Ryan Reynolds Responds to Blake Lively Unfollowing Him on Instagram

"It definitely stings."

Remember when Blake Lively savagely unfollowed her husband (opens in new tab), Ryan Reynolds on Instagram, and then proceeded to purge her feed of every single one of her photos, too? Well, her hubby has a lot of feelings about it, even though it was just a big ole' PR stunt for her new movie, A Simple Favor (opens in new tab).

"It definitely stings," Reynolds jokingly said in an interview with Australian show Smallzy’s Surgery. "It’s a terrible way to find out that I’ve been kicked out of the house, to be honest. Absolutely terrible. I don’t know where rage like that comes from.”

He went on to say that his children—James, 3, and Ines, 1—probably wouldn't understand the social media drama. “[I’d tell them], ‘Mommy unfollowed Daddy on Instagram,’ [and] my child would just fart and walk away,” he joked.

Yesterday, the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (opens in new tab) actress, wiped her Instagram completely clean, and was noticeably following only users with the name Emily Nelson (so, not her husband).

After some intense sleuthing—or rather, just a trip to Lively's IMDb page (opens in new tab)—it was discovered that she's starring in a new movie, which she just dropped a trailer (opens in new tab) for this morning in her first lone post back on Instagram.

Hopefully they'll be back to their Instagram trolling game (opens in new tab) soon!
