Boosie – Head Of IG Says Rapper Was Banned From App Because Of Explicit Content: You Gotta Draw The Line Somewhere
He said in a video in August 2020,
“They just took my Instagram! Mark Zuckenberger, I need to talk to you! Bosses need to talk to bosses. I don’t know what I did, but I need my Instagram back. I don’t even know what I did, but this is how I feed my family! Mark, do not do this to 2020! Do not take Boosie off Instagram! We need to talk, Mark!”
“You need to take me to orientation or somethin’, but you can’t put me out of school!…we ain’t makin’ no show money, Mark Zuckerberger- none of the rappers! I need my Instagram back! I told everybody @ him right now. Tell him call my assistant!”

Now, the head of Instagram, Adam Mosseri, is explaining why the rapper is no longer allowed on the popular social media platform.
He said while on The Breakfast Club today (July 27th),
“You’ve gotta draw the line somewhere. It’s a nudity policy. We try to be clear. You can appeal but if you get too many strikes, something will happen.”
DJ Envy said that he’s reported Kim Kardashian multiple times for inappropriate content, and Adam Mosseri made it clear if it’s explicit, even her content will get removed.
Charlamagne asked if Instagram understood the culture and pointed out that some personalities and celebrities have used the N-word out of affection and their post will be taken down anyway. Mosseri said,
“It’s tough. No, we don’t understand culture perfectly…There are things where we just have to draw the line or define a rule that is practical…”
He said while it’s okay for people to disagree, it’s not okay for Instagram to not be transparent about its rules and policy.
