 29,978, and were more suspicious when these differences were found to be multiples of 7,494.5.
In a post shared on Instiz on 19 July , netizens provided alleged proof of the manipulation.
