Jay Z deactivates Instagram account after Michael Jackson tribute

Rap star Jay Z has discontinued his Instagram account after a day.

While his wife Beyonce ranks among the most popular people on the image-sharing social media site, with over 44 million followers, Jay Z didn't even stick around to watch his profile pass 100,000 followers after he posted a tribute to Michael Jackson on Saturday (29Aug15).


Remembering the late King of Pop on his 57th birthday, Jay Z posted a photo of himself and Jackson at the 2001 Hot 97 Summer Jam festival and wrote, "Happy Birthday to the King!" and added, "This may be my first and last post."


The @Hovsince96 account was deactivated on Sunday morning, according to the New York Daily News.
