Instagram Questions Are NOT Anonymous And People Are Freaking Out

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.
How can my boy think the Instagram question thing is anonymous so he told his own girl she needs to lose weight 😭— S4IF 🐺 (@S4IFF) July 11, 2018
Tbh he sounds like trash and you should dump him immediately.
There's people going round telling people they're ugly.
Just realised those instagram question things in the stories isnt anonymous lmao I just told 3 random people that they're kinda ugly af 😭😭😭— ᴛxяʙᴢ (@txrbz) July 11, 2018
They can also go in the trash.
There are people out here who think they've been harassing their enemies in secret.
Didn’t realize that the Instagram question thing wasn’t anonymous, so I accidentally asked my secret nemesis “Why are you such a bitch” yikes.— anna (@anna_hawersaat) July 11, 2018
I'm not sure a lot of these people deserve saving.

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.
Yo I didn’t know those ig questions weren’t anonymous and I told someone their head was shaped like an almond— Henry (@HenryOr_) July 11, 2018
At least he didn't say a dog had an almond shaped head.
Isn't this a compliment though?
Would’ve been nice to know that the Instagram questions weren’t anonymous before I asked someone why they look like waluigi— ry (@wetpaintt) July 12, 2018
Ah, that's where it went.

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.
