What fans deem a “scandal” is sometimes just an innocent social media cleanse. Kendall Jenner was oblivious to the drama that would ensue after she quit Instagram last week, which she broke down on Ellen yesterday. Wearing what’s best described as silk pajamas, the supermodel said, “I just wanted a detox. I felt like I just wanted a bit of a break. I felt a little too dependent on it.” Fair enough.
“I also took Twitter off my phone,“ she continued. "Like, I didn’t delete my Twitter entirely; I just took the app off my phone, so I had no idea that anyone was talking about it and I honestly didn’t think anyone would even care,” Jenner said before posing a valid question we’ve all been asking ourselves. “I was like, ‘Why is this even this big of a deal?’[…] I’ll be back. I’ll come back!” So, everybody can stop freaking out now.
Speaking of big deals and Twitter, those who haven’t deleted the app might notice that Merriam-Webster is trending. Chalk it up to Ali Segel, a writer and sex columnist who retweeted the dictionary’s example of the word “femininity” in a sentence, which read, “She managed to become a CEO without sacrificing her femininity.“ In the words of Merriam-Webster—and you know they have a lot of them—oof. That’s literally what they tweeted back to Segal—“AND IT’S GONE. Oof. Sorry about that.”—after they removed their tone-deaf definition.
That should amount to a little vindication, even if Kendall is still missing from your feed.
