Kylie’s disabled all the comments on her Instagram account to stop people promoting themselves on her account.
Given that she’s pretty much the queen of self promotion, we wouldn’t have thought that Kylie Jenner would mind others following in her footsteps… but it seems that isn’t quite the case.
Kylie announced last night that she is disabling the comments on her Instagram account to stop her fans from using it to promote their own pages or beg for likes.
So I'm trying out disabling my comments on Instagram because I'm done w people self promoting & the "LB"s— Kylie Jenner (@KylieJenner) August 2, 2016
Sick of seeing people asking others to follow them or commenting ‘LB’ to ask for others to ‘like’ their posts back, Kylie took the fairly drastic step – and it’s safe to say the reaction to that move was mixed.

@KylieJenner why do you care? All you do is promote yourself and your brand but when other people do it, it's annoying? Conceited.— Elisbath (@eliesther42) August 2, 2016

@KylieJenner a Kardashian/Jenner is done with people self promoting?— joseph (@JoebafemiMart) August 2, 2016
Instagram recently revealed a tool to help celebrities block comments, and users can choose to filter certain offensive terms rather than block all comments entirely.
Oh Kylie, we never thought you’d mind your 70million followers helping each other out with a like or two…
