Kendall used Instagram not only for personal reasons but also for work, with her huge amount followers arguably helping her get hired for jobs.
‘I feel like I would wake up in the morning and I would look at it first thing, I would go to bed and it was the last thing I would look at,’ Kendall explained. ‘I felt a little dependent on it. It’s a detox.’
Kendall’s Instagram detox shocked the world and within hours the news had spread to news outlets all over the world. However the leggy brunette revealed she was oblivious to the uproar she caused.
‘It's so crazy to me that it even became huge news like that,’ the 21-year-old admitted. ‘I mean I guess I didn't expect it but I also took my Twitter off my phone. I didn't delete my Twitter entirely but I took the app off my phone so I had no idea anyone was even talking about it and I honestly didn't think anybody would care.'
When Ellen questioned if Kendall has plans to come back to Instagram, Kendall reassured her fans her detox wouldn’t be forever.
‘It’s been two days!’ Kendall laughed. ‘I’ll be back. I’ll come back.’
