Blockout 2024: action to block the accounts of celebrities who remain silent about Gaza

ISTANBUL (ANTARA) – A movement known as “Blockout 2024” is gaining traction on social media, calling on users to block the accounts of celebrities who remain silent on the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

People around the world have expressed frustration with celebrities who have not stood up and used their influence to draw attention to the dire situation in Gaza.

One TikTok user involved in the movement said its goal was to “stop certain streams of income and popularity” of celebrities.

According to Social Blade, a US-based social media analytics site, organized social media users are sharing lists of celebrities to block, leading to a significant loss of followers of some public figures on Instagram and other platforms.

Among them are singer and actress Selena Gomez, singer and actress Zendaya, social media influencer Kim Kardashian and her sister Kylie Jenner who have lost hundreds of thousands or even millions of followers on both Instagram and X.

In addition to this, there are also singers Beyonce and Rihanna and singer-songwriter Billie Eilish who have lost 1.1 million followers on Instagram.

The movement was sparked by a TikTok video of influencer Haley Kalil at the Met Gala on May 7, who lip-synced the phrase “Let them eat cake.”

This expression is similar to the French Revolution, when Queen Marie Antoinette’s indifference to the suffering of the poor became symbolic.

Kalil’s video received strong reactions on social media. One TikTok user shared a video saying, “It’s time for society to take a ‘digital guillotine’ on all celebrities who don’t use their resources to help those in desperate need.”
