Pop singer Billie Eilish faced a decline in Instagram followers after revealing her attraction to girls in an interview.

The LGBT outlet Out portrayed the follower loss as a hate crime, blaming conservatives.

“She hasn’t always been a girl’s girl. In fact, she’s spent much of her life plagued by the assumption that other women don’t like her,” Variety’s Katcy Stephan wrote. (Trending: Joe Biden Admits He’s ‘Not Sure’ About Running If Trump Wasn’t)

“I’ve never really felt like I could relate to girls very well,” Eilish said.

“I love them so much. I love them as people. I’m attracted to them as people. I’m attracted to them for real.”

“I have deep connections with women in my life, the friends in my life, the family in my life… I’m physically attracted to them. But I’m also so intimidated by them and their beauty and their presence.”

“But it seems like Eilish’s actual coming-out statement in the Variety feature is now causing some real damage to her Instagram reach, having lost 100,000 followers already,” Variety wrote.

“Plus, there’s a chance that her recent red-carpet interview confirming that she ‘came out’ could make the rounds among conservative crowds, which would make her an even bigger target for homophobic vitriol.”

“It’s always upsetting to see anyone being targeted for their sexual orientation and/or gender expression, and it’s pretty astounding that even a superstar as big as Eilish isn’t exempt from facing homophobic backlash.”

“We’ve always been huge Billie Eilish stans, and we’re now ready to protect her at all costs from homophobes mobilizing against her.”

However, Eilish criticized the way her comments were portrayed and expressed disinterest in the issue.

“[T]hanks variety for my award and for also outing me on a red carpet at 11 am instead of talking about anything else that matters,” she wrote.

“[I] like boys and girls leave me alone about it please literally who cares…”

The Left is known for creating false victimhood, and common sense would suggest that the follower loss could be due to various reasons, including Instagram’s removal of bots.
