Sometimes these incredible responses make headlines and other times it goes under the radar, but they range from advice, kind words, or even simple responses and acknowledgments that show that celebrities are in fact listening to their fans.

If you really mean it, there is nothing to be scared of. Be honest and vulnerable; that is what makes you feel human. And feeling human, the good and the bad is what life is. Hope it goes well. Love, H”.

Do celebrities reply on Instagram?

The best way to get a reply from a celebrity on Instagram is by tagging or mentioning them in your content. DMs occasionally work, but they can also go straight to the message requests folder which makes them difficult for celebrities to see.

How do you know if a celebrity is really messaging you?

If you are messaging with an account that appears to be owned by a celebrity, always use caution. There are many people out there who pretend to be celebrities on social media. Make sure that you are actually messaging with the celebrity’s official account. A verified account checkmark is always the best way to know that you are talking to an official account.

  1. That google chat is scam. I knew it was from the beginning, celebrities don’t do that . I became friends with the real celebrity by telling him someone was pretending to be him. If they don’t send you a picture or voice message, report and block them immediately.

  2. Hi I have talked to a so called celebrity telling me that they are my favourite artist on telegram and then she sent me her email asking me to send an itunes card to pass a test.

  3. I’ve had the fake pleasure of talking to 2 phonys. Liza Minnelli and Anthony Hopkins. They both had me believing they’d help support autism because I have a adult non verbal autistic son severely autistic. I did my research and found out it was bologna with both. Such a damn shame cause we the autism community so desperately need the help.

    I have had Several so called Celebrities. Brendan Fraser. David Grohl. John Cusack. Jimmy Kimmel. Johnny Depp.Rufus Wainwright . Joni Mitchell try to get my phone #. Email. What do I look like?. What are my Thoughts. Interest.etc… Really ? I play along. Until like John Cusack says ” will you be my girlfriend? ” ” I want to meet a Nice Lady that is not after my Money” The John Cusack on Google Chat or Messenger or Telegram can not even spell!! It is a Sad World 🌍🌎. I met John Cusack in Dallas Texas. He Comped my Ticket. But at The Meet and Greet ( which I did not attend) I heard from some people that there was a Glass Wall between John Cusack and people that paid a lot of money 🤑💰. They were Very Upset!!! I felt sorry for them. They did not get a picture, autograph, NOT A THING !!!! You know Celebs are just People they put their clothes on just like we regular people!!! Sorry I had to Vent!!!. Thank You. Kellene Erin Hubbard

  5. I’ve been talking to my favorite singer/actor and our conversations started on Facebook messenger for 24hrs then he ask me to go to Google chat and we’ve been talking since. Never said anything about any kind of money until he wanted me to do a Diamond meet and greet no it’s like 4000$ for that and then he started talking about trust wallet Bitcoin and simplex. Now he says he will pay 2000$ and I’m to pay 1500$ for Diamond meet and greet. Then I need to get a fan id. But they want me to pay through cash app and sends me cash app code. I think it’s a scam but not for sure. They use proper English and punctuation.
