I know I said I was done with this story for today, but I also said that I’d be back if more news broke. Well, that just happened. Controversial Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos was just banned from Instagram for reasons that are, as of now, unknown. All I know is that his Instagram was pretty mild when I checked it the other day, so this isn’t making a lot of sense.
As I receive more info this post will be updated.
As of now, Milo has not spoken on Facebook about this new development. However, as many of you know, Facebook owns Instagram. It’s reasonable to speculate that his days there may be numbered as well.
UPDATE: Someone alerted me to the fact that his Instagram is now back up. I checked myself and this is true. It looks like Facebook/Instagram reinstated him after the massive uproar on social media. Maybe spam reports got him suspended in the first place? I can’t say for sure, but I can tell you that the profile is back up.
back up now. FB investigating why it was taken down.
