What happened to Rihanna’s instagram account?


Rihanna’s fans were unable to access her Instagram account this afternoon, which led to speculation that the social media site had deleted her page, for good.

Last week, Instagram asked Rihanna to take down topless shots of herself to which she obliged, but later posted the same raunchy snaps on Twitter.

But this afternoon Rihanna’s Instagram account wasn’t visible at all and her fans became extremely upset as a result.

Users who tried to visit her @badgalriri page were met with the message: “This page could not be found.”

Fans immediately thought Rihanna had been banned from Instagram and began to trend  #InstagramBringBackRihannaBack as a result.

Whether it was a tech glitch or an actual ban, fans can rest easy as Rihanna’s account is up and running again.
