Regardless, there's been a huge glitch in the system that is sending influencers into a panic!
Makeup artist James Charles expressed how he lost 500,000 followers overnight!
And he wasn't alone...
Thankfully, Instagram is aware of the issue.
"We’re aware of an issue that is causing a change in account follower numbers for some people right now. We’re working to resolve this as quickly as possible."
"Update: we’re expecting to have this issue resolved by 9 a.m. PST tomorrow. We understand this is frustrating, and our team is hard at work to get things back to normal."
We'll just have to wait and see if Instagram fixed the problem or not. If not, we guess we'll have to give up our booming influencer career SOS.
