Boosie Badazz was booted from Instagram again this weekend and is now taking the fight to Facebook co-founder and Instagram co-owner Mark Zuckerberg.
Returning to Twitter on Sunday (March 28), Boosie tweeted, “[Mark Zuckerberg] u just a racist.”
The 38-year-old has had a rocky relationship with the social media platform and was last suspended from his account back in August. This time, Instagram officials deleted his account after he posted a behind-the-scenes clip from an upcoming music video he was filming with DaBaby. The video is for his and DaBaby’s recent single, “Period.”
For the video, Boosie put out an open call for someone who would be willing to take a blow to the face for $554.
The rapper apparently found a willing participant and the behind-the-scenes clip shows him open-hand slapping a man inside a store. The man was reportedly paid the agreed-upon $554 for the hit and was tipped an extra $200 by DaBaby.
Although the alarming clip was in fact a stunt, Instagram deemed the video too violent and removed it from the platform and also deleted Boosie’s account. On Twitter, Boosie revealed he made a new account with the handle @HesBackAgain2021. At the time of publishing, the account has around 155,000 followers.
Boosie was forced to make a new profile in August after his account was suspended, which he claimed cost him millions of dollars in endorsements and partnership deals. During an interview with VladTV in December, Boosie argued that he was being targeted by the social media site because of his profession and race.
“This is discrimination,” he said at the time. “Something is wrong. Somebody must be mad because I said their name wrong and they chastis[ing] me... And my Black people are starting to tell me that, ‘Boosie, this man is a racist. He knows you affect the Black community and make them smile every morning.’”
