A university student was shocked when she discovered another student had allegedly mimicked her posts on social media for two years. Chloe Cowan found out that one girl had been re-enacting poses and wearing similar outfits in the pictures as she “stalked her to the extreme.”
While it’s nothing new for Instagram users to get inspiration from other people on the popular photo-sharing platform, this particular copycat took things to a whole new level by posting the same captions as well. It isn’t clear why the girl has been copying Chloe, but one theory is she could be trying to gain more followers.
The fellow undergraduate behind the copycat posts, who calls herself “Honey Basra” shared eerily similar photos on her own account with the same outfits, in the same poses, and even with the same captions.
Chloe’s sister Linzi took to Facebook to warn people of dangers of social media:
“My sister Chloe is at Dundee University and another girl living in Dundee (who my sister wasn’t aware of until this week) has been reenacting her life on Instagram for almost two years.
This girl’s stalking behavior is to the extreme of reenacting videos of a photo album that Chloe posted of my dad who passed away (gives me the shivers when I think about it).”
“Her behavior is not ok and I just wanted this out in the open for people to be aware of just how scary social media can be.
My sister should not have to hide away in worry of her every move being stalked by another girl! Imitation is flattering, but this is just too far.”
Linzi said she believes the girl is from London and started mimicking her sister after moving to Dundee because she had no social media profiles.
She shared a series of photos comparing her sister’s original Instagram posts to the woman’s own lookalike version.
It was claimed that Basra even copied Chloe’s Instagram name of ChloeCowan17xo with her own, HoneyBasra18xo.
After Linzi’s post became viral with over 11,000 shares, the copycat Instagram account has now been deleted, and the girl appears to have vanished.
