Jay-Z Deactivates Instagram Account After Using It for One Day

It looks like Jay-Z is not a big fan of Instagram. Less than 24 hours after launching his account on the photo-sharing platform, the “Empire State of Mind” hitmaker was caught deleting his page.

The 51-year-old hip-hop mogul made his account on Tuesday, November 2. To mark his debut, he shared a poster of his new film, “The Harder They Fall”. He had already amassed over 1.8 million followers.

Jay-Z only followed one person on the social media platform, none other than his wife, Beyonce Knowles. The “Reasonable Doubt” artist was also the only one whom the R&B star followed on the platform.

Unfortunately, when fans tried to visit @jayz, there’s an error message that read, “User not found.” This marked Jay-Z’s second time to quickly delete his Instagram page.

Back in 2015, the Roc-A-Fella co-founder made an account under the name @hovsince96. At that time, he let out a photo of himself with Michael Jackson. However, The New York Daily News reported that he deactivated the page just 14 hours later.

It is possible that Jay-Z made the account to promote “The Harder They Fall”, which he co-produce alongside The Bullitts a.k.a. Jeymes Samuel, James Lassiter as well as Lawrence Bender. The Western movie arrived in theaters on October 22 and hit giant streaming service Netflix on Wednesday.

“When outlaw Nat Love (Jonathan Majors) discovers that his enemy Rufus Buck (Idris Elba) is being released from prison he rounds up his gang to track Rufus down and seek revenge,” so read the synopsis. “Those riding with him in this assured, righteously new school Western include his former love Stagecoach Mary (Zazie Beetz), his right and left hand men – hot-tempered Bill Pickett (Edi Gathegi) and fast drawing Jim Beckwourth (R.J. Cyler) – and a surprising adversary-turned-ally.”
