Rapper Lil Pump Has Lost 300,000 Instagram Followers Since Endorsing Donald Trump

The rapper Lil Pump has lost around 300,000 Instagram followers since endorsing Donald Trump.
The 20-year-old joined Trump on stage at a rally donning a MAGA hat and has shared numerous posts since supporting the POTUS.
However, it seems many of his followers aren't a fan of his politics, as his following has dropped from 17.3 million to a meagre 17 million.
He's also changed his name on Insta to 'Lil Pimp', as a nod to Trump's erroneous introduction at the rally.
The campaign event took place in Florida just before polls closed and Trump told the crowds: "Speaking of sound, music and other things, one of the big superstars of the world, Little Pimp... there he is."
He went on to encourage the rapper - real name Gazzy Garcia - on to the podium,
He said: "How's it going, do you want to come up and say something? Come on, Lil Pump, come on up here. Does everyone know who he is? Do you know how big he is?"
The rapper obliged and took the opportunity to thank Trump.
He said: "Hello everybody. How're you guys feeling? I've come here to say, Mr President, I appreciate everything you've done for our country.
"You brought the troops home and you're doing the right thing. MAGA 20, 20, 20. Don't forget that, don't forget that. And, don't vote for sleepy Joe [Biden] at all."
He's not the only rapper to endorse Trump though. In fact, he's not even the only rapper called Lil to support the president.
Lil Wayne - or Lil Dwayne, as Trump might call him - has also publicly supported the 74-year-old.
Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus besides what he's done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done. pic.twitter.com/Q9c5k1yMWf
