Quarantine Quarantine Quarantine Radio!!!
Tory Lanez’ Quarantine Radio has gained popularity on Instagram with major artists like Chris Brown and Drake as guests. Instagram temporarily suspended access to going live on Lanez' page due to a violation of community guidelines.
Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri addressed the suspension, claiming Lanez' page showed nude content:
“Quarantine Radio is great, so first, shoutout to Tory Lanez on that. Quarantine Radio is not banned,” Mosseri clarified. “The Lives have been great, the Lives with the fans have been great. But you can’t have nudity. That’s part of our community guidelines, part of our community rules, and we can’t make exceptions.”
“On a couple of those Lives there was nudity, so we had to stop the Live. There’s a short period of time where you can’t go Live again, and we have to stick to the rules, otherwise why do we have them?” he continued.
The rappers followers are speaking on the ruling, saying it was unfair, starting the #FreeTory hashtag.
