Cara Delevingne bids farewell to lost followers after an #MuteRKelly post
After posting an Instagram voicing her shock and outrage following the release of the tell-all documentary “Surviving R. Kelly”, Cara Delevingne lost some 50k followers and subsequently had something to say about it. In a wordy Instagran caption, the model-turned-actress expressed disappointed and also resolved to continue to speak out and express forward-thinking ideas. “The followers I lose clearly don’t agree with what I have to say, people that support the ideas and actions of others who are moving backwards and not forwards. In 2019, I want to be more confrontational. Confrontation IS NOT VIOLENCE btw, it’s communication,” she wrote, continuing, “It’s going to be a loud year.”

This is me realizing I lost more than 50,000 followers yesterday after posting about @rkelly Every time I say something real, something I truly believe, something others may think of as controversial, something that makes people think and ask questions, I lose followers. The followers I lose clearly don’t agree with what I have to say, people that support the ideas and actions of others who are moving backwards and not forwards. In 2019, I want to be more confrontational. Confrontation IS NOT VIOLENCE btw, it’s communication. Something I still struggle with. I have always been taught to avoid confrontation at all costs, which caused me to be silent most of my life, silence causes suppression and suppression causes sickness. Not anymore! Goodbye silence and backwards followers, hello confrontation and forward thinkers. It’s going to be a loud year xxx #MuteRKelly
