T-Pain is making a startling discovery.
The singer reveals that he just found his direct messages requests folder on Instagram. On Wednesday, he posted a TikTok video where he showed hundreds of waiting messages filled with famous names. He scrolled through his inbox, which included celebrities like Diplo, Fergie, Viola Davis, and YBN Nahmir.
“I was today years old when I found out about the requests folder on Instagram that’s full of celebs trying to reach me,” said T-Pain, who admitted to feeling “stupid.” “I’ve been accidentally straight up ignoring all these people for like 2 years.”
He went on to apologize for not noticing the DMs until now. “I swear!! I’m just now seeing all these messages and mentions TODAY!!!! How do I super apologize? Press conference? Town hall meeting? I’m dumb,” he added.
Keri Hilson, who was one of the missed messages, responded with laughter, while Ashanti commiserated with T-Pain. “Omg I literally just did the same exact thing like two days ago,” she wrote in the comments.
