Bella Hadid violated this cardinal rule about Instagram-creeping on your ex
Bella Hadid and The Weeknd broke up a lifetime ago and like well-adjusted humans promptly unfollowed each other on Instagram.
Why do most normal people unfollow their exes on Insta? Because thereâ€™s nothing worse on social media than accidentally liking a photo of your ex.
But hereâ€™s the thing about dating a celebrity: you canâ€™t get rid of their presence on your feed just by unfollowing them. Even if you delete all their f*ckboy friends too, inevitably theyâ€™ll do something interesting and magazines or newsy accounts will post about them, so you have to stay vigilant.
Sadly, on Monday night, Bella Hadid wasnâ€™t vigilant enough and found herself liking a photo of Abel Tesfaye that came up on her feed. Minutes later she realized her mistake and deleted the evidence, but the damage was already done.
While Bella Hadid doesnâ€™t follow The Weeknd anymore, she does follow The Shade Room. TBH, good for her. The Shade Roomâ€™s a great account.
Anyway, yesterday they posted about how he made the cover of Forbesâ€™ list of the 100 most highly paid celebrities, and poor Bella couldnâ€™t help herself from liking it.
Maybe she just wasnâ€™t thinking, saw a face she liked and thought, yeah Iâ€™d tap that, or maybe she just wasnâ€™t thinking, saw a picture of her ex where he looked good, and thought, yeah Iâ€™d still tap that.
Or maybe she just had a moment of being possessed by the YOLO spirit and just decided to stir up some shit.
Whatever happened, it didnâ€™t take long for Bella to snap out of her temporary moment of insanity and unlike the photo.
While it could have been a strong move to stand by her double tap and just look like a chill, supportive ex, itâ€™s kind of gratifying to be presented with proof that celebs make mistakes when it comes to their exes and Instagram too.
