Chet Haze’s Instagram Account Deleted Then Restored Over “N-Word” Video
According to TMZ reports:
Instagram was trigger happy when it deleted Chet Haze’s entire page in response to him dropping the n-word in a post — but it’s now making amends with Tom Hanks’ son.
Chet’s profile was deleted on Wednesday … hours after he posted a video elaborating on what he describes as his right to say the n-word. In the clip he says, “What’s up my n**ga?”
That pissed off some IG users who flagged the video as offensive.
Instagram removed Haze’s account, but now says it acted too soon. A rep tells us, “When reviewing reports from the Instagram community, we do not always get it right and we wrongly removed this account.” They’ve since reactivated Chet’s page … including the video.
So, let’s review … the n-word is okay on IG (freedom of speech and all) — but nipples, still a no-no. We’re looking at you, Chelsea Handler.
What’s the point of the report abuse button if Instagram is just gonna let isht fly anyway?
