A day after shutting down the hottest show on IG live “Quarantine Radio”, Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram explained why.
Yesterday afternoon (April 7) Tory Lanez was ready to start his weekly must see IG live show, when all of a sudden he was hit with the infamous “Action Blocked” message. Indicating he had been blocked from IG live until April 14th. Full story here.
With no specific reason, aside from the message stating “We restrict certain content”, Tory Lanez was left to wonder. Starting his #freetory campaign, and with the help of other celebrities speaking out against Instagram, Tory finally got his answer.
It all came down to the N word. No not that one, but rather the word “Nudity”. Appearing on The Shade Room Radio, Adam Mosseri addresses the temporary ban praises Tory Lanez, “Quarantine Radio is great, so shout out to Tory Lanez for that.“
“The lives have been great, the lives with the fans have been great,” said Adam. “But you can’t have nudity on Instagram. That’s part of our community guidelines, it’s part of the rules and we can’t make exceptions. And on a couple of those lives, on two accounts, there was nudity so we had to stop the live.“
So will the show return? Well yes, but not just yet. According to Adam, Tory Lanez has to play by the same rules as every other user on Instagram.”There’s a short period of time where you can’t go live again. We have to stick to the rules otherwise why do we have them? But generally, big fan of Tory Lanez, big fan of Quarantine Radio. I hope it comes back soon, but no nudity! We can’t have that.“
Tory Lanez questioned the decision, and commented with, “THAT’S CAP. Cmooooooon MAAAAAYNE.” What do you think? Can Quarantine Radio thrive in a PG-13 environment?“
