Boosie Badazz says he’s suing Instagram for racial discrimination
Boosie made the announcement after the social media platform stopped his recent Instagram Live.
Boosie Badazz’s ongoing problems with Instagram may just end with a lawsuit against the social media platform.
On Thursday (Sept. 17), the Baton Rouge rapper was upset after his Instagram Live was shut down. He hopped on Twitter and vented his frustrations, adding he was going to call his lawyer Drew Findling and file a lawsuit against Instagram. “I STARTED A NEW IG @boosienewig n they stopped my live soon as shaderoom posted it,” he tweeted. “I HAVEN’T POSTED NOTHIN R WENT LIVE. This is discrimination/racial etc. IM SUEING. CALLING DREW NOW.”
Boosie’s rift with Instagram began in March when he received a warning about the overly sexual content displayed in his rowdy Instagram Live show. At the time, the rapper announced he wasn’t “stopping shit,” arguing the platform was trying to stop the entertainment he provided to viewers while in quarantine. “I’m showing the world a good time. Everytime I try to show the world a good time, they just try and take it from me,” he said.
His failure to comply to Instagram’s request resulted in a temporary ban, but continued violations eventually resulted in his profile being deactivated.
Since then, the “Wipe Me Down” hitmaker has made pleas to get his page restored, even offering Mark Zuckerberg $100,000. Upon realizing his efforts were unsuccessful, he created a temporary account that has already amassed 368,000 followers.
Amid his issues with Instagram, Boosie will most likely continue to connect with his fans on his Twitter account as he’s done in the past. Last month, while he attempted to get his original Instagram account reinstated, he tweeted his thoughts about Kim Kardashian joining the fight to free his friend C-Murder. “@kimkardashianwest If You Free CMurder, I Got You For Life,” he tweeted. “That’s On Bleek.”
