Billie deletes his Instagram

Recommended Posts

Billie Hoe

So, the account "billiejoearmstrong" is no longer on Instagram as of today. He posted the picture of Dr. Ford's cover on Time magazine with #ibelieveher, and now he and all of his posts are gone.

What do you think happened there? The longshot account is still there. Did Billie simply grow tired of Instagram and seeing people posting hateful shit in the comments (which he knows how to turn off) or did he get hacked? He can't have accidentally pressed a button, because you need to open a site on your browser and confirm your deactivation.  Did anyone see him reacting to the comments on his latest post? Jeff Matika jumped to his aid in the comments on the Presidential Alert post to, in his words, "take the heat", so maybe he has discussed being fed up with the toxicity of Instagram with his friends?

Some people can still find him in the search results but that seems to be a glitch, as his page is missing followers, bio or post-count, etc. depending on who views it.

This might not be thread worthy but this site is pretty dead otherwise so, whatever. I'm curious about what happend.

Thinking it has something to do with the trolls who leave comments on his political posts... i hope its just temporary and he is just taking a break from insta

i hope so too. he shouldn't have to deal with Trumpers being asshats. (i acknowledge not all trumpers are asshats personally) but supports a platform that encourages all the bad in the country.

i didn't see Billie's posts i do follow him but other things bury his. i do feel bad for Billie. he doesn't have to bow down to trolls. that only makes them win.

yep like i said in the first post, some people see the post count or stuff like that, but I assume it's a glitch. I can see his profile but only his follower count 1,9 million, his photo and his name.

Because of this, I think he just suspended it and didn’t actually delete it, so if he comes back he can still have his name & verification. That’s my hope anyways.

I agree with you. I wish there was a way he could just block those type of people instead

the only way is to go into the persons profile and block em that way but it takes way too much time on IG especially if there are hundreds of hate comments

@Billie Hoe this! I, too, feel like the trolls/assholes got their wish and that makes me upset. I know he interacted with people on it, but maybe turning off commenting for all posts is what celebrities will have to start doing.

That’s the sad effect of social media. Very few people can have a calm, educated argument these days...

I hope he hasn't deleted his account, as its presence has overall promoted a whole lot more good than bad, even in terms of comments. That being said, if he feels it's the only real way to truly regulate the hate-comments, then I of course respect that decision.

This is making me really sad.  I generally feel like he had quite a lot of fun with IG but some of the comments to him have been awful.  😭😭😭

Did he only have his main one and then Longshot?
