During Sunday’s episode of American Idol, host Ryan Seacrest kicked off the show by announcing that Arthur is the winner of the “Comeback Twist.”

Arthur, 23, previously competed on season 18, while he came in second place behind the winner Laine Hardy.

Following the big announcement, a number of viewers took to Twitter to slam both Arthur and the show for allowing the contestant back on the show.

One fan wrote: “@AmericanIdol this comeback is still super s***ty and unfair to this year’s group of kids. He’s had a full year of gaining fans on them. He’s gonna win the whole thing.”

Another person said: “If Arthur manages to win this season, it’s completely unfair to the other extremely talented contestants who have worked their a**es off all season.”

A third chimed in: “Alright, having @ArthurGunn122 being the Comeback is completely unfair. Runner-ups have an unfair advantage – especially in this age of social medial.”

While someone simply said “Arthur gotta go,” another wrote: ” If it’s not clear @AmericanIdol wanted Arthur Gunn to win, it’s clear now. He finished SECOND last season, he shouldn’t be allowed to compete again to steal someone else’s spot. “

Others said they have moved on from the musician, as one person wrote: “Arthur was great last year, but that was last year. Im invested in this years contestants.”

Many people agreed that Arthur’s comeback seemed unfair, with a Twitter user writing: “I swear if this Arthur guy wins its completely rigged.”

A following person added: “That’s like having Adam Lambert come back, he finished second and acquired a big fan base, like Arthur. I like the idea and concept but they shouldn’t have included people who go that far in last year’s competition.”

Another American Idol fan tweeted: “Idc what anyone says, its so unfair that arthur is on idol AGAIN this year! If he wins i will flip!”

As the winner of the comeback round, Arthur will have the chance to compete for the Season 19 champion title.
