Billie Eilish appears to have followed through on a promise she recently made to her Instagram followers. The young pop star has not been shy in speaking up for her beliefs, whether that be wearing whatever she wants to wear or vocalizing her support for the Black Lives Matter movement. She recently put out a short film, titled Not My Responsibility, that tackled issues of body-shaming– whether it be wearing too little, or too many, pieces of clothing.

Well, she continues to stand up for her fellow females in this latest IG move. The singer reportedly asked her followers to let her know if she was following any abusers. Whether sexual or physical, she wrote: “If I am following your abuser DM ME & I will unfollow them. I support you.”
Since sharing this on her IG Story, it looks like she’s gone ahead and cleaned up her following list. Despite having a familiarity with XXXTENTACION — his mom just recently shared a Billie Eilish tribute song on the anniversary of his death– she went ahead and unfollowed him. She’s also unfollowed a few other familiar names when it comes to allegations of abuse– Chris Brown and Justin Bieber got the axe. Additionally, it’s been reported that she also unfollowed Ansel Elgort, who has just recently came under fire after accusations from a girl known only as Gabby surfaced, claiming that he sexually assaulted her in 2014. Elgort denied those accusations.
However, it appears the unfollowing purge didn’t just stop there– her follower count has continued to dwindle as fans have pointed out, and currently it remains at 0.
Eilish has not commented further on this matter.
