The debate around George Floyd's tragic death and Black Lives Matter doesn't seem to die down anytime soon and more celebrities are raising their voice against the rampant racism and taking a stand in their own way. Amid all the fuss and furor, Billie Eilish posted a message on her Instagram Stories that read, "If I am following your abuser, DM me and I will unfollow them. I will support you." A while later, she deleted it from her stories and unfollowed everyone on Instagram. Word soon traveled on the Internet and people couldn't stop wondering why she had zero people under her "following" list.
"Not Billie Eilish unfollowing literally everybody after posting this on her story. Her following count is zero now," one tweet read and another said, "Billie Eilish has unfollowed everyone on Instagram." One wrote, "Billie, I love you more than anything and I need to know if you're okay. Tell us if it's okay and what's going on. I'm going to die of worry!" Sharing screenshots, one wrote, "Billie unfollowed Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, XXXTentacion and Ansel on Instagram."
Many wondered how come she had unfollowed her brother, Finneas, with whom she collaborates on music and live shows. "BILLIE UNFOLLOWED FINNEAS TOO WTF DID THEY BREAK UP???" one tweet read. A few thought her Instagram account had been hacked. One fan posted, "It's sad how everyone is trying to cancel Billie she's now following no one, not even her family IDK if she's hacked or she's just tired of all the bulls**t." Another wrote, "Imagine Billie is like 'I was hacked!'” Pointing out the hypocrisy among fans, one said, "Selenators after finding out Billie unfollowed “abusers”: OMG QUEEN. SLAY. ENDED THEM. them realizing she unfollowed Selena: SHE WAS HACKED."
Several fans started saying how she could have posted about the abusers and inspired her fan community instead of silently unfollowing everyone. When the backlash started to grow, several music lovers and fans of Eilish came to stand in support of her decision. "Billie could directly say “f**k every single Instagram fan account” on camera and they would still be like 'Twitter stans made her do this'." Another said, "I don’t understand the controversy over Billie unfollowing everyone. many celebrities don’t follow anyone... like what’s the big deal."
The biggest stir was about Billie Eilish unfollowing Justin Bieber. "Lol, people are dragging Justin Bieber’s NAME AGAIN!! Billie Eilish f**king UNFOLLOWED EVERYONE LOL." Another joked, "It's good that Billie unfollowed Justin Bieber and Chris Brown but why did she unfollow everyone to cover up this fact." One even went on to say: "do you think @justinbieber cares that the @billieeilish girl unfollowed him??? no, he doesn't the internet nowadays's everyone wants to cancel each other with no evidence, no proof and people get entertained s**tting on people's life smh man."
