This is definitely not the first time an Instagram update has led to users having a meltdown.

"If you're still seeing it you can simply restart your app and you should be good to go". "We apologize for any confusion", a spokesman told TechCrunch.

"We quickly fixed the issue and feed is back to normal". No one is sure if this was because of the negative reaction on the social media platform or if it was a time-limited test that reached more users then it should have.
