I have direct messaged comedian and actor, John Early, more than once on Instagram with zero response. I thought he was fringe enough to still be grateful for his fan base and that he would respond with a “hey girl, hey! why don’t you come over after tonight’s show and do some improv with Kate and I?”. Nope. Nada.
Maybe someone with a little more clout would have better luck. YouTuber, JENNXPENN, who has more than 3M followers on YouTube and 1.6M on Instagram, decided to DM random celebrities to see if they would reply. Check out her response rate.
