Es ist traurig, aber wahr: Instagrams bekannteste Hipster-Barbie hört auf. Vor wenigen Stunden postete die Schöpferin des Accounts einen letzten Beitrag, in dem sie sich selbst vorstellt und von den über 1,3 Millionen Followers verabschiedet. Darby Cisneros hatte es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, die Trends zu perfekten Posen und aufwändig erstellen Instagram-Posts mit SocalityBarbie auf die Schippe zu nehmen. Ihr Werk sei nun getan, schrieb Cisneros: Sie habe alles gesagt, was sie zu den Sozialen Medien loswerden wollte.

Hey guys, my name is Darby Cisneros and I am the creator of SocalityBarbie. I just wanted to introduce myself and thank all of you for enjoying this account. I started SB as a way to poke fun at all the Instagram trends that I thought were ridiculous. Never in 1 million years did I think it would receive the amount of attention that it did but because of that it has open the door to a lot of great discussions like: how we choose to present ourselves online, the insane lengths many of us go to to create the perfect Instagram life, and calling into question our authenticity and motives. It’s been a blast running this account but I believe SB’s work here is done. I will be leaving this account open for a while for people still want to look through and enjoy it. Again, thank you for following along. If anyone has any questions or just want to say hi feel free to email me at socalitybarbie@gmail.com ✌️#RIP (account NOT for sale)
