The Bella Twins know a thing or two about running a social media empire. They have photos with plenty of likes on Instagram, but they’re weighing in on a recent controversy in a way that some might not expect them to.

During the Bella Twins’ podcast, the subject of Instagram doing away with “likes” came up. Nikki and Brie both agree they should be 86’ed.

“You know how Instagram keeps going back and forth about taking away likes, and I know some people are like, ‘uh uh,’ but sometimes I think like, do it!” Brie Bella said.

Nikki Bella then chimed in and totally agreed with her sister. “I think take them away. Why put the pressure on people?”

Their guest on that week’s show, Cheryl Burke, said that they should take away the comments as well. The Bellas agreed with that idea, too.

Social media can become a competition where an account’s clout depends on how many people smash that “like” button.” If you ask the Bella Twins, Instagram should do away with it entirely.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
