People have been sending messages thinking it was anonymous and it's hella awkward 😬

If you've spend any time on Instagram this week, you're probably aware that the social platform rolled out yet ANOTHER update for Insta Stories.

The newest function "Questions" allows your followers to you ask you questions that you can answer back. It's just like Curious Cat only ten times more annoying because now everyone is doing it. Honestly, we were using stories for selfies, observing our favourite thirst traps and getting FOMO over people's tropical holidays vids. It's completely ruined all our fun.

Turns out, the update is ruining people's lives in other ways. Unfortunately, some people thought the function was anonymous. Yep. And A LOT of people have been sending really inappropriate questions to people thinking they can get away with it when, in fact, the recipients can see who sent the question. Prepare for the most awkward tweets you've ever seen in your life.

There are the boyfriends who told their girlfriends to lose weight.

Tbh he sounds like trash and you should dump him immediately.

There's people going round telling people they're ugly.

They can also go in the trash.

There are people out here who think they've been harassing their enemies in secret.

Oh dear.

I'm not sure a lot of these people deserve saving.

Sorry not sorry.

This is all kinds of f**ked up.

Who logs on to Instagram to drag a person's dog?

Oh, apparently a lot of people.

You're an awful human being.

This is a mild improvement.

At least he didn't say a dog had an almond shaped head.

Isn't this a compliment though?


Ah, that's where it went.

Go awfff sis.

Turns out, not everybody is an awful person.

Well done, Andrew.

The moral of this story folks is to NEVER write anything on the internet that you wouldn't say to a person's face. It ALWAYS comes back to haunt you in the end.
