Angelina Jolie has joined the Instagram game!
The Hollywood legend amassed (as of now) over 1.7 million followers in just an hour after sharing her first post: “A Letter From An Afghan Girl.” She also follows zero people on the social media platform.
“This is a letter I was sent from a teenage girl in Afghanistan,” The humanitarian captioned the post on Friday, August 20, referring to the horrific Taliban takeover of the country. “Right now, the people of Afghanistan are losing their ability to communicate on social media and to express themselves freely. So I’ve come on Instagram to share their stories and the voices of those across the globe who are fighting for their basic human rights.”
Fans welcomed the A-lister to the social media site with open arms. “Angelina, thank you for using your platform for good 😍👏,” one user commented on her post, while another said: “Welcome, and thank you for all you do on behalf of refugees.”
The powerful message comes as the Salt actress is in the middle of a contentious custody battle with ex Brad Pitt over their six children: Maddox, 19, Pax, 17, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 14 and 13-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.
The actress was handed a legal victory last month as her petition to have Judge John Ouderkirk removed from the custody case.
OK! learned the California Court of Appeal ruled that the judge failed his “ethical” duty by not disclosing “his recent professional relationships with Pitt’s counsel,” opening up a reason to “entertain a doubt as to the judge’s ability to be impartial” therefore “disqualification is required."
The 46-year-old mother-of-six and Pitt hired the private judge to hopefully maintain some secrecy in the case, but Jolie made it clear she thought Ouderkirk was favoring her ex.
The judge already ruled the former flames — who split in 2016 — were legally divorced, but separated the child custody issues.
As OK! previously reported, the Maleficent star alleged in court documents that three of the former couple's children wanted to testify against their dad — who was awarded joint custody — but weren’t allowed to.
