What’s up y’all, it’s Sussan Mourad here with Clevver News, and Billie Eilish
is raising speculation after mysteriously unfollowing everyone on Instagram with no
It’s not unusual in the land of Hollywood for a celebrity to wipe their previous Instagram
palette completely clean before announcing something big, a new era or even taking a
break following a massive scandal.
But in the midst of being isolated for months now, big moves like unfollowing your entire
list of close friends and fans who you’ve been following for months, maybe even years,
seems a bit out of the ordinary.
Fans were a little taken aback after noticing that Billie Eilish had wiped her “following”
tab clean of everyone she was previously following, except for one account, which just so happens
to show no name displayed when clicking.
She then also unfollowed that one account so that she was no longer following anybody.
This could be a possible glitch, or it could be intentional -- either way, fans are speculating
that Billie’s unfollow sweep could be related to the recent sexual assault allegations against
celebrities inclding Jusin Bieber, Ansel Elgort, Cole Sprouse, Lili Reinhart and many others.
One Twitter account screenshotted an Instagram story that Billie allegedly posted and then
deleted that read, “If I am following your abuser, DM me and I will unfollow them.
I support you.”
The Twitter account also noted that Billie unfollowed Ansel, Justin, Chris Brown and
XXXTENTACION shortly after posting that she’d be unfollowing fans’ abusers.
This move has caused many fans to freak out upon hearing the news that Billie wiped so
many artists she looked up to and admired clean from her social media.
One user shared screenshots of Billie’s account, writing, “BILLIE EILISH UNFOLLOWED
JUSTIN BIEBER AND CHRIS BROWN OMG.”
Another fan tweeted, “billie eilish posting ‘dm me if i follow your abuser’ and unfollowing
everyone instead of just unfollowing chris brown and justin bieber doesn't sit right
Which was followed by “it looks like she unfollowed them first but she still could
of made a point if it was only them”
Others were defending Billie’s decision, claiming that what she does on her account
should be nobody’s business.
One user asked, “Why tf is everybody mad about Billie Eilish unfollowing everyone???
Celebrities aren’t obligated to follow people y’all are weird.”
Some are even praising Billie for unfollowing everyone, rather than just the alleged abusers,
especially considering the allegations haven’t been proven true.
This user said QUOTE, “What Billie Eilish did was smart.
She was following abusers but instead unfollowed everyone.
She knew how those stans would react if she did just those specific names.
Smart move to avoid nonsense twitter wars.”
While at this stage we don’t know the exact reason why she unfollowed everybody, Billie
has made it clear on social media that she will not be silent when it comes to calling
out acts of violence and injustice.
She has recently been very vocal about her participation in the Black Lives Matter movement
and is constantly encouraging fans to speak out and do their part in spreading awareness
about racial injustice.
She was also one of many celebs, including Ariana Grande, Rihanna and Meek Mill, who
participated in signing an open letter in support of police reform.
The letter was addressed to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and House Minority Leader
Kevin McCarthy, and stated that this “legislation will not only promote justice; it will establish
a culture of responsibility, fairness, and respect deserving of the badge.”
It also affirms that the act should create effective and positive change, adding, “We
celebrate the long-overdue rejection of qualified immunity, emphasizing that law enforcement
officers themselves are not above the law—that bad cops must be held accountable and victims
must have recourse.”
Given the fact that Billie is constantly using her platform to bring awareness to current
political and social issues, regarding the sweep of people she follows, it seems more
and more likely that it was, in fact, an intentional statement about the growing rate of abuser
claims in the industry.
Billie has yet to speak out on the matter, but we will be sure to update you guys should
more truth behind her decision unfold.
