LOS ANGELES: The American actress and singer, Selena Gomez, has lost one million followers on Instagram and 100,000 on X amid the ‘Blackout 2024’ movement.

This movement, gaining traction on social media, intends to make celebrities responsible for their silence about the ongoing Israeli attacks in Gaza.

The ‘Blackout 2024′ list includes many celebrities like Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber, Kylie Jenner, Zendaya, Alia Bhatt, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, Priyanka Chopra, and others.

These celebrities, with millions of fans, face criticism for not speaking out against injustice rather than prioritizing their dazzling lives.

‘Blackout 2024’ underlines social media’s influence in holding celebrities and influencers accountable for their actions and silence.
