Instagram Changes to Followers

Instagram Rapture Causes Widespread Panic

You may or may not have lost a bunch of Instagram followers recently, depending on who you accept or whether you're a celeb (*waves hi*). In the past few days, Instagram's been rolling out a new policy that gets rid of spam accounts and inactive profiles.

People are dubbing it the "Instagram rapture," and they either think it's hilarious or the worst thing to ever happen (see below). Like you'd expect, celebs like Rihanna, Justin Bieber, and Kim Kardashian lost millions of followers, and Mase deleted his account after the majority of his followers disappeared. (Aww.)

There's even a "recovering followers" account with a bio that reads "Helping Recover All Followers That Were Lost." File this one under first-world tech problems.
