Close followers of Amanda Cerny, 25, and Lele Pons, 20, may have noticed this week that the two Vine stars had stopped following each other on social media — the foremost expression of contempt possible in this particular corner of the internet. It was a deeply concerning mystery: How could two stars of the six-second-comedy-video world turn their backs on each other? Why would a friendship like that fall apart? Does this mean that Amanda will follow me back? Yesterday, Cerny answered at least the first two of those questions. In her characteristically low-key manner, Pons then said that she was canceling her imminent trip to Italy to try and repair their relationship.

Making and keeping friends can be hard enough as it is, but try adding in the pressures of being social media superstars. For Vine stars and former BFFs Amanda Cerny and Lele Pons, that seems to be clearer than ever, now that news of a recent falling out is surfacing online — and takes hacking to a completely new level. Amanda wrote a candid blog post on TheDirty. Amanda accuses Lele of deleting photos and videos from her social media account, essentially sabotaging her following. Nothing but a good person to her. We never fought once.
