This is Why Kendall Jenner Deleted Instagram

Kendall Jenner has one of the most followed accounts on instagram, so it came as a shock when she decided press delete. Now, the model has revealed why she took a step back from social media – because she wanted to detox. She was shocked that so many people were surprised by the move and that it even became a big headline:

“It’s so crazy to me that it even became huge news like that. Like, I have no idea how that [happened]. I mean, like, I guess I didn’t expect it. I also took my Twitter off my phone. Like, I didn’t delete my Twitter entirely, but I took the app off my phone, so I had no idea anyone was even talking about it. I honestly didn’t even think anyone would care. My friends kept texting me and my family members and I was like, ‘How does everyone know?’ And they kept sending me links to, like, CNN and all these things and I was like, ‘Why is this even that big of a deal?’ It’s so crazy.”

She explains that she felt too dependant on instagram and wanted to simply take a break, so she deleted the app from her phone for a few days:

“I just wanted to detox. I felt like I just wanted a little bit of a break. I’m always on it … I would wake up in the morning and I would look at it first thing, I would go to bed and it was the last thing I would look at. I felt a little too dependent on it, so I kinda wanted to take a minute to detox.”

She adds that she won’t be gone forever and plans to return to instagram soon:

“I’ll be back. I’ll come back. It’s been two days! Withdrawals are starting to occur.”
