Those almost hard-to-comprehend numbers of followers that we see near the names of celebrities' social media accounts can make it seem as if there's no way they could ever notice us. Luckily (or not), it's not as impossible as it sometimes appears to be. As it turns out, some folks out there manage to not only grab the attention of someone famous but even get the pleasure of being blocked by them.
Recently, Reddit user u/hugocaldera6 hit up the platform with a pretty interesting question that quickly received a lot of attention: "Which celebrity has blocked you on social media and why?" they asked fellow users. As of now, the thread has over 7,000 answers from Redditors sharing their best stories about getting blocked by celebrities and famous brand accounts on social media. Without further ado, Bored Panda invites you to look at some of the best ones.
