Recently Instagram removed all spammy accounts from their sites and in doing so they changed the number of followers some people have. In some cases the change was huge!
For some celebrities they ended up losing millions of fake followers in what is being called the “Instagram Purge” or “Instagram Rapture.”
Justin Bieber lost the most followers, he went from 23.8 million to 20.3 million followers, losing a total of 3.5 million!
Ariana Grande lost 1.5 million, she now has 20.2 million followers. Selena Gomez went down to 18.1 million followers after she lost 1.1 million.
Justin had ranked number one as Instagram’s most followed person, but now that title goes to Kim Kardashian with 22.2 million followers and that is after she lost 1.3 million!
In the end the New York Times has reported that the total fake users purged from Instagram was 18.9 million!
Did you lose any fake followers?
Lucy Hale had her “Road Between Tour” all set up for 2015, but unfortunately she had to cancel some of the earlier dates for this winter due to health reasons!
She has strained her vocal cords and has to rest them to get better. The 26 year-old singer has been getting ready for her tour by performing at smaller venues lately.
Here’s what Lucy had to say about the cancellations:
I am devastated that I can’t be out performing for my fans who have been incredibly supportive. But I have been advised not to embark on a tour at this time. You know I hate letting y’all down and thank you for your understanding.
If you were one of the unlucky fans that have an early tour date you can contact the site where you purchased them for return information.
We are so sorry for Lucy, she was looking forward to her new tour! We recently saw her in North Carolina and she sounded great. We wish her a speedy recovery!
