Instagram shocked its users last week with an announcement that the company would mass ban accounts that did not meet their policies and guidelines. Spam and bot accounts bore the brunt of this mass banning, and high-profile accounts watched as their followers plummeted. Among the victims were seemingly every superstar DJ, including Martin Garrix, Tiesto, Hardwell, deadmau5, Skrillex, Steve Aoki, and more. While the follower count fell immensely for many of these DJs, Instagram's new policy guarantees the legitimacy of most of their remaining followers. Socialblade collected the number of lost followers for notable producers, which you can view below:
Calvin Harris: -53,459
Martin Garrix: -29,888
David Guetta: -57,351
Nicky Romero: -20,948
Steve Aoki: -60,624
