The model caused quite a stir when she suddenly deleted her account, abandoning her 68 million followers. How on earth would they survive without Kendall Jenner’s selfies?
When she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show a couple days later, she explained her decision to ditch Instagram. Her reasoning actually would have made a whole lot of sense if she had stuck to it.
