In fact, it's a fairly common phenomenon to gain a share of fake followers even for ordinary people no thanks to spam accounts. But when celebrities are reported to have a dubious following, it's still shocking — especially when it's someone so well-loved like Ellen DeGeneres. The talk show host is reported to have the biggest share of fake followers on Instagram (in the show business) at 58 per cent, according to a study by The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance.
