Selena Gomez Loses 1 Million Instagram Followers During ‘Blackout 2024

Selena Gomez

American actress and singer Selena Gomez has faced a notable setback on social media, losing a staggering one million followers on Instagram and 100,000 on X.

The downturn coincides with the surging ‘Blackout 2024’ movement, which has ignited significant discourse across various platforms.

This movement, propelled by concerns over the ongoing Israeli attacks in Gaza, aims to spotlight the silence of celebrities regarding the humanitarian crisis.

Among those under scrutiny are a slew of high-profile figures, including Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Alia Bhatt, Zendaya, Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, and Priyanka Chopra, among others.

The ‘Blackout 2024’ roster includes luminaries who boast extensive followings on social media platforms.

They face reproach for their perceived inaction against injustice, with critics suggesting their opulent lifestyles take precedence over advocating for marginalized communities.

The movement gained considerable momentum following the Met Gala 2024, an esteemed fashion affair hosted at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, where several of the implicated celebrities were in attendance.

Social media users were swift to highlight what they perceived as a contradiction: lavishing attention on glamorous attire while overlooking pressing global issues.

Consequently, many of these figures have witnessed a marked decline in their follower counts, with Selena Gomez becoming the latest casualty of the movement’s repercussions.

The ‘Blackout 2024’ initiative underscores the potency of social media in fostering accountability among influencers and celebrities, emphasizing the significance of using one’s platform for meaningful discourse and advocacy.

As the movement continues to resonate with audiences worldwide, it underscores the power of collective activism in prompting introspection and galvanizing positive societal change.
