Over the past couple weeks Instagram informed its users that it would be deleting spambots from its lineup of over 300 million users. So when I woke up to find that I had lost 100 Instagram followers, it felt like losing dead weight. While regular folks like you and I may have lost just a couple dozen followers some celebrities have been hit rather hard.
Instagram heavy weights like Rihanna @BadGirlRiri and Kim Kardashian @KimKardashian saw their followers go down by over a million. Thats not a big deal if you have over 20 million followers like Kim K.
The IG purge seems to have hit on again off again rapper Mase the hardest. When he lost 1 million followers in the clean up, leaving just over 270k Mase immediately deleted his account.
Its Mase though, so maybe he’ll be back.
