It is clear that Billie Eilish has a massive amount of fanbase. However, recently she has been getting hate for something that was clearly obvious from the beginning. If you still don’t know what is happening around Billie Eilish, she came out with her sexuality.

In a recent interview with Variety’s Power of Women issue, global music sensation Billie Eilish opened up about her attraction to women. While the Grammy-winning artist expected her fans to be in the loop, it seems her revelation caused a surprising backlash on Instagram.

She has lost over 100k followers since came out.  On November 13, the day of the Variety cover release, Eilish boasted an impressive 110.3 million Instagram followers. However, as of December 3, her follower count has dipped to 110.2 million, marking a significant loss of 100,000 followers.

The drop in followers was particularly notable after Eilish reaffirmed her coming-out statement during a red carpet interview on December 2. 

When asked about her intention to come out, she responded surprisedly, stating, “I kind of thought, ‘Wasn’t it obvious?’ I didn’t realize people didn’t know. I just don’t really believe in it. I’m just like, ‘Why can’t we just exist’? I’ve been doing this for a long time, and I just didn’t talk about it. Whoops.”

100,000 followers is a small portion of Eilish’s massive fanbase. It still raises questions about the nature of fandom and how such revelations might affect an artist’s social media presence.

This isn’t the first time Eilish has faced a significant drop in followers due to a personal revelation. In 2021, a British Vogue cover shoot featuring Eilish in a corset resulted in the loss of 100,000 followers. It just shows what artists faces after expressing them authentically.
