Although Selena Gomez has moved on from her conflict with Kylie Jenner and Hailey Bieber on the video-sharing app TikTok, her fan base has not. Gomez has gained over 10.5 million (!!!) new Instagram followers in the past week as a result of her devoted fan base.
Gomez overtook Jenner as Instagram's most followed woman on February 22 with 380,644,778 followers. As of 12 PM EST on 1 March, she has 391,143,710 followers, an increase of 10,498,932. Take it from Gomez herself: "look at her now." More than 269.6 million people have viewed the #teamselena hashtag on TikTok, demonstrating its influence.
Meanwhile, Jenner has lost around 500,000 of her followers. The Daily Mail said that she may have lost as much as $1 million. A million fewer people are following her now than were before, according to her profile, while the actual number is closer to 379 million (down from 380 million).
At 380,425,729, Jenner was the second most followed woman on Instagram. The number of her followers has increased to 379,938,969, or about 380 million. That's a gap of exactly 486,760 adherents. It's true that Jenner has lost some fans, but it's not a shocking million.
Gomez and Jenner put an end to the drama after Jenner and Hailey Bieber were accused of making fun of Gomez's "over-laminated" eyebrows on Instagram Stories, the proverbial "tip of the iceberg" TikTok incident that has triggered an avalanche of fans poring over years of potentially questionable potential "mean girl bullying" interactions.
The reality star wrote that Jenner "is reaching" if she thinks she was responsible for Gomez's eyebrows being shot. Nothing against Selena, and I swear I never noticed that she had eyebrow posts. You're creating a fantasy out of thin air. How ridiculous!
Gomez added her voice to the refutation, writing, "Agreed @kyliejenner. Nothing good will come of it. I really like Kylie Minogue.
After her further TikTok remarks on the bullying gained so much attention from fans and the media, Gomez temporarily quit the app. She told followers before leaving TikTok that she was too old for this drama, but she has subsequently reactivated her account and has been quite active on Instagram.
I have the best friends and the best fans in the world, and that makes me the happiest person in the world," Gomez exclaimed. To add, I'm fine. This is myself, and I couldn't be happier with myself. I don't give a damn if you call me huge or not. To be honest, I'm quite pleased with myself. This is ridiculous, so I'm going to go away from social media for a second. I'm 30, too old for this nonsense anyway. But I adore all of you. I just need to take a vacation from everything for a little while, and I promise I'll see you all soon.
