Kendall Jenner made waves on the internet on Sunday when she abruptly deleted her Instagram account. "Why Kendall, why?!" the world cried, "Why must you delete your Instagram at a time when we desperately need distractions from this onslaught of political madness?!" Well, the world got its answer on Wednesday, when Kendall revealed the reason behind her Instagram blackout on Ellen.

Jenner revealed that the reason behind her sudden departure was simply a need to go off the grid for a few days. “I just wanted to detox. I felt like I just wanted a little bit of a break. I’m always on it. … I would wake up in the morning and I would look at it first thing, I would go to bed and it was the last thing I would look at,” Jenner told Ellen. "I felt a little too dependent on it, so I kinda wanted to take a minute to detox."


Kendall says she was surprised that her deleting her Instagram ended up being a big news story.

“My friends kept texting me and my family members, and I was like, How does everyone know? And they kept sending me links to, like, CNN and all these things and I was like, Why is this even that big of a deal?” she said. "It's so crazy."

"But Kendall! Will your fun pics ever return?!" you ask. Well, she answered that question too.

“I’ll be back. I’ll come back. It’s been two days! Withdrawals are starting to occur,” she said.


See guys? No reason to freak out.
