You give them an inch, and they take a mile. Adele says her social media privileges were revoked after posting a controversial photo on Instagram.
Adele joined ‘NikkieTutorials’ YouTube makeup series, where she shared she doesn’t have access to her social media accounts. When Nikkie asked Adele about receiving DMs, she responded that she never had the passwords to her pages.
“No, in Covid, they let me have my password. I was never allowed by passwords for my socials before. That’s actually quite a well-known fact. But obviously, the internet was on fire during Covid. It kept everyone’s morale up,” Adele says.
Nikkie then inquired if she couldn’t have her password due to her responding to everyone. Adele denied that claim and said her team didn’t want her to act out on emotions.
“No, no, I think they were just worried that if I got drunk or annoyed… Not really about responding to anyone, more just posting my general thoughts,” she added.
Adele also mentions how she only posted one picture of herself before her password was snatched away again. “Then I posted a picture, which a lot of people know about. It’s the only picture I posted myself… and then they took my password away from me again.”
Even though the international star didn’t specify which photo it was, many can speculate she was referring to the controversial Bantu Knot picture. Adele received backlash in August 2020 for posting a picture of herself in a Jamaican bikini top, sporting the Bantu Knot hairstyle. The singer was accused of cultural appropriation & has since apologized for the photo.
“I didn’t read the f***ing room. I was wearing a hairstyle that is actually to protect Afro hair. Ruined mine, obviously.”
