There was a large voter turnout for the 2020 presidential election and that wasn’t a coincidence. People, both famous and not, were very vocal about the importance of voting and encouraging others to partake in the election.
That should all be a good thing, but some people don’t seem to feel that way. Vanderpump Rules cast member Ariana Madix had been encouraging people to vote, sending out reminders for election deadlines, and sharing other pertinent information throughout 2020. Apparently, that turned off a few thousand people because they decided to click “unfollow” on Ariana’s Instagram page.
According to the website ShowBiz CheatSheet, Ariana revealed that she lost 4,000 followers in a recent Instagram Story, which she attributes to posting about voting.
She said that the Instagram follower decrease was “worth every one of them leaving seeing the voter turnout and [people] more involved in the process. Good riddance.”

I totally understand the need to take a break from election content by enjoying something a little lighter to watch/read, I.e. Reality Tea, but it is somewhat surprising that so many people were turned off by Ariana encouraging them to use their voice during an election year. Then again, this is 2020, nothing should surprise me at this point.
When it comes down to it, it’s just impossible to please everyone. Some people want to see more “serious” content from reality TV stars and pop culture websites. Others just want a light and fluffy escape. Basically, you’re damned if you do and you’re damned if you don’t.
