CENSORSHIP: Shadow & Account Ban
What reason was given for your ban?
Why do you think your post(s) was censored?
Speaking about Latin American minorities. Because as in other institutions in London, Latin American indigenous /mestizo minorities are not trendy, and that is what I did a photography editorial on.
Were you able to appeal and what was the response?
Yes, no response and it’s been 4 months. I got it back after 6-7 months.
What effect has your experience of censorship had on you?
I am a photographer and I lost every contact with clients and followers.
What’s one thing you want people to know about this topic?
Instagram will censor anything that does not align with their trends and beliefs.
