In our modern digital age, Instagram followers are as good as dollars. For those lucky enough to be born with beauty, making money on social media has become a viable career option, making it an incredibly competitive market. For some time, the most followed woman on the platform has been Kylie Jenner, who’s spent nearly her entire life in the spotlight. Recently, however, she was surpassed by Disney channel alum Selena Gomez, seemingly leading to some drama between the two.

After the Rare Beauty founder surpassed the reality star, internet sleuths kept an eagle eye out for a reaction from Jenner. After Gomez posted about accidentally over laminating her eyebrows online, some detectives thought they found it in the form of the mother of two showing off her own brows on her Story. The gossip began circulating rapidly online. As a result, accusations from fans became so intense that both women shut down the accusations.

Did Kylie Shade Selena?

On TikTok, Jenner responded to a creator reporting on the alleged feud. “This is reaching,” she wrote earlier this month. “No shade towards Selena ever and I didn’t see her eyebrow posts! [You] guys are making something out of nothing. This is silly.” Gomez got wind of her alleged enemies’ comments and also chimed in. “Agreed @kyliejenner. It’s all unnecessary. I’m a fan of Kylie!”

Despite their best efforts to destroy the drama, internet trolls are continuing to seek out signs of trouble. A few days ago, many of them noted that the “Lose You To Love Me” songstress has been absent from some apps since February 22. In wake of all the hateful energy brooding around her and Jenner, Gomez told fans she had plans to take a few days off from social media to recoup.

As DailyMail notes, it was hitting the 381M follower mark on IG that pushed the actress past her fellow makeup mogul. Jenner previously had 380M but has since dropped to 379M in the days following her “shady” post. Gomez, on the other hand, has continued to steadily grow and now has 389M followers cheering her on.
