Kylie Jenner, one of the most popular social media influencers, recently made headlines after she reportedly lost one million Instagram followers in just 24 hours. The reason behind this sudden loss of followers was a controversial social media post in which the reality TV star appeared to throw shade at fellow celebrity Selena Gomez.
The post in question featured a screenshot of a news article about the cost of her recent extravagant birthday celebration. Kylie captioned the post with the words, “Everyone wants to act like they’re in a moral high ground and secretly they’re all feeling jealous. Just because it’s not happening to you doesn’t mean it’s not happening, stop with the negative bulls**t.”
Many fans and social media users interpreted the post as a direct dig at Selena Gomez, who had recently announced that she would be taking a break from social media to focus on her mental health. This led to a wave of backlash and criticism towards Kylie, with many accusing her of being insensitive and unsupportive towards Selena’s struggles.
In response to the backlash, Kylie took to social media to clarify that her post was not intended to be about Selena Gomez and that she had nothing but love and respect for her. However, the damage had already been done, with many fans and followers unfollowing her on Instagram as a sign of protest.
This incident highlights the power and influence of social media in shaping public opinion and the importance of being mindful of the messages we convey through our online presence. It also underscores the need for celebrities and influencers to use their platforms responsibly and to be mindful of the impact their words and actions can have on their followers and fans.
