It always amazes me that people will devote entire topics to celebrities who follow and unfollow each other on Instagram. On top of this, it goes to show you that you have to be careful about what you like on Instagram since people will know what you’ve been liking if they follow you. The way that it works with celebrities is that sometimes they don’t unfollow their exes because they know that fans will be scrutinizing. As for my cover, The L Word was infamous for its iconic photo of naturally censored nudity. I found the variation of the photo on Tumblr. Fittingly, my article is about the observers on a lesbian forum called The L Chat. Below are a series of comments where fans and non-fans talk about the Insta activities of celebrities. The first comment may have something to do with the fact that the original version of Into the Forest contained a scene derived from the novel where the two sisters engaged in incest as a coping mechanism after the sexual assault inflicted on Evan Rachel Wood’s character.
June 2, 2014 (Ellen Page and Jamie Bell)
Think about it: Jamie unfollowed her, not ERW’s other friends, but he unfollowed Ellen…I think that says enough.
October 1, 2019 (Kate Mara and ERW)
As soon as Kate and Jamie started dating, she unfollowed Kate and that’s when she stopped following Ellen.
Jun 08, 2019 (Lauren Abedini and Brittenelle Fredericks)
Lol it’s real, Lauren and Brittenelle unfollowed each other. Wonder what happened between them, they have been friends for years. And what’s wrong with Britt, because every few months she unfollows some of her closest friends. Now she’s super friendly with this nicmercado girl again, after months of bad blood. Nonsense.
Sep 19, 2019 (Ruby Rose and Jess Origliasso)
Anyone else think it’s strange that Ruby unfollows people then goes back to their page to look, comment or like? If you have made the point to unfollow, why can’t she just leave them alone. She did the same with Jess. It’s creepy.
Sep 25, 2017 (Alicia Cargile and Kristen Stewart)
How many times did Alicia cheat on Kristen with Juno Temple? Afterall, she was in leaked pics with her and she is on Juno’s IG for a long time.
December 25, 2015 (Cloris Leachman hinted that this actress is closeted)
In other news, I had no idea Shannon Woodward was under such suspicion. (Looking very gay with Katy Perry on multiple occasions, vacationing with Carrie Brownstein, Sarah Paulson nominating Shannon for the taco-and-beer challenge because “I know you like to eat a taco”).
Jan 23, 2015 (Holly Miranda)
It’s been quite obvious though there was something between Holly and Shannon the last few months. Shannon never tweeted Holly and very rarely commented on IG but flew across the country at least 3 times to spend time with her. Shannon was still liking Holly’s IG posts over a week ago even though both no longer followed one another.
Jan 25, 2015 (a love triangle but no ménage à trois despite the reciprocation)
As a Holly fan, it’s pretty obvious there was more than friendship. Shannon, though (if she is Bi) is closeted; that’s why these public photos with Carrie are surprising if more than friends. No photo ever with Holly, and limited interaction on social media, yet Shannon flew to Portland, Detroit and New York to spend time with Holly.
Jan 28, 2015 (Carrie “Sleater Kinney” Brownstein)
She’s known Shannon since at least August of 2014. Carrie started following Shannon‘s private IG about 3 weeks ago. IMO they decided to start dating recently and Carrie brought Shannon to Baja with her.
Feb 27, 2015 (Carrie)
Brief synopsis of CB/SW: They went on a vacation together for a week with Carrie’s friends, all couples – pictures of them together. Shannon flew across the country to see Carrie and has been there for almost a week. Shannon is following a lot of the people on the tour on IG and they’re following her back. Shannon’s ex had a slight meltdown at the end of December and unfollowed Shannon & Carrie.
Feb 28, 2015
Until Shannon is out of the pic, I think they are just friends even if Taylor becomes SK’s next groupie. Shannon has been together with CB far longer than we want to dismiss. They were not spotted together for the past 5-6 months while Shannon has been going to vacations and becomes C’s plus one for functions.
March 1, 2015
To me, it’s bizarre that Carrie barely acknowledged Shannon on sm. I mean, they’re good enough friends to go on vacations to Mexico and Shannon flies across the country to attend multiple SK shows yet there’s no banter. I know sm isn’t the only way to guage things but Carrie is generally pretty interactive with her close friends.
March 18, 2015 (Taylor Schilling)
It’s kinda funny how after someone mentioned Shannon hadn’t been commenting on or liking Carrie’s IG or her friends IG things that Shannon was all over their IGs today. She also posted that exes tweet right as it was being discussed in the TS thread that Carrie and Taylor were back together. Conclusion: Shannon is posting here and clearly taking pap shots of Taylor for us.
May 1, 2015 (Shannon was the rebound a.k.a. romance ricochet)
One part of me is very inclined to think that maybe they never split for those 3/4 months and somehow managed to fly under the radar. However, when Shannon Woodward posted that “exes resume” thing, it definitely seemed to fall in line with a possible CB/TS reunion sooo…??
November 15, 2014 (Kate Moennig and Holly Miranda)
I know for a fact that KM unfollowed HM’s friend Sylvia at the same time as HM. Perhaps there were creative differences btwn the 2 or perhaps a million other reasons which we will never know.
September 24, 2017 (the stars of Broad City versus the star of Portlandia)
Ilana unfollowed Carrie (who she was v. good friends with) on IG and Twitter. Imo, it only make sense if Carrie broke up with Abbi.
November 8, 2017 (what transpired after the birthday party of Cara Delevingne’s sister)
If she’s the one breaking up, she doesn’t unfollow. If she’s the one getting dumped, she unfollows and blocks (a couple of times). Cara unfollowed Paris on her private after Poppy’s party.
May 28, 2018 (Cara tiring of Paris Jackson)
She never unfollows anyone on her public account. She did unfollow her on her out one a month or more ago.
Dec 20, 2018 (Sara “Fancy Hipster” Dinkin, Camila Gray and Alicia Cargile)
What I find weird is that both Sara and Camila were following Alicia but unfollowed once they started hanging with Kristen, although they didn’t have to cause both K & A don’t mind it. Sara was also very close to Brittenelle at some point but not anymore!
Dec 21, 2018 (Stella Maxwell and Sara share clothes)
Those pants that Sara are wearing, didn’t Stella wear them too? I think that’s Kristen’s thing to get her girls to wear her clothes until it’s over. Stella stopped wearing her clothes after those unfollows.
Aug 20, 2019 (Something was stewing with K-Stew)
Kristen finally stopped following Sara on IG, Emma Roberts too. The song Sara posted shortly after the unfollows: Double Life – The Cars. 😂
Jun 28, 2018 (Katherine Langford attempting to cover her tracks)
So she unfollows 2 gay clubs to avoid/eliminate suspicion but she puts a double rainbow in her IG bio for pride? That makes perfect sense, Katherine.
