Celebrity sisters Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian blasted Instagram on Monday, urging the app to stop copying rival TikTok.

To their hundreds of millions of Instagram followers, Jenner and Kardashian posted a message that read, “Make Instagram Instagram Again.”

“Strobe is trying to be a tiktok, I just want to see cute pictures of my friends,” the post read.

Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, which owns Facebook and Instagram, has been pushing short videos, a market that TikTok dominates on mobile.

Both Jenner and Kardashian are huge social media influencers. In 2018, Jenner criticized the redesign of Instagram competitor Snapchat, which caused shares of parent company Snap to plunge 7 percent.

Meta shares have been relatively flat in the post-close trading period.

Instagram did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment.
