Jay-Z deletes Instagram account


American rapper and business mogul, Jay-Z has left Instagram after joining the social media platform for a day and amassed over 1.5 million followers.

The multiple award-winning superstar joined Instagram on Wednesday, November 3, 2021, followed only his wife, Beyonce on the platform, then shared a photo from Netflix’s The Harder They Fall film, which he co-produced.

He also uploaded an Instagram Story featuring a premiere countdown clock for the film. However, by the next day, he deleted the account.

Jay-Z created the film, The Harder They Fall in collaboration with producer and director Jeymes Samuel, and producers Lawrence Bender, G. Mac Brown and James Lassiter.

Last month, the rapper opened up about why representation in Hollywood was important to him. The film features an all-Black cast, including Elba, King, Jonathan Majors, LaKeith Stanfield, Zazie Beetz, Edi Gathegi, R.J. Cyler, Delroy Lindo, Danielle Deadwyler, Deon Cole and Damon Wayans Jr.

“I love to be a part of projects that widen the lens,” he told Entertainment Tonight in October. “Once it’s widened for us, it’s widened for Asians. For Mexicans. For everyone.”
