👻 📱 😮 On Twitter, T-Pain revealed that he just discovered he had been ghosting other celebrities on social media. He was clueless about the request folder on Instagram. His video reached over 2 million views. Will we be hearing some new T-Pain collabs in the near future? We hope so! T-Pain’s quote:
“I was today years old when I found out about the request folder on Instagram that’s full of celebs trying to reach me. Dude, is that Fergie?! SMH. I’ve been accidentally straight up ignoring these people for like two years.”
