It seems as if Boosie flipped the switch too much on Instagram, and now he’s suffering from a case of a deleted account. Boosie’s had a complicated relationship with social media, but Instagram has specifically seemed to be a thorn in his side. Instagram was done with Boosie but he’s not done with Instagram.
Boosie often takes to social media to make controversial statements, so often that one wonders if he’s trying to be a troll on purpose. Earlier this year, Boosie came under fire for comments he made about another 12-year-old child – not his own, but Dwyane Wade’s child, Zaya Wade. Zaya emerged as a voice for LGBT youth and gained fans when she chose to be referred to as “she,” and Boosie had some choice words for Zaya and her parents on his own Instagram.
Boosie came under fire for saying: “Don’t cut his d— off, bruh. He’s 12 years old. He’s not up there yet. He hasn’t made his final decisions yet. You f*****g trippin’, dawg.” The “you” that Boosie is referencing is of course, Zaya’s father, Dwyane Wade.
Despite his stance, Boosie did acknowledge that speaking his truth has hurt him financially. Even with the support he may get from others on the Internet, it seems as if his sponsors are unwilling to support him in his very-public transphobic stance. Boosie claims to support the community, even with the controversy hurting his pockets.
Boosie came under fire from Instagram, allegedly breaking the platform’s rules when he solicited inappropriate images of women – for cash – during his Instagram Live sessions, the same sessions in which he first spoke out about Zaya Wade’s decision to make her own choices. Boosie the hustler decided to set up his own website and do it anyway – away from the prying eyes of Instagram and the “media” – who he also claims is controlling the pandemic.
In another video, Boosie tells his fans nonchalantly how he is “training” his boys – including his nephews along with his own child – for adulthood. “I’m training those boys, ask my nephews or any of my sons. When they were 12-13, they got h–d.”
After the video went viral, multiple people on social media claimed that they contacted child services – to report the rapper.
With all of the controversy that his Instagram account has caused him, you’d think that the rapper would monitor his activity on the platform, especially after being suspended before for breaking their rules. It must have been one violation too many however, because now Boosie’s been banned from Instagram – and is begging “Mark Zuckinburger” aka Mark Zuckerberg to restore his account.
“They just took my Instagram,” says the deflated Boosie. “Mark Zuckinburger, 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.”
Boosie doesn’t seem to know what straw ultimately broke the camel’s back, but as of now, his Instagram account hasn’t been restored.
