Billionaire’s Wife Back On Instagram After Bullying Woman To Hand Over Handle With Same Last Name

Katherine Asplundh, known as the billionaire bride who bullied another woman with the same name, has made a comeback on Instagram.

The Pennsylvania billionaire heir’s wife appeared to make a hasty exit from Instagram after her private messages with the other Katherine went viral on social media. Her aggressive bullying of the woman sparked massive backlash from social media users, prompting her to deactivate her account.

Highlights
  • Billionaire bride, Katherine Asplundh, returned to Instagram after bullying scandal
  • She went viral last month after trying to buy an Instagram handle from another woman with the name Katherine Asplundh
  • Her private chats with the woman received immense backlash from people online

However, not long after seemingly deleting her Instagram in May this year, the billionaire bride returned to Instagram to share pictures from the wedding of her brother-in-law, Carl, who tied the knot with his longtime partner of five years, Savanna Smith, on Saturday.

“Special day celebrating Carl and Savanna,” read her Instagram story caption with a picture of the couple from their wedding ceremony.

She also posed in a multi-colored dress on a grassy yard in subsequent stories.

In addition to taking a break from Instagram, the new Mrs. Asplundh took a brief hiatus from TikTok as well but has now returned to the platform in the last few days.

Followers from her 88.8k fan base on TikTok welcomed her back and were glad to see new clips added to her grid.

After marrying 27-year-old Cabot Asplundh from the Asplundh family—owners of the Asplundh Tree Expert Co.—the recently married wife approached the fellow Instagram user and asked if she could buy her @katherineasplundh handle.

The other Katherine shared screenshots of her chat with the bride on Reddit with the title “Katherine Drisc Asplundh harassing me?”

“Hi I was wondering if I could purchase your username from you. Just got married and this is my new name!” read the message from the tree service heir’s spouse.

The other Katherine responded by first congratulating the billionaire bride and then voicing her concerns about getting banned if she sold her username.

“Is there anyway I can get you to change your username one more time?” asked the billionaire’s wife

After a brief exchange, the Asplundh spouse turned aggressive with her approach and began accusing the other woman of using a fake name.

“I actually don’t believe that your name is Katherine Asplundh who would make their finsta their actual name?” she wrote. “I reported you to Instagram and they’re actually able to tell me your real name I really hope I don’t know you because that’s gonna be really embarrassing for you.”

When the conversation heated up more, the other Katherine also reported the newlywed and said she would have given the account for free if she was nice.

People online came in support of the other Katherine and created multiple fake accounts with handles similar to the one the billionaire Bridezilla asked for.

Although the backlash prompted her to take a step back from social media, the new Mrs. Asplundh now appears to be back on social media and was welcomed back by fans.

Several people were happy to see the woman back on social media with new content

Yes, because there are a lot of crappy hostile entitled people out there, and they tend to like each other. (Insert political reference here)

Was just waiting for her to go all the way and tell her more about the family. What a classless entitled individual. Is likely to be discarded soon anyway by this family. They should be mortified.
