‘I think I’m going to delete the app’: Radio host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson reveals the heartbreaking reason she’s QUITTING Instagram

Jackie ‘O’ Henderson has shared the sad yet very relatable reason why she’s decided to quit social media for good. 

The radio host, 46, admitted on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Wednesday she’s tired of feeling miserable every time she scrolls through her Instagram feed.

‘I’ve stopped using Instagram because I get off it and feel not good about myself. I actually feel worse than before I went on it,’ the mother of one said.

Jackie, who boasts 204,000 followers on the Facebook-owned social media platform, added: ‘I just think it’s not real, everything is so Photoshopped.’ 

‘Everyone just looks like they’re having a better life than I am. It’s like they’re getting out more and they’re doing things,’ she continued. 

Her co-host Kyle Sandilands, who does not have any social media accounts, agreed with Jackie’s summation, branding Instagram ‘completely fake’.

‘Everyone is pretending, the whole thing is pretend in all honesty,’ he said. 

Jackie then revealed she’s considering removing Instagram from her phone for good because she’s tired of feeling bad about herself.

‘I don’t want to know what everyone is doing. I think I’m going to delete the app,’ she said.

It comes after Jackie took a stab at influencers for spruiking ‘unnecessary’ products on Instagram.

‘I’m really getting over Instagram and people flogging products and doing ads. I just don’t like it too much,’ she said on the radio in May last year. 

‘If you do it every now and then and you feel it suits you and it fits with your brand, I think, ‘Fine, do it.’

‘But if you’re just flogging face creams et cetera, I just get over looking at your posts because I don’t think you’re very authentic.’ 

Jackie added that influencers must not get paid that much, with the exception of top-tier stars like Kim Kardashian or Charlie Demilio. 

Kyle said he wouldn’t buy a product online just because he saw an influencer promoting it, and questioned whether influencing ‘even works’. 

‘If you follow a bikini girl on Instagram but they’re selling acne cream [it’s not going to work] because most of them will be blokes,’ he said.

‘It’s not really going to translate and it’s a big hole. A lot of people think it’s going to work one way and it doesn’t.’
