If Blake lively and Ryan Reynolds are separated then I am blocking every single guy in my phone and social media bc I will lose faith in “love”

Soon, there was a clue. People started to notice that Blake was now only following 28 women named Emily Nelson.

They were even more confused.

Was it a hack?

Don't worry, though, everyone. THIS IS NOT A TIME TO PANIC. Blake soon posted a tweet alluding to this mysterious Emily.

The movie is based on a book by Darcey Bell, and is about a woman trying to solve the mystery of her best friend's disappearance. The friend's name is — you guessed it — Emily Nelson.

Lively will star with Anna Kendrick in the movie, which will be released this fall.

It appears the Instagram wipe is a Taylor Swift–esque promo for the movie.

Once it became clear what was happening, people were pretty impressed with the stunt.

Can you imagine just living life with the name “Emily Nelson”, then one day @blakelively follows you on Insta to promote her movie. Haha hi, I’m Emily.

And all Emilys were jealous.

So I heard that @blakelively was following only people named Emily on Instagram & panicked realizing my name wasn't in my username so I changed it only to find out she's following people named "Emily Nelson". 😭💔#SoClose #Emily #EmilyNelson https://t.co/zxw5jHboUb
