[Blind Gossip] A big celebrity is closely watching the “I quit!” trend in social media to see if there is an opportunity for them.
Most recently, comedian Leslie Jones quit Twitter, only to sign back on a few days later. Int the process, she landed headlines, more followers, and an Olympic gig.
Justin Bieber quit Instagram yesterday amid a social media war stoked by Selena Gomez. His quitting wasn’t as capricious a move as you might think.
He’s getting the headlines he wants, plus some bonus hate thrown by his fans at Sel for being the cause of the quit. He’ll be back on in a couple of days with more followers than ever. Sel will come out looking bad.
Yes, this was all very calculated. Selena Gomez played right into and is now getting slapped for it.
Another celeb following this closely is trying to figure out how to stir up some controversy to attract some haters. Then she’ll quit social media until fans beg her to come back.
She’s older than Bieber, so you would think that she’d be a little too mature for this kind of stunt. The truth is that she’s never too old for ANY stunt. Now she just needs to find someone to irritate so she can play the victim…
