It’s not usually that you just lose followers for taking part in a social media problem, however that’s what simply occurred to Billie Eilish. The Grammy winner misplaced 100,000 followers on Instagram after she posted a drawing she made from some ladies’s breasts.
The 19-year-old Eilish was taking part within the viral “Post a Picture Of” Instagram problem, by which customers put a query field of their story the place their followers can inform them what to publish photos of. As Cosmopolitan famous, Eilish answered one immediate by posting an image of her lockscreen, after which adopted one other immediate by posting “a drawing you’re really proud of”.
For the latter, Eilish shared a pocket book web page filled with doodles of nude feminine our bodies that she says she drew. “These probably lol I love boobs” wrote Eilish within the caption. The drawing might have violated Instagram’s byzantine phrases of service for nudity, however nothing about it ought to have been controversial. Ladies have our bodies. Eilish drew some. Apparently she’s happy with the drawing. That ought to have been the tip of that.
Nonetheless, one eagle-eyed sleuth shortly realized that within the half hour since she first shared the picture, Eilish had quickly misplaced 100k Instagram followers. As soon as the “Therefore I Am” singer seen the fan’s publish relating to the follower drop, Eilish screencapped it and responded to it in her story. “LMFAOOO y’all babies smh”, Eilish wrote in response to her sudden dip.
