Reasons behind the suspension of Instagram account of the self-acclaimed entertainer, Tunde Ednut has been revealed.
The second suspension is coming three days after Ednut attained one million followers on the platform.
Abacityblog.com had reported on December 22, 2020, his account (@tundeednut), which had nearly 2.6 million followers, was suspended ‘indefinitely’ over claims that it violated the app’s terms and conditions.
However, on January 10, Tunde rejoined Instagram with another handle (@kingtundeednut) and in less than three days he raked in over 1 million followers due to the overwhelming support from some Nigerian celebrities and entertainers.
On reaching 1 million followers, Tunde did a N1million ‘giveaway to his followers,’ but his account was suspended afterwards.
Investigation revealed that Ednut’s second Instagram suspension was in reaction of the kind of content he put out, which allegedly bordered on degrading and body-shaming women, cyberbullying fellow celebrities and engaging in spamming activities that went against Instagram’s policies.
Instagram in its ‘account disable policy’ stated: “We disable accounts that have a certain percentage of violating content. We are now rolling out a new policy where, in addition to removing accounts with a certain percentage of violating content, we will also remove accounts with a certain number of violations within a window of time.
“Similarly, to how policies are enforced on Facebook, this change will allow us to enforce our policies more consistently and hold people accountable for what they post on Instagram.”
