Last night, rapper AKA shared his candid thoughts on the overuse of social media platform, Instagram.
Late last night, rapper AKA delivered a philosophical rant over Twitter about the scourge of social media abuse. His main gripe was with Instagram as he considered quitting the platform all-together. Here is what he had to say:
“I’m legit thinking of quitting Instagram. The pressure it’s putting on young men and women for material things is scary, and people like me are part of the problem without even knowing it. That thing was created for one purpose, for you to want things you don’t actually need.”
“There must be more to life than Instagram.”
“You go on Instagram, and it legit sucks you in on every level. You scroll and scroll and scroll and click and click and click, your mind completely devouring everything. Every bag, every holiday, every car, every new product that you are told you NEED in order to feel complete.”
“I don’t have all the answers but damn. Mybexplore page is pure poison. Im not trying to judge anyone … I just need some more peace in my life.”
“Is it possible to be addicted to Instagram and still be grateful for what you have? …. I don’t think so.”
“Why are you so hungry to know what people are thinking or saying about you??… if you can figure that out, control it, and manage it … I think you will find the key to mastering social media.”
The tirade received mostly positive comments from followers who felt they could relate to the rapper’s feelings about the social media platform. However, AKA has not quit Instagram having posted just a few hours ago.
