With the proliferation of social media, it’s now simpler than ever for followers to to work together with their favourite celebrities on-line — except it’s T-Pain, apparently. The musician admitted that he simply discovered there’s a “requests” folder for Instagram messages, and he’s been by chance ignoring celebrities’ DMs for over two years.
T-Pain shared a video of him proudly owning as much as the error on TikTok. “I swear!! I’m just now seeing all these messages and mentions TODAY!!!!,” he wrote within the caption. “How do I super apologize? Press conference? Town hall meeting? I’m dumb.”
The video exhibits a clip of T-Pain’s face as he scrolls via the a whole lot of unread messages in his request folder from blue test accounts. There are messages from musicians like Diplo, Fergie, and YBN Nahmir. He additionally missed DMs from different celebrities like Viola Davis and Karl-Anthony Towns, in addition to main manufacturers like ESPN.
In the clip’s voice-over, T-Pain explains the state of affairs. “I was today years old when i found out about the request folder on Instagram that’s full of celebs trying to reach me,” it reads. “Dude is that Fergie?! smh. I’ve been accidentally straight up ignoring all these people for like 2 years. I thought DM’s are supposed to just show up in the normal folder and you dont have to go digging for all these. I apologize to everyone on this list and the hundreds of others I couldn’t fit in this video. These are just the ones I haven’t checked and replied to. Yup……. I’m stupid.”
