Selena Gomez has been lending her 179 million followers on Instagram to various Black activists.
She is doing this as a way to inform her audience about the issues plaguing the Black community. Selena is the 4th most followed person on Instagram. Cristiano Ronaldo, Ariana Grande, and The Rock are ahead of her.
Killer Mike took over her Instagram on Wednesday. She introduced him on her Instagram before he took over her InstaStory.

Please meet Michael Render, professionally known as Killer Mike (@killermike). He is an activist, Grammy Award-winning rapper, one half of the rap duo Run the Jewels, and host of the Netflix series, “Trigger Warning with Killer Mike.” He and his wife, Shana, own the SWAG Shop barbershops in Atlanta. He is also co-owner, with Tip ‘T.I.’ Harris and Noel Khalil, of the historic Bankhead Seafood restaurant in Atlanta. He began organizing when he was 15, and was actually an organizer before he was a rapper. Today, Killer Mike’s taking over my Instagram!
He talked about supporting local candidates in your community, talked about his own feelings of misery and sadness at this time, the importance of filling out the census, and more.
He encouraged white people to look up Jane Elliott and her brown-eyed, blue-eyed experiment to understand privilege.
