Feel special if you’re one of those people who’ve been trying to get into American rapper/singer T-Pain’s DM without receiving a reply- you’re actually part of an elite club that includes many celebrities that also didn’t get a reply.
Tpain took to Twitter yesterday, April 28 to share a comical TikTok of himself, walking viewers through multiple Instagram DMs and mentions, the “Bartender” singer revealed he had no idea that this was happening for at least two years.
The 35-year-old father of three captioned his tweet, “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”
In the video, while shaking his head at the lengthy list of stars, T-Pain wrote in the audible caption, “I was today years old when I found out about the request folder on Instagram that’s full of celebs trying to reach me.”
One star’s name was mentioned in particular, with Pain saying, “Dude is that Fergie?! smh”
The colossal list also includes Diplo, Viola Davis, and Karl-Anthony Towns.
Around the time his DMs started to go unnoticed, the rapper made an unforgettable appearance on FOX’s The Masked Singer, eventually winning the first season. Of that experience, he shared, “That was a strange feeling! I felt so bad, I did not want to win, but I felt good winning. But, you know, it came with a price.”
The price being beating out legendary stars Gladys Knight and Donny Osmond.
back in April 2020, Tpain and rapper Lil Jon broke the Internet with their mind-bending Verzuz face-off. The activity amassed over 280,000 viewers on Instagram- a feat that broke records at that time.
“I thought DM’s are supposed to just show up in the normal folder and you don’t have to go digging for all these,” he explained of his mishap. “I apologize to everybody on this list and the hundreds of others I couldn’t fit in this video. These are just the ones I’ve checked and replied to. Yup……I’m stupid,” acknowledged the rapper.
Sounds like someone needs to buy quite a few drinks.
