Kim Kardashian! After Instagram purged millions of spam and fake accounts, the Kardashian star is now officially the front-runner with 22.2 million. Justin Bieber, who was previously the most followed with 23.8 million, lost 3.5 million followers due to the spam purge, putting him in third place behind Kardashian and Beyoncé.

Other stars, like Selena Gomez and Ariana Grande, also lost followers in the millions. The great Instagram account purge seems to be generating mixed reactions from Instagrammers everywhere. Though most people would just like their high follower count back, even if those accounts were fakes. It should be noted that at least Instagram is doing something to get rid of the fake-account issue, right? Or do you just want those fifty, fake, followers back?
