Instagram recently announced changes to its policies that have a lot of people pissed off. Under the new regulations, it seemed for a moment as though the photo sharing site would be able to use pictures from people's accounts without compensating the poster.

Despite later announcing that this was a misinterpretation of their policy change, they've still angered one very prominent 'Gram-er -- Kim Kardashian. The reality star recently announced that in light of these changes, she may take her plentiful ass and leave the site.

TMZ reports that Kardashian -- who has the most followers of any Insta user, at 5,726,343 -- is spreading the word about her potentially pending departure:

"...Kim K...is telling friends she's thinking about shutting down her Instagram account, going to a rival photo-posting company ... and taking ALL OF HER FOLLOWERS WITH HER."

It's a bold move, but it might be a power move. She's reportedly making the threats contingent upon the photo app making drastic changes to its new policy.

You guys, what if Kim Kardashian did something good for an app that hipsters love? Watch as confusion, paranoia and identity crises settle in like dark clouds over the apartment buildings of Silver Lake and Echo Park...
