If you’re unfamiliar with The Instapurge, you might want to check your Instagram account — the photo app deleted millions of spam accounts today in an effort to clean up the service…and to make celebrities feel like shit.
You’re probably fine and only lost a couple followers. Some famous people weren’t so lucky. Justin Bieber, for example, lost over 3.6 million followers. Further proof that star has crashed to the ground. Other celebs like Akon, Mase and 50 Cent also saw their followers count loose a significant chunk.
The biggest loss, however, belongs to an account that’s since been deleted because it no longer has a reason to even update. Thanks to the Instapurge, an account with the name chiragchirag78 boasted over 3.6 million followers. It was all bullshit. After the Instapurge, the follower count dropped to eight. Eight. As in “after seven but before nine.”
This is just more proof the mighty social media numbers are a load of horse shit.
