News about Instagram banning the famous Kenyan socialite Shakilla from using its platform came with mixed reactions from netizens. Some welcoming the move citing the moral rot in the celebrity’s posts.
Below are the community guidelines on Instagram that the self-proclaimed queen of the streets allegedly violated.
S3xually suggestive content.
Shakilla has been using her Instagram account to post what the platform termed as violation of its community guidelines, prompting the action that was taken.
Most of the content the young socialite has been posting on the platform violated the appropriate imagery allowed on the platform.
According to the guideline, nudity is not allowed. The only appropriate imagery acceptable include photos of post-mastectomy scarring, women actively breastfeeding and nudity in photos of paintings and sculptures.
The move by Instagram to temporarily block Shakilla came after she had gone live the previous day, probably showcasing content that further degraded the platform’s policies.
Below is a list of community guidelines that Instagram prohibits:
Hate Speech, Bullying and Abuse
Instagram does not allow attacks or abuse based on race, ethnicity, national origin, s3x, gender, gender identity, s3xual orientation, religion, disability or disease.
Instagram will pull down any content that is flagged and disputed as not original to the account user.
Make sure you have the rights to post the content you share.
Creating or submitting unwanted email, comments, likes or other forms of commercial or harassing communications are not allowed on the platform.
The platform will remove videos or images of intense, graphic violence.
Instagram has made it clear that it doesn’t allow support or praise of terrorism, organized crime or hate groups.
Other illegal content includes offering sexual services and selling firearms and drugs.
The platform does not allow nudity, with some exceptions, like photos of post-mastectomy scarring, women actively breastfeeding and nudity in photos of paintings and sculptures is OK, too.
The platform only allows content that references self-injury and eating disorders if it is for the purpose of creating awareness or signposting support.
