Nicki Minaj has joined the list of celebs who plan to boycott Instagram over ‘likes’ feature.

The social media giant announced that it was to expand its removal of likes to the US after its test period in Ireland this year.

Instagram announced earlier in the week that it was to test the removal of Instagram likes in America soon.

Nicki Minaj came out against the move and claimed that she would no longer use the platform if the likes go.


Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri recently spoke about the move claiming that it is being done for “young people”.

“The idea is to try and depressurize Instagram. Make it less of a competition. Give people more space to focus on connecting with people that they love, things that inspire them”

The company has already rolled out the feature in other countries, including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Ireland, Italy, and Brazil.

Celebrities have come out against removing the feature including Cardi B and Juicy J whilst the likes of Kim Kardashian and Tracy Ells Ross are in favour of the move.
