    Okay, so I have a sports fan page for one of my favorite athletes. It has about 8,000 followers so far and I'm pretty happy with that since they are all big fans of the athlete. I do have issue with the username I had to use though. The athlete is Derrick Rose (NBA Player) and I had to use 'DerrickRoseHD' because the better option wasn't available. His more popular nickname 'drose' was already taken. I wouldn't of had a problem with it except for that the account has over 86,000 followers and has never posted a single photo.

    Is there anything I do to get a hold of this username? I've been on Instagram for a while and this profile has never done anything. Can I report to Instagram? What (if any) are my options?

    Thanks for the read.

    Ask the owner if you can buy it. But nope there is no possible way you can message instagram and get it.

    That's the thing, the account doesn't follow anyone, post anything, or view direct messages. There's no way to contact it.
