The Grammy-winning singer Billie Eilish, who on the social media site enjoys a massive fan following of 65 million followers, appears to have unfollowed every account on which she had previously kept her eye. She has a follower count of “0” as from Thursday morning.
It’s unclear why this step was taken by the 18-year-old singer — but fans pointed out that Eilish allegedly posted to her Instagram Story, saying, “If I am following your abuser DM ME & I will unfollow them,” E! reports.
The portal reached out to the reps of the “Bad Guy” singer for the comment on the same but has yet to hear a response. However, Eilish was not a newcomer to recent social commentary. She took to Instagram in May to slam supporters of “All Lives Matter” after George Floyd ‘s second-degree manslaughter.
“If all lives matter why are black people killed for just being black,” Eilish posted, who recently received a three-year restraining order against a trespasser.
She also shared her voiced opinions with her Instagram followers about the pandemic in March at the start of the coronavirus-related lockdowns in the U.S.—including that social distancing is a responsibility, and that people shouldn’t store supplies.
“It is a really big deal right now, and it is not a joke,” she said. “I know because a lot of us haven’t seen it with our eyes — what it’s been doing and who it’s been affecting — it’s hard to understand that it’s real. But it really is real, and I’ve seen a lot of young people out in the world, all over the place, going to the club or going to the beach, just going out and hanging out. It’s really irresponsible.”
