It’s about time somebody put their foot down where Kanye West is concerned. The born-again rapper, who is in the process of getting divorced from his baby mama Kim Kardashian (whether he likes it or not) has been actin’ a fool (to put it mildly) when it comes to losing the woman of his dreams. It’s gone beyond just your typical Yeezus eccentricity. He’s actively harassing Kardashian as well as her new boy toy, Pete Davidson, and anyone else who tries to defend them. And he’s doing it primarily through social media. That is, until Instagram shut him down.
Unfortunately, the photo and video-sharing platform only suspended his account for 24 hours, meaning that for a day he could not post, comment, or send direct messages. Meta, which owns Instagram, also deleted the content that violated their hate speech, bullying and harassment policies.
It’s not the first time Instagram intervened on a celebrity’s account, but it is perhaps the one instance where someone really deserved to get canceled on the platform. Check out these other celebrities and the Instagram sins that got their handles taken away.
