Kylie Jenner has now lost nearly a million Instagram followers in just a few days after appearing to 'mock' Selena Gomez.
To get you up to scratch on things, the reality TV star and her pal Hailey Bieber were accused of roasting Selena after she accidentally laminated her eyebrows too much.
Not long after the singer's amusing clip about her eyebrow fail, Kylie took to Instagram to share two Stories, the first showing her face alongside the text: "Was this an accident???"
This was shortly followed by a screenshot of The Kardashians star and Hailey's eyebrows while on Facetime.
Many fans took this as a dig, and the two friends have since been branded the 'mean girls' of social media.
Although spectators were entirely convinced the posts were made to 'mock' Selena, both she and Kylie took to the comments section of a TikTok video on the alleged drama to set the record straight.
The latter kicked things off, writing: "This is reaching. No shade towards Selena ever and I didn’t see her eyebrow posts! U guys are making something out of nothing. This is silly."
And the singer also appeared keen to shut down the speculation too, replying to Kylie's message: "Agreed @kyliejenner. It's all unnecessary. I'm a fan of Kylie!"
The end... just kidding.
Despite the celebs' insistence that there's no bad blood between them, fans aren't having it and a majority are taking Selena's side.
And this is reflected in their Instagram following count.
Last week, we reported on the latest stats which showed that Kylie's page dropped a whopping 124,711 followers from Wednesday (February 22).
But this figure has only descended further, with the latest Social Blade data indicating that she's now lost nearly 750,000 followers since the same date.
All that being said, that's barely a drop in the ocean for Jenner, who still has a whopping 379 million people following her account.
The whole thing has had the opposite effect for Selena, however, as she recently overtook Kylie as the most popular woman on Instagram.
And in the same period of time, the Spring Breakers star has gained more than 7.4 million new followers, taking her count from more than 380 million to 388 million.
Though it's clear to see the majority are on her side, Selena has decided to take a break from social media.
The singer explained: "I’m going to be taking a second from social media, because this is a little silly.
"I’m 30 and am too old for this. But I love you so much and I’ll see you guys sooner than later.
"I’m just gonna take a break from everything."
UNILAD has contacted a rep for Kylie Jenner for comment.
