Along with many other celebrities, Kim Kardashian West has chosen to freeze some of her social media accounts to support the #StopHateForProfit.

Kardashian West has nearly 190 million Instagram followers and it would be interesting to discover the impact of this freeze, whether some of her followers may follow suit.
