Mass Blocking of Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian Due to Viral Gaza Trend

Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian are two prominent celebrities who have been facing a significant amount of blocking on social media platforms. This surge in blocking is directly related to the ongoing Israel-Palestine war, along with several other contentious issues.

The past few days have seen a significant decline in followers for both superstars, who interestingly happen to be archenemies. This decline aligns with a larger trend happening on the internet, where people are actively boycotting celebrities.

You may have already heard about this by now, especially after the Met Gala, when the entire movement gained momentum and regular people joined in to prevent A-listers from attending.

Fans are now unfollowing their favorite celebrities primarily due to the situation in Gaza, which is currently embroiled in a conflict resulting in widespread death and destruction. Many people feel that Hollywood’s elite have not adequately addressed or spoken out in support of Palestine, prompting this backlash from fans.

According to social media trackers, reports suggest that both Kim and Taylor have experienced a significant drop in their follower count on platforms like TikTok and Instagram. It is estimated that they have lost more than 100,000 followers each as a result of this ongoing campaign that has gained traction on these platforms.

Given the massive number of followers they both have, the impact may seem insignificant. However, as time goes on, there is a possibility that it could have a significant effect, which is ultimately the desired outcome for these individuals.

The assumption is that if these celebrities experience a significant drop in their follower count, it will potentially affect their earnings from sponsored posts and other similar opportunities. However, it is uncertain whether this strategy will yield the desired results.

In addition to that, there is also the aspect of ordinary people expressing their dissatisfaction with the inequality between classes in society. They are specifically pointing out celebrities for not utilizing their influence and resources to make a significant difference in the world. So, this adds another dimension to the conversation.

Kim and Taylor’s responses to the war in the Middle East have been mostly silence. However, Kim recently spoke out when a pro-Palestine protester interrupted her event in Germany, stating that everyone deserves to be free.

Kim expressed her empathy for both the people of Israel and Palestine, stating, “It’s okay, free everybody.” She emphasized the importance of creating a safe and inclusive environment where everyone can feel secure and free. Kim further stressed the significance of treating others with respect, urging others to treat them in the same way they would like to be treated. She acknowledged the challenging and unsettling nature of the current times.

Taylor, on the other hand, has remained silent on the matter. However, her “Eras” tour movie continued to be screened in Israel despite the attacks on October 7 and the subsequent controversy.

Many young people online are expressing their dissatisfaction with both of their reactions (or lack thereof) to the turmoil, and as a result, they are attempting to diminish their follower count as a form of retaliation.
