Blake Lively threw us all for a loop earlier this week when she wiped her Instagram account clean, only following women with the name Emily Nelson—the moniker of her character in the new film A Simple Favor.
Even Lively's husband, Ryan Reynolds, didn't make the cut, which he seemed to take very personally: "It definitely stings,” he jokingly said during an interview with Australian show "Smallzy's Surgery." “It’s a terrible way to find out that I’ve been kicked out of the house, to be honest. Absolutely terrible. I don’t know where rage like that comes from.”
The Deadpool actor and the rest of the world can rest assured that it was all for publicity, as order has officially been restored on social media. On Friday night, Lively reinstated her Instagram page, uploading all of her lost photos and began following her husband of six years again on the app.
It took only a couple of days for the actress to return to social media, and she did so for a very important reason: fashion.
We'll allow Blake to explain: "Reuploading my page and loving this excuse to post this outfit from last month that I forgot to post the next day," she wrote alongside a photo of herself dressed in a gingham dress and camel coat. "Because after a couple days it’s strange to post, like you’re hung up on how awesome you were 2 days ago. Which highlights how lame you are now by comparison to how cool you were when you wore that amazing outfit."
She continued: "So you wait a week or so for a #tbt. But then you realize it’s way too soon for a #tbt, what were you thinking??! You should’ve just posted the next day! ! What are you gonna do now?!? You can’t let that outfit go unposted! And then you realize something even more important— you’ve lost your cool entirely. Thanks social media. You’ve officially taken my chill."
This isn't the first time Reynolds and Lively have trolled each other over social media, and we have a feeling it won't be their last. Now, the only question that remains is: How will Ryan repay his wife for her ultimate Instagram prank?
