Billie Eilish just asked her Instagram followers a question about ‘abusers’, before unfollowing every single person… except one unidentified account.

Late on Tuesday evening, Eilish reportedly took to her Instagram stories to post a meme with the words:

If I am following your abuser, DM me and I will unfollow them. I will support you.

Everyone, except for one person who – at the time of writing – doesn’t show up when trying to open the link.

Among the list of celebrities the “Bad Guy” singer unfollowed were Chris Brown, who was convicted in 2009 of assaulting his girlfriend at the time, Rihanna, as well as the late rapper XXXTentacion, who was reportedly recorded admitting to domestic abuse.

Eilish is yet to publicly confirm her reasons for unfollowing everyone.
