Ariana thanked her fans for the Hot 100 #1 today and responded to 6*x9*ne’s claims that her team was using illegal tactics to get the song to #1. On Instagram, she wrote:
"thank u to everybody who supported this song, this cause and made this happen. we love uuuuu so much. i would like to say a few things. anyone who knows me or has followed me for a while knows that numbers aren't the driving force in anything i do. i'm grateful to sing. grateful to have people who want to listen. grateful to even be here at all. i didn't have a number one for the first five years of my career and it didn't upset me at all because from the bottom of my heart, music is everything to me. my fans are everything to me. i promise I couldn't ask for another fucking thing. so with this celebration today, i would like to address a few things which i don't usually do (i don't give my energy to drama or strange accusations normally but this has gone a little too far)...my fans bought the song. JUSTIN'S fans bought the song. OUR fans bought this song (never more than four copies each, AS THE RULES STATE). they are ride or die motherfuckers and i thank god every day that i have them in my life. not just when they fight for us to win (even when i ask them not to as i did this week) but because they're some of the greatest people I know. sales count for more than streams. u can not discredit this as hard as u try. to anybody that is displeased with their placement on the chart this week or who is spending their time racking their brain thinking of as many ways as they can to discredit hardworking women (and only the women for some reason...), i ask u to take a moment to humble yourself. be grateful you're even here. that people want to listen to u at all. it's a blessed position to be in. i've had a lot of "almost number ones" in my career and i never said a goddamn thing because I FEEL GRATEFUL TO EVEN BE HERE. TO WANT TO BE HEARD AT ALL... and you should feel that way too. congratulations to all my talented ass peers in the top ten this week. even number 3. and thank u to @billboard for this honor. and thank u to everybody who helped us raise a lot of money for a very important cause this week. I love u all a lot. however, there's so much to celebrate today."

6ix9ine accuses Billboard of chart manipulation; claims at least 30,000 of Ariana Grande’s bundles for “Stuck With U” were purchased with six different credit cards. pic.twitter.com/YWRdrCGxfe— Pop Base (@PopBase) May 18, 2020
I still don't understand how this man broke youtube records.
2020, summed up. https://t.co/ywyaivI2By— NME (@NME) May 14, 2020
Chet took to Instagram to question 6ix9ine’s popularity after his release from prison. “I’d rather be broke and be able to go where I like/do as I please than have 100 billion and have to live in hiding with 24/7 security team… think about that for all you idiots calling 69 a ‘goat’ and ‘legendary,'” Chet wrote on his Instagram Story. “Don’t be fooled by social media,” Chet warned his followers. “That dude is SCARED SHITLESS but has no choice but to laugh and make light of it cuz he knows he’s a marked man for the rest of his life either way", Chet added. In retaliation the snitch and pedo snarkily replied, “Wishing his dad a speedy recovery,” referencing Tom Hanks’ recent battle with coronavirus.

Last Friday, the pedo & snitch rapper who resembles a human form of a parrot and vineral disease, released a new song and video created during his home confinement just weeks after being freed from federal lockup. Today the pedo rapper showed receipts from his label that his shitty song was gonna hit #1 but now Ariana & Justin's shitty song gonna get the top spot. In the video he displayed the forecasts that every label gets, claiming Ariana/Justin submitted 60K units last minute out of no where jumping from #5 to #1. For whatever reason Charlie Puth got involved and liked the pedo/rapper's post.
