Billie Eilish appears to have unfollowed every account on Instagram after allegedly vowing to unfollow accounts of abusers.
On Wednesday, fans of the singer noticed that the 18-year-old no longer follows any account on the social media platform, while she continues to be followed by 64.8 million users.
According to several Twitter users, Eilish recently shared a now-deleted post on her Instagram Stories which read: ‘If I am following your abuser DM ME & I will unfollow them. I support you [sic].’ The original Instagram post is yet to be verified by Eilish or her representatives.
It is believed that Eilish removed all 600 followed accounts from her account, including her brother and collaborator Finneas O’Connell. Some fans have speculated that Eilish's account has been hacked.

The news comes days after celebrities including Cole Sprouse, Lili Reinhart, Justin Bieber and Ansel Elgort were accused by several Twitter users of sexual assault – allegations the A-listers vehemently deny.
In light of the claims, Sprouse, Reinhart, Bieber have all revealed on Twitter that they plan to seek legal action.
We are looking into taking legal action. This kind of sick behavior only harms true survivors. This was incredibly triggering for me and scary because I’ve always supported survivors and believed them.

‘I want to be clear, there is no truth to this story,’ reads one of Bieber’s statements about the allegation levied against him.

Earlier this month, the singer revealed that she has never felt desired and often feels ‘trapped’ by the image she’s created.
‘My past boyfriends never made me feel desired,’ she told GQ magazine. ‘None of them. And it’s a big thing in my life that I feel I have never been physically desired by somebody.’
'So I dress the way I dress as I don’t like to think of you guys - I mean anyone, everyone - judging it, or the size of it. But that doesn’t mean that I won’t wake up one day and decide to wear a tank top, which I have done before.'
Earlier this year, the teenager shared the full-length footage of her Not My Responsibility video in which she addresses the body shaming she’s been victim to in recent years since becoming famous.
