Hello, my loves! We all have that one (or couple) Instagram comment that we all delete when we see it. Getting those comments can really irritate us and want to turn off comments forever, myself included. Without further adieu, here are the Instagram comments I hate receiving.

Instagram Comment I Hate #1: “Promote it on XYZ account”
This is one comment I get all the time, and I simply delete the comment and block the commenter. No, I do not want to promote my content on that page because they are most likely not going to give me credit and steal my photo. I have heard many horror stories of people who have had their photo stolen with no credit given back to them, and the account stealing the photos blocking the original creator. I do not have the time and energy to go through that hassle, so I just block and delete.
Instagram Comment I Hate #2: “Are you selling *insert item in photo*?”
None of the items on my account are going to be for sale; they are for my viewers, and you are now *blocked*. For reference, I am not and will never be a seller account.
Instagram Comment I Hate #3: Generic, one-worded comments
Nothing is worse than receiving a thoughtless, one-worded comment. Comments such as “nice” “love” or anything else get on my nerves. It shows that the person is clearly commenting in the hopes of a like for like or follow for follow. Not going to happen. I actually dislike it when people follow, and then unfollow me, and then follow me again. I have blocked a few people on Instagram just for follow-unfollow-following me.
Instagram Comment I Hate #4: Comments with random emojis
I received a comment on one of my Instagram reels that just had a couple of the 😢emoji and I immediately deleted it. When I make a reel, I am making it out of positivity. The fact that people spam random emotes really bugs me, and I delete those comments. I did not make my reel to make you feel bad in any way, shape, or form.
Instagram Comment I Hate #5: Comments that criticize
Any criticizing comments immediately get deleted. We don’t need that negativity here, nor will I tolerate it. It’s sad to think that there are people who actively target influencers and have nothing nice to say about them. What is the point of making a nasty comment when someone won’t even say it to their friend or their sister? If anyone has nothing nice to say, it’s better to just keep quiet.
Instagram Action I Hate #1: Spam Liking
Spam liking absolutely infuriates the ever-loving cookies out of me. There’s nothing more frustrating and infuriating than going on Instagram and seeing the same person like 10 of your photos in a row. Spam liking is not only not appreciated, but it also puts the creator at risk of having their account deleted or suspended as Instagram now thinks the creator has created spam-like bots to create fake engagement. I have taken it to myself that from now on if anyone likes more than 5 photos in a row of mine, I will block them to prevent my account from being deactivated by Instagram.
Instagram Action I Hate #2: Following, then unfollowing, then following again
It’s annoying as all when you see the same name pop up on your ” *insert username* is now following you” notification every day. It’s not only disrespectful to you as a creator, it also feels like a waste of time for whoever is playing the follow-unfollow-follow game. I had a local account do that to me a couple of years ago, and I got fed up and blocked them and they are no longer active on Instagram. Karma.
Those are the Instagram comments and actions I hate receiving. Are there any Instagram comments you hate?
