LOS ANGELES, CA. (THECOUNT) — Britney Spears’ Instagram account – has vanished along with her 34M followers as of Tuesday.
Visitors to Spears’ profile were greeted with the message “user not found.” According to a screenshot posted to Twitter, Spears’ profile was deactivated after she posted a message in support of the #FreeBritney movement, which has advocated to end the conservatorship that has controlled Spears’ life for more than a decade, reports vice.
With its 34 million followers, Spears’ Instagram was viewed as one of the icon’s few ways to directly communicate with her fans—if not her only avenue. Before Spears went public about her thoughts on the conservatorship, followers combed over her sometimes-cryptic posts for clues about her life and inner thoughts.
A spokesperson for the Facebook company, which runs Instagram, told VICE News over email that the platform didn’t delete Spears’ account.
Over the weekend, fellow singer, Lana Del Rey, also deleted all of her social media accounts.
