Rapper Boosie Badazz, known for his outlandish social media antics, lost his main Instagram account which has received a lifetime ban.
The Head of Instagram, Adam Mosseri, sat down earlier this week with The Breakfast Club and explained in detail why Boosie got banned from the app, “It’s a nudity policy. We try to be clear,” he stated. “You can appeal but if you have too many strikes, something will happen.”
Boosie shared a video response to Adam Mosseri on his fan page and shared his frustrations, “How the hell my Instagram was took cause of nudity? It was took cause of fucking racism,” he said.
Boosie then took a milder approach. “You done gave everybody they page back, give me another chance,” he begged.
“Give me my official Boosie page back with my 10.5 million followers so I can help feed my family some more. Do y’all think about the hurt that you cause people’s families when y’all take they page?”
When talking to fans using the “Ask A Question” feature on Instagram, Mosseri was asked about Boosie’s lifetime ban again. He chose to respond to that question out of the numerous ones that were asked. A concerned fan asked, “why won’t you give Boosie another chance with his main account?”
“The only content we try to take off of Instagram is when there’s safety concerns,” said Mosseri. “You don’t lose your account or get it suspended until you have a lot of strikes. And at some point, we have to draw the line.”
