After inciting Internet panic when she wiped her Instagram account clean of all content and unfollowed everyone (including her husband Ryan Reynolds), with the exception of some very lucky Insta users named Emily Nelson, Blake Lively appears to have made a full return to the platform and, phew.
As of Saturday morning, it appears everything is back to normal on Blake’s Instagram — well, almost everything anyway. All of her previous posts have reappeared, and she’s since uploaded a photo of one of her flawless outfits with a very relatable caption about why social media truly sucks sometimes.
Reuploading my page and loving this excuse to post this outfit from last month that I forgot to post the next day. Because after a couple days it’s strange to post, like you’re hung up on how awesome you were 2 days ago. Which highlights how lame you are now by comparison to how cool you were when you wore that amazing outfit. So you wait a week or so for a #tbt. But then you realize it’s way too soon for a #tbt, what were you thinking??! You should’ve just posted the next day! ! What are you gonna do now?!? You can’t let that outfit go unposted! And then you realize something even more important— you’ve lost your cool entirely. Thanks social media. You’ve officially taken my chill.
While she’s unfollowed all of the Emily Nelsons (bummer), one account @hope.for.emily still remains — which, upon closer inspection, appears to be a promo for her upcoming movie A Simple Favor, in which her character Emily mysteriously disappears.
Oh, and it’s also worth noting that the only other person Blake is now following is, yes, her husband Ryan Reynolds — meaning we can expect their hilarious Insta antics to resume soon. Which is a good thing, because Ryan also seemed pretty *hurt* by his wife’s social media snub, as per his interview with Australian radio program Smallzy’s Surgery.
“I’m very sad about that. Definitely stinks,” he said when asked about the matter. “It’s a terrible way to find out that I’ve been kicked out of the house, to be honest. Absolutely terrible. I don’t know where rage like that comes from.” (Lol.)
A Simple Favor doesn’t hit theaters until September, but in the meantime, check out the trailer below:
